My birthday was yesterday, so I guess you can say that today I'm another year wiser. (It just sounds better than saying another year older.) I'm not a vain person at all. I hardly wear makeup, and you'll usually find me in jeans and a t-shirt. The only thing that's bothering me about this getting older business is the wrinkles. I have them under my eyes, and when I smile they pop up. I guess 35 is a good age for finding a decent wrinkle cream. Any suggestions? Until then, I suppose Photoshop will have to do.
I'm dropping by today to share two layouts. I made them with scraps from my Crate Paper Close Knit collection. I'm finally reaching the bottom of the barrel with that collection. Pretty soon, I'll be sharing a new set of pages.
I suppose it's fitting that I'm sharing a project with a picture of me at about five years old in the same post where I'm complaining about my wrinkles. (Thirty years ago?! Yikes.) The photo was taken when I met my little brother for the first time. He was tiny and I was convinced that we didn't need him because he was a boy. Luckily, they talked me in to keeping him. That's my grandfather in the photo with me, and he recently got out of the hospital after a fight with bacterial pneumonia. He's one of my favorite people in the world and it really scared me to see him so sick. I am beyond thankful that he's feeling better now.
This layout includes a picture of Brandon looking completely ticked off. He has never liked grass on his bare skin. Not as a baby, and not now. He would frown his little heart out any time I put him down on it. He didn't like sand either! All I wanted was a sweet photo. Now that he has his Autism diagnosis we know that he has sensory processing problems, and these moments make a lot more sense.
I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend, I'm off to work in a little while to sub for a friend who needed someone to go in for her. It'll be busy, but fun as always!
