So over at PCP and also on Melanie Muenchinger's blog she had a challenge using hands or like a sentimental moment. So I love these pictures I took years ago and I had did a page many moons ago using these pictures for Stampin' Up! but I never recreated the page for me. So I dug up the pictures and made up this page. What sucks is the date on the pictures is not right, (you can't see them that much here, but you can in real life) the button on the camera was pushed and was on all my pictures and I did not know till the pictures were developed, cause these are "real honest to goodness" 35 mm pictures. Remember those cameras?
So I will admit I am not much of a scrapbooker, I am more of a card maker. I love in the picture it shows Granny's rings, cause she wears Poppa's wedding ring on her hand with her wedding band, and she has ever since he passed away.

So today was Eric's Graduation day, there were a few tears shed let me tell you that, Eric's teacher has had him since he was 8 or 9, and she was pretty teary eyed too. I could not get over how grown up all the other kids are getting too. Some of the kids (or should I be saying young adults) will be working with Eric so that will be nice to have a familiar face there with him.
Tomorrow is my Big Shot class and I told you that I would show you one of the projects that the class attendees would be making.
Isn't he cute, this uses a bunch of dies, and punches. I saw this over on my girlfriend Cindy's blog, and she saw it here, and well this is my version. My eyes are way bigger and does that him wiser? Who knows, it does make him look sadder….I also took my snips and cut a few lines on the going gray belly scallop circle to make it be kinda feathery. And that textured paper…ahhh….you can't beat it!
I think everyone will like him, I best get off here and finish up…not much got done today. No work, just lots of memory making.
Have a great Saturday and thanks for stopping in!
I love that page!!! And I can just imagine what dad is saying…..why the heck does she want me to take pictures of their hands??
The little owl dude is sooooo cute too! He does look very wise, but also very sad. Maybe he is sad cause Eric is growing up and spreading his wings a bit more!
Beautiful page! The story is fantastic.

I love this layout!! I worked in an assisted living center for 8 years and saw many little hands like these, so full of love….
My question tho is if Dad is taking the picture of all your hands, who is taking the picture of dad taking the picture??? lol
