Back Home

I spent a wonderful month with my new grandson, Max, and his mom and dad.  Now I'm back home trying to get back into my "artsy" self. 

I didn't journal in the new scrappy journal I made in December until I got home.  I spent a few days fiddling around with it: journaling, selecting photos, reminiscing those lovely times of holding that baby and gazing into his beautiful face.  Here are some pages.





I'll be adding to the journal as the little fella grows.  I have plans to make a baby quilted portrait after I finish up this year's valentines.  I rather excited to get started!

Hi Diane, I'm a first time visitor via the ROtD group too - love what you have done to make such a tactile, and baby soft commemorative of your grandson. Great use of the journals! I also live in Florida, by the way.
