OK--I have been scrapping my head off since almost my entire family is gone. I just did this layout a few minutes ago. Most of the time I like my layouts--some of the time I hate them--but every so often on a rare occasion I am absolutely thrilled and excited and totally happy with a layout. This occurred with this layout above! Not exactly sure why I love it--maybe because that picture of haley is too darn cute. maybe it's because I had ONE blue flower that totally worked. maybe it's because i got to use the stamped-by-kerry flower in the center of that. who knows why--but I love it!
You know being a wife and mom is hard work. seriously hard. a lot of the time it is unappreciated and goes unnoticed. then the bad day, week, month hits and you just want to run away from it all. not all the time, but occasionally. my kids know when this is happening because they ask me if I'm running off to Mexico when i start to get cranky. cuz I always threaten it! I tell David--If I'm gone one day don't worry--I'll be back in a week. well, i miss my family. i started to miss them yesterday as a matter of fact. I have enjoyed my alone time with Haley (on a side note let's just say I am no polly pocket fan and would someone hit me if i buy more of them) but i can't wait for them to come home. don't know what it is with a family--the people that can drive you absolutely mad are the ones that you can't live without...L
