I just cannot believe that exactly 6 years ago to the exact day of the week, we became a family of three. It has been an emotional few weeks for us all as I am recreating the memories of our journey to our daughter. Ever since I discovered pocket pages, I have wanted to re-do our album. It has stirred up so many different emotions. All of us have been effected by it. Emma has gotten a little more clingy, and Dennis and I have teared up a little, and I have eaten an entire bag of Cape Cod chips. From my daughter being in an orphanage for a year, to my Mom's passing making is possible to adopt using my inheritance, and to our very long wait for her, and every other emotion in between.
And I think since creating the album falls on our anniversary, makes it even more sensitive. This album is my heart, the reason why I scrapbook. Even though it has been emotional to do, it has recharged my creativity and love for the hobby.
I am so thrilled to bring this album and our story to a class at Big Pictures Classes in the Fall. I have gotten creative in so many ways and cannot wait to share. If you haven't joined Big Picture Classes, it is $9.95 a month and you can take as many classes as you like. It is such an amazing price and concept. You are getting such great information and a place for community. Here is my code BPCPATRICIA It is good through August 5th*
Today we will celebrate being together, eating Chinese food, dessert (chocolate, of course, because that is my daughter's favorite), and being thankful and amazed at how lucky and blessed we are to be together.*Free month trial promotion ends August 5th, 2015 at 11:59 pm EST.
