I meant what I said when I started my profile with "I am a lucky girl" Well... down here in the South we tend to say "blessed" not wanting the Lord to think we are ungrateful! I am a little bit lucky and a whole lot blessed. I am lucky that all of us play the piano--blessed that music is such a part of our lives. I am lucky that my hubby is so handsome-- blessed because he is honest, true and a great father to my children. I am lucky to to live in a small town where we have many family and friends--blessed to live in this great land of America.
Lucky is good-Blessed is truly great!
Happy green day...
May you have the luck of the Irish
and the blessings of a Saint!
I scrapbook by theme, events and holidays... I love this method because the albums always come out on the holiday or event instead of being left on the shelf!
Here's a bit of my St Paddy's Day album... and pictures yet to be scrapbooked.
I always include my children's art work in my holiday albums:)
|Be sure and spray construction paper with Archival Mist to prevent crumbling. |
I very often cut out the artwork image and mount it on acid free cardstock.
|These original stories are priceless!|
One thing I want to add is a small picture of the child around the same time on the page.
|I only keep original art work, not colored copies.|
|I always make a "cover page" for my holiday albums.|
One year we had a family game night and
homemade cinnamon rolls with green icing:)
|One year Danielle wanted to keep her tree up for holiday decorating all year.|
We did several holidays until we gave up after 4th of July:)
This was a Happy St Patrick's day text from my daughter today...my favorite pictures of all!
|I am lucky to have such a cute grandbaby...|
blessed that she is healthy, happy,
and has sweet parents who will always love and care for her.
Lucky is good...Blessed is truly great!
