Today And Everyday

Melanie has a 'loving action' challenge up on the October Afternoon blog and I played along! I hope you will too! I wanted to post this yesterday but was exhausted when I get home from visiting my parents, meeting my nephew for the first time, playing with my 2 years old niece and talking non-stop with everyone! Ha!

Here my take on Melanie's challenge 

today and everyday

I decided to scrap this old photo of my girls, holding hands while watching TV. While they hold hands occasionally now, they certainly don't do it while watching TV! :D  I typed out my journaling and printed it straight onto the white cardstock. I cut strips of the Biography Patterned Paper from our Public Library collection and placed them as borders for my design. That paper is one of my favorite of all time, I think you can tell if you have been following my work for some time. I then embellished my layout with a star chipboardpop drops, an ampersand sticker from this sheet and I added my girls' initials using this adorable Strawberry Ice Cream Alphas What a wonderful challenge Melanie! Thank you for the nudge to scrap this photo! :)

And oh, that nephew I was talking about? Here he is. The name is Afzan Zhafri, 24 days old and already breaking hearts. :) You'll be seeing him on my pages I'm sure.

23 days old. Introducing my brand new nephew, Afzan Zhafri. 💘 #afzanzhafri
