Our New Life

Hello and Happy Memorial Day to you :) I hope that the day has treated you well? I got some bulbs at Lowes on sale and planted those, we have been listening to the top 500 on our favorite radio station, we have been enjoying new meals with Dave using his smoker and enjoying the weekend. We didn't for get the reason for this weekend and always facebook a post today thanking those that have sacrificed so much for my freedoms, I have many in my family that have done their duty. Thank you always :)
So this layout is based off of LOAD516 Day 19: My Fave and the prompt was a memory to treasure. I was so glad to get this memory down on a layout :) and need to do more of these of my kids while I can remember just a bit of it yet, but this one was my first child and it seems that for me I remember that about as vivid as the day it took place.
My story as I remember the day my 1st born child was born. Some old photos :) 1979 was the year.
I used the sketch over at Memory Nest for my layout, sketch #60
This was a fun sketch to do :) It's been a great month of sketches all over the blog sites :)
Photo of Carl and I thinking maybe Easter time, that is when they would have these types of portrait packages for sale. I used my current counterfeit kit Sunny Breeze for the layout with some extra old theme stashed pulled in to finish off the layout. Thank you for stopping by and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world.


  1. Wonderful photos and wonderful page. Love how you've used one of the sketch elements for extended journalling - you'll be so pleased about this when you look back in years to come. Thanks for using the sketch from The Memory Nest.

  2. How sweet! Great to get those photos out of storage and into a place of honor.

    BTW, we love our smoker, too. Add so much flavor!

  3. I can recall each of my daughter's births with such clarity- but forget so many of the other "big" things. This is a lovely documentation. Thanks for sharing with us at The Memory Nest.

  4. Wonderfully documented how you used that block for full on journaling...beautifully done. Thanks for joining in at THE MEMORY NEST!

  5. What a sweet page and fabulous memory to scrap!! Love how you used the sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at tMN!!
