Why do I scrap?

The kids are growing up so quickly. Where do the days go, the weeks, the months? Charlotte will be a year old in just a couple of weeks, and yet I feel that it was just yesterday that Matt and I left for the hospital in the wee hours of that steamy August morning, venturing out to meet our new little girl and introduce our son to his baby sister. My goodness - it feels as though we were just heading to the hospital on that snowy December morning to meet our Jackson, just after my water had broken as Matt was walking out the door for a business trip! The memories are so sweet, but I have to say that as time continues to march on, the distance of them really does sting a little. But it is this hobby - the process of documenting these stories through pictures and paper, with love's creativity - that gives me the assurance that the tender threads that tie me to these precious moments will never be broken!


And on that (sappy!) note, a couple of my new pages. I will be honest: I am so pleased with both of these. I feel like I'm settling into a groove when it comes to my own particular style, although no matter how hard I try I can't find a word for it? I keep thinking of the word "organic," because every single page I've done lately seems to have a life of its own!


Thanks so much for taking a peek. I always love for you to stop in and say howdy. :)

Amy, I just love your pages. You always show such emotion even in a few words. Your pages always have "just enough". It's so great that you've found your style.

I think "organic" is perfect for your style. I love both of these layouts Amy! I love your post as well. I remember checking into the hospital at midnight to be induced with Gabe just like it was yesterday. He will be 5 on Aug. 16, and Graedon will be 2 on Sept. 6. Time flies, and I hate how fast they are growing, but perserving our memories and moments through scrapping is what it is all about! We can relive it again and again.
