Okay, here's the whole book i made for my child - When i left my exhusband (using the word husband loosely) he burned all my baby pix of me/sara-this is all i have of Sara when she was younger (last page)


I got this book from SIL (DiannaMF) this past Xmas.. I finally filled it up LOL


I'm going to add a letter in the inside cover.. Just my thoughts and advise and encouragement - things like that..

*DISCLAIMER: I used alot of swap items to complete this book (which HELPED SOOO MUCH!!) There's a bunch that i used the 6x6 page swap from my SU group. That helped alot as well. I'm so grateful i had them. Made the book much quicker to finish..



TIA FOR LOOKEN.... This book meant alot to me and i know Sara will love and cherish it. That in itself makes me happy ;)

OMGoodness! WOW! Val, this is just fabulous!!!! I love it! You should be really really proud! It is an awesome album and I'm sure you both will treasure it for years to come. Also, I think you and your family are beautiful!! Such lovely smiles.

AND I really loved the one about "who would wear gucci camping." I can so relate! That would be me too! Well, maybe not Gucci, but def. I would be wearing and doing stuff you so should not be doing in that setting. I'm so girly girl and I've already told Brandon that when we start camping, I will bring a whole new art form to the word. Hee hee hee. ;)

Ahh you guys, y'll rawk!! :) *sigh* i can't believe how much she's grown!!! sad thing i only have a few pix of her when she was a baby.. but I know she'll love this,, especially since we're in dallas now. She's a lil homesick, but i know this will make her feel better.. :)

I kinda want to keep the book!!!! ROTFL! nah, i'll send it this week.. after i've written a letter to her. I know she'll love it. She really appreciates the SB and lil books i give her. She called me the other day and said she was looking at the book i made for her w/her and the boys.. lol - she said she loves looken at them when she misses her cousins. LOL

*sigh* :(

That's a lot of work! How long did it take you?
It came out really nice.
Actually, i started on it right before we moved.. then i continued after i got my SB room set up here in Dallas.. then i sorta worked on it on/off - so i guess it took me 3 mos to finish it. In my defense, i didn't work on it totally.. LOL you know, set it aside, two wks later come back to it..

I think gathering the pix took me the longest.. LOL Aside from that not to long to put the book - b/c i used alot of swap items.. Journaling.. naturally that takes the longest.. LOL but i journaled as i went along which i NEVER do. Journaling came pretty easy w/this book. :)

thanks for the kind words :)

Ahhh thanks!! :) :blush:

That was my first offical camping trip i made w/DH and his family. I must tell ya, he made me feel as comfy as i could be while camping. we took our laptop (LOL) to watch scarey movies - we had an airmattress w/feet - lol - so funny!!

re: Gucci - that was the first thing sara bought w/her settlement money. She loved those glasses - i knew a lady that worked at lenscrafters and she got them for sara at a discount!! Unfortunately someone stole her glasses from HER BACKPACK!!!!! :mad: she was so mad/sad:(

ahhh thanks! i guess that's why the journaling came so easily. It flowed!! I'm soooo stoked i used up the swap items!! I'm watching my swap items deplete and that's *ALWAYS* a good thing!! :)

wow Val what a wonderful job you have done, it is so nice. I know what you mean about not wanting to give it away, I have given a couple of completed albums away, but you become so attached to them, that you don't want to part with them. That just shows how much love you put into it and you did your best, and what a wonderful result. She will love it for sure. It looks fantastic
