layout flashback :It's not about the embellishments
Boy I must have just discovered "thickers"! I was looking through my old layouts when
I ran across this one I made it about 18 months ago I really wanted to stick with my less is more approach. I remember being
frustrated with myself for adding the blue ribbon! Which is hilarous to me now because I realize that I lost sight of the reasons
why I scrapbook in the first place. Besides my immediate family .I am so blessed to meet a few people who will alter my
prespective about life , remind me that there really are good people in the world and make me want to be a better person. My friendship with Kelvin (and Lori G.) is like that. These are the few people you meet who will change your life forever( IN a good way of course). I really dont have all the words to describe what they mean to me but I am so glad I took
time to celebrate and honor my friendships.
About This blog
My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
