Morning Ladies

DaNel I have found that sticking mine to the wall with some of that blue putty like stuff that peels right off and taking the photo straight on worrks pretty well.

jci

A couple of people commented on my lo about how lucky I was still to have some originals from the hospital. Somehow I have to go back and add something I dropped and forgot about... the little florist envelope addressed to "Mommy" from my two older sisters! And the only reason I'm so "lucky" to have all this is because I took it back in the 70's when my mom was getting sick and my sister started hoarding all the pictures. I wish I knew who had my grandmother's scrap book. She used to save news paper clippings and had a couple pictures of me when I made it in the local paper. (once for Marching band, another time playing basketball at the rec park recently built when I was in hs) One of the reasons this BOM is important to me is because my mother passed away after a long illness when I was 15. Her mother had passed away before I was born, so no one to fill in on all those missing pieces.

I scrap mostly my daughter and she gets so mad at me. I tell her I'm not putting it together for her, they're my memories that I want to share with her kids and that's why when there are challenges, I scrap the doubles, because she WILL give me more than one grandbaby! (she'll only be 15 in Oct) and each kid will get a scrap book of their mom.

I can't imagine coming from a home with 7 siblings I am an only child and always wanted brothers and sister.....I have 2 half brothers but they were born when I was grown and we never lived together.....I have always envied people who have large families.....I love the way my kids all have a bond together that no one else has with them....their little secrets and all the things they laugh about....they way they love each other just seems like such an amazing gift!!!

Here is my first page. I also did it for the weekly 1 sketch for September.

I ended up with a baby photo and a wedding photo.

I doodled in the flourishes with silver.

Sometimes I feel bad for my daughter. She never met her father and she had been trying to search for her half brother and sister since she was around 10. She never told me, so last year, luckily I knew her sister's and the mom's name, so we searched on line for the mom. Her dad had lived in WA and his ex wife had moved to Portland, OR. We found her on Facebook. My daughter wrote to her and that afternoon, she wrote back and told her she would hear from her sister, Kay that evening. Sure enough and she wrote back and they keep in touch through FB. Turns out her sister didn't know anything about her other than having the pictures I had sent to her father up until she was 4. That's when he got remarried and moved and I never sent him anything. I guess after that, the new wife was jealous of the daughter and ex and out of spite, would send pictures of my daughter to her, she gave them to her daughter and she kept them all these years! Every now and then I get peak on my daughter's facebook and I see her sister giving her advice or they talk like sisters. I got tears in my eyes, I can't type any more and I'm going to be late to my friends house.. bye!

I had to block my oldest sister. She's such an *&% She would be talking garbage on her wall about all the nieces and nephews. She is on a mental health disability and uses as an excuse and crutch for everything. Her life is FB. I shouldn't talk too badly.. sb.com lately is my addiction!!
