Ok, girls. Mine is finally ready to meet the public.

Here's my Milestone. I scrapped a picture of my sister and me from this past October when we went to Italy. I've wanted to go to Italy for as long as I can remember. This trip was a major milestone for me. My first "real" trip out of the country (we went to Mexico on a day drive a long time ago, but we only were there for the afternoon). If a trip to Europe for a small town country girl from Oklahoma isn't a milestone, I'm not sure what is.


Some Memories ~*~Swirlydoos Ultimate Design Challenge~*~






Pat this page is STUNNING!!! I think that challenge really did something as this is an amazing page- love all the layers & details- I just stared at is for awhile when it came up. Love that about your photo pose- how fun. Would love to see when you do the then & now page.

Thanks, Char. I really did have a lot of fun doing it, but it WAS a challenge, no question.

I'll be looking forward to next month's projects!

Monique, that page was very inspiring. I think I might do something similar one of these days.

Got to get my swaps completed so I can focus on this page, I know what I want to do, but also a little anxious about the topic.




Thanks. Can't wait to see what you come up w/. I don't like opening up an feeling vulnerable, but I felt it was time. We're going to be moving soon (leaving Florida, heading to Maine) and I'm trying to come up w/ ways to let the past go. It's driving me nuts.

Faithscrapper, love your idea of the hidden journaling in the chimney.

not sure if i can still participate so i'm going to submit an entry and if you are already closed then you can all just enjoy.

My milestone was my son being born at 29 weeks by emergency c-section. He was born at 311pm and because of the amount of medication I was on i was not allowed to see him on his "birth" day. It was not until the next mid morning that I was allowed to see him (I had to get the doctor's approval to leave my room). I then had to get the introductions to the NICU before I could even enter my son's pod room. My mom wheeled me over to his bed where I sat staring at him (so small in his incubator). When the nurse asked if I wanted to hold him I couldn't stop crying. After I stopped crying, the nurse got Kyle out of the incubator and placed him in my arms. This picture was taken right after the nurse stepped away:

That's amazing Becky- what a wonderful story- what a wonderful photo to have. I have no photos of me holding my son until a couple weeks later. Precious memories

We've had 16 submissions so far - awesome job everyone.

We'll accept milestone pages up until Thursday the 31st- then we'll officially open the February BOM challenge. I am working that up & it will hopefully be ready to post tonight so you can start those creative gears turning

and another one, reflecting on the day my son was moved from his toaster (aka incubator) to his big boy bed (aka the bucket):

Hi everyone, unfornately due to time commitments I won't be able to add a layout for this challenge this month even though I know what I want to do time has just gotten away with me. Two of my girls head back to school tomorrow after having 6 weeks off for summer hols and I have been covering books instead of doing layouts this week. I hope to be able to participate next month when things aren't so crazy

I completely understand Michelle - you are still welcome to share the Milestone LO on the new thread should you decide to still do it

Becky- those are great milestones- everything about a child changes our lives

I have finally been able to work on my milestone. It was supposed to be a 2 page layout, for 2 parts to the milestone, but it looks like I might only complete 1 by the deadline. I scrap ooooh soooo slowly. It's curious timing, as the anniversary is rolling around on Saturday. Hmm. I plan on working on it all day, I am still going to try and get both accomplished But at least I should have a picture of the first one later this evening. My first LO for a scrapbook about ME. yay!
