Hi all!! Well, I did it - he is at the airport and I am so very sad! But, I felt so comforted by all of your comments yesterday, you gals are just good for my soul!!! Thanks to all of you for thinking of me - I know Christmas will be here before I know it, and he will be home again! He is so grown up now, and I was afraid we would lose that closeness, but we are actually closer now and I just love it! That helps - and he also promised to call me as often as his schedule permits because "I love talking to you, mom!" - Ahhhh.....those are wonderful words for a mom to hear! So, it will be okay once I get back into my regular routine!! And, speaking of, it is Scrapbook Saturday again and today's page is one I did for a black and white layout challenge I issued over at the Coconuts site. Want to play along? Just go log in and Jen will set you up with your very own gallery - I would love to see what you all come up with! And, hey, there is candy at stake from ME - and it is always yummy *wink* So, this page uses the new line from Rusty Pickle Pop Star Collection and when I saw this, it had my son written all over it - LOL! The arrows are actually cut from another sheet of the same collection, and I just had a blast making this! And, the paper has blank lines on it so I just used them for my journaling - cool, huh?! This pic is of Tyler and Dexter(5 months) sitting on the front porch and it epitomizes the personality of my middle child! He is a big prankster, he is full of jokes and laughter, and he warms my heart with that smile! I knew when I saw this picture that I had to use it! The rub-ons are from Stampin' Up! as are the card stock, and the white buttons. Everything else is from my stash! So, are you up for it??? I hope so!! Until tomorrow - toodles!!
