30 Years 1000 Words

Creating scrapbook pages helps me to keep my mind off of other things. Today I took our son Greg to the airport and I am sad, so I create and don't fret as much! This page features my nephew Brian at his 30th birthday party last summer. The digital elements, "Snap out of it" (2 Peas in a Bucket) were perfect elements. "A picture is worth 1000 words", and I added a few!

This is a layout I created 3 years ago when I left Greg at the airport. . . "pretty soon I'll be the one that's flying to see you". That will happen our next trip. . . for his marriage to Michelle in May!
I created the background to this one digitally.

Great layouts Cindy! I know the feeling of saying goodbye. Every time I leave my daughters house or she leaves here I cry..then go scrapbook.
