One of the things I was looking forward to while my hubby was gone was getting some crafting time. With my son home sick for 2 days, this just hasn't happen. So this morning, I declared a little Mama Sanity time!
I've had these photos sitting on my craft table for a few months. I keep trying to fit these into different sketches, but nothing worked. So today, I just went for it! I'm still working on my confidence of doing pages without the safety net of a sketch. In the end, I'm happy with how this came out. The hardest thing for me was to incorporate a signed picture of Fredbird that my son received on a visit from Fredbird to his preschool. So I gave up trying to put it on the page, and "hid" it on the envelope behind the picture of my hubby and son with the Cardinals' mascot. I will also be putting more journaling in the envelope, including how Fredbird "dissed" me because I was wearing a Dodger shirt (in the most funny way possible!).
I am still hoping to sneak a little more craft time in tonight. I still have some projects I want to finish around the house before hubby gets back from his trip.
