the truth…

…about why this photo wasn’t scrapped years ago…

{I shared this project on the doodlebug blog recently and thought I’d add it to my personal blog as well…}

"I've had this photo from Mother's Day 2006 just sitting in my photo album. I was hesitant to scrapbook it...because I guess I'm vain. ;) I know I do not look great in this photo. I look like I hadn't had time to get my hair colored in months. I look pale. I look exhausted. I was. Plain and Simple. But look at those cute kids! I love them so much and I am so grateful for them. And because of that, I chose to set aside my vanity and create a page to celebrate each of them and the opportunity I get each year to celebrate the blessing it is to be their mother - I am so blessed to have them in my life each and every day! :)


And while I had all of my fun “flower box” supplies out, I created this little gift bag topper too!

  1. Kudos to your honesty and especially your heart. We moms put our kids first and this page is showing exactly why we scrapbook. Love it!

  2. I find that the older I get, the more I like myself, too. (and the more I can cut myself some slack!) Great post. :)
