Just Us

My husband just returned from a week long golf trip in North Carolina. Needless to say, I was happy to see him! We were lounging on the couch, catching up with each other, when - in true Jaxon fashion - our puppy climbed up on the back of the couch and belly flopped between us! I know he missed Dave as much as I did (maybe even more!).

The main reason I scrapbook, is to chronicle our everyday life - all these memories I don't want to forget. As we discussed plans for our family's future, I was thinking in that moment that I wanted to remember what it was like when it was "just us". When our 4 legged son was the center of our home life.

So, using My Minds Eye's sketch, "I remember" prompt and the Be Loved collection - I made this layout 2 days later.


I used red floss to stitch the title and the buttons, and a teal floss for the lines around the photos. I also printed the photos in Sepia tone for a softer feel :)

Thanks for looking! TGIF! :)
