It's her birthday!

This angel, this little girl, just turned 10 today. It's hard to believe that 10 years has gone by as quickly as it has. I'm bracing myself for the next 10 and will do my best to hold on to each and every little moment for as long as I can. And I will certainly work on capturing and preserving the moments like the one below...

The annual Sandwich Fair! It wouldn't be autumn in NH without it :)

For My Mom :)

This is it. The project is finally done. Though it's just a little book it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and my heart.

This is the first project I've made that's all about my Mom. She died 17 years ago when I was 17 years old. That's a long time. It's a lot of grieving, a lot of tears, a lot of anger. It's also a lot of growing and living too. This little book is something that reminds me of some of the "little things" about my Mom that made her who she was. I'm also reminded that this is the reason I love scrap booking. It can be so therapeutic and preserve so much...even the "little things".

All the patterned paper used is from the Basic Grey Porcelain Collection.
