This is my last week as the guest design team member at Lasting Memories (insert frowny face here ). I have really enjoyed being challenged by the themes this month and want to thank Karen and Michelle for extending the offer. The theme today is the little things that matter most.
This past March my husband and I traveled up to the Midwest to be there for my granddaughter's birthday. She turned 7 on March 7th which made it her golden birthday and we wanted to celebrate with her. Abby's party was on Saturday and then to continue the celebration, she got to stay home from school on Monday. Dave and I picked her up bright and early and took her out to breakfast. The little diner had "birthday pancakes" on the menu so OF COURSE Abby ordered them. They came with a sweet glaze and TONS of sprinkles on them. They were pretty, fun and delicious! Abby loved them and I loved spending time with her one-on-one. After breakfast we took her shopping to Toys R Us and Wal-Mart where she got to spend her birthday cash and gift cards. Hopefully it is a day she will always remember. I remember the little things that my grandparents did with me as I was growing up and how they always made me feel special. The little things often to turn out to be the big things in life as we look back.
I used nearly all Doodlebug papers and embellishments for this page and this sketch by Brenda Ragsdale:
