Getting a head start....

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been away for a few days. We've been super busy. My grandmother died last Friday and the funeral was yesterday. She was 89 and had Alzheimer's for 10 years. I think she suffered long enough and is now in peace. Anyone who has relatives with Alzheimer's probably knows what I'm talking about. It's an atrocious disease that I wish nobody should have to deal with.

But now, I'm back up for some blogging. Sometimes we just need a little break but I thank you for coming back to see what's new!

I've been a little uncertain weather this baby is a girl or a boy...even though the ultrasound showed a girl. Must be nerves or something because I have bedding bought, new little outfits hung in the closet, and a pink baby papasan chair waiting for a little girl. I'm not washing anything or taking tags off until she's here! But I'm making some girlie scrapbook pages ahead of time anyway.

I scrapbook in 12x12 format because if I need a ton of pictures on a page I have the option to do so. I love the look of 8x8 albums, and may do a theme album someday. I don't have a baby album purchased yet, but I'm doing some research. I found this site that embosses on almost any album: Accent Albums. I had this done with my daughter's baby album (which is the Creative Memories baby booties album, and is retired and is available on eBay for over $50!) but I'm still looking for an album that I like. I am not willing to spend that much money on an album and I think it will be OK if they don't match anyway. Anyone have any good ideas for high quality albums that would work for me? I like SU's albums, but we're limited on colors. I'm thinking pink or blue if it's a boy.

Back to this page: I used Chocolate Chip CS, Flowers for You DP, and a 3-D sticker from Me & My Big Ideas from Michael's. SUPER simple and it just waits for a 5x7 photo to take center stage on this page.

So sorry to hear about your grandmother .... my grandfather died of Alzheimers too. It's tough on a family to see them go through that. Prayer to you and your family.

Very very cute scrapbook page!

Sorry to hear about your Grandmother. My mother was diagnoised at the age of 48. She is one of the youngest. She is been in a nursing home for the last 7 years. It is a very hard disease to deal with. My mother hasn't known me for the last 7 years and that is hard. Hopefully someday they will come up with a cure.

Your scrapbook page is so cute. TFS!
