Happy Birthday Scrapbook Page

This page is based on a PageMaps sketch that was posted on ScrapCity for a sketch challenge.


I used Basic Grey papers and alphabet stickers. The journaling card is 7 Gypsies, I stamped some Stampin' Up stamps, and added some birthday-themed buttons. What is it about seeing photos of my husband and my girls? It just makes my heart melt! I love it!

I forgot to mention yesterday that it was Princess' birthday! She's 3 years old now. (My husband thinks I'm crazy with the dog, but I can't help it!) My youngest had her last band concert of the year last night, and my oldest has her last band concert of the school year tonight. The band director that both of my girls just LOVE is retiring after 36 years with the school district! He's wonderful, and we're going to miss him very much. Tonight is officially THE last time he's directing a concert with the school, and it will be a packed house. Last night was very sad, and tonight is guaranteed to be much worse. He's getting a much-deserved retirement, but he has been such a positive influence on my girls and their music / singing, that I don't want their interaction with him to end. We'll miss you Mr. Lamb!!

I tried to do some blog hopping yesterday, but something is definitely going on with our Internet connection around here. We need to place some calls and figure it out, because it's so frustrating! I was able to look around, but loading the "comments" page was taking FOREVER! Chances are, I stopped by to see what you've been up to, but didn't leave a comment because it was taking too long. I hope everything speeds up again very soon! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Love the pictures of Dad with his girls.

I have been having problems getting blogs to load and leaving comments. Think there may be a problem with blogspot's server.
