With four sons running around it can be easy for me to get distracted and think of them as a whole instead of individually. Creating this file was time I needed to focus on the traits of just one. The twins get lumped together so much more than they should so I chose to do an album for each of them. I let them pick the folder and papers I would use — it’s funny, they chose the the same folder and completely different papers. That sums Graham & Matthias up in a nutshell. They’ve SO loved looking at them. And I confess — a bit of the journaling brought tears to my eyes. This has me striving to slow down and be more conscious of each child as an individual.
- warning: lots of pictures. lots.
Look! I even broke out the sewing machine.
This another one of the projects from the Heidi Swapp class that I took. I love all the little pockets and mini albums within the project. And wait for it ——- 33 pictures! Yes. You read right. THIRTY-THREE! And truth be told, probably all pictures I may not have scrapped alone because I am so behind. I chose pictures of him that I love for different reasons, ones that totally tell the story of who Graham is. This memory file makes my heart sing!
I love this metal word — it’s a bookmark from Hallmark’s old Product (Red) line.
And so the story of my sweet baby B is told — my laid back, attention to detail, striving to be different, quality time, easy to love boy.
File #2 coming soon ….
