Peter's Smile

I babysat my grandson yesterday so was unable to get into the craft room. Sadly, I do not have a stocked up supply of cards to rely on when this happens. I do, however, have about 10 scrapbook pages I made quite a while ago that I can share with you. Of course, since I have only made about 10, this is one of the first ones I made, like the one I showed you the other day.

This layout is of my son Peter. I am proud of all my kids :o) But Peter did not smile a lot. He is such a serious guy, even back then. His smile always warmed my heart so I made a layout of his smile.

Here is the first page of the layout. Starting when Peter was a baby and as he grew a bit older. What a fun way to greet us in the moring!

Back then, I had very few paper crafting items, which were pretty much from Stampin' UP. I had to handwrite the notes and the title, but have read that this makes scrapbook pages special to the kids when they look back at the memories. I know it would make things special to me if I were to look a pages my grandparents made before they passed away. So, I used my not so great writing.

Here is the 2nd page. He has grown to be a wondeful and couragious man.

All in all, I don't think I would change a thing on this layout. To me, the pictures and memories make it wonderful.

Thank you for stopping by and allowing me to share Peter's smile with you :o)

These Lo's are great Sandy. I really like how you use your own handwriting for journaling. Something I wish I did more of but I hate my writing. Your family will be able to look back and see your feelings in your own hand. Very cool! BTW, Happy Mother's Day!
