seriously. FIVE years ago? they are old enough to have not been BABIES five years ago?? it kind of boggles the mind, doesn't it?
it was my turn to do a weekly challenge on the studio calico blog, and i honestly had no clue what i wanted to do. i decided to start with a photo and then figure it out from there - but i was having trouble finding something i wanted to scrap! i decided to hit my OLD photo files - and thought it would be fun to see what we were doing in past februarys. i found this one. back when the bigs were the only two. back when they weren't so big. ben is younger than sam is now! love. printed them immediately. total rush of emotion seeing those little faces. and giggles remembering them going around and around the house in circles on this car. i think i need to add some additional journaling to the back or as a facing page - i honestly couldn't process through all my thoughts well enough to get them on paper.
so this week's challenge = same month, different year. there's a $5 gc to studio calico up for grabs - check out the blog post for all the details. i'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does!
happy monday, friends! i'm crossing my fingers for a normal week. no holidays. no snow days. no sickies. no travel. we haven't had one of those since before christmas, and i need it!! i'm still trying to dig my way out of the mess on my desk - i scrapped on the floor this weekend. totally motivated by becky's studio revamp & craving PINK walls. i don't suppose that will go over well here. ;) i'm plugging away on project life, too - i'll be sharing that later this week.
