Layout flashback:joshua's ultrasound

This is a layout from 5 years ago boy was I on a tight budget back then!
Actually I wasn't working and had just discovered this madness we call
scrapbooking I am so glad I made this one because I remember being so excited that
I was having a little boy ( I already had 2 girls)
Simple as this is . It reminds me of what I felt that day. Also I like those collage/artsy looking
layouts I think this is true to my personality  I am linking  with

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, 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.
