Isn't this little boy just adorable? Don't you just want to pick him and give him a great big hug? This is my all-grown up Shane when he was just 5 years old. One of our favorite places to visit was Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. Shane especially loved the spring gardens, and that's what we were looking at in these pictures.
Now I know all too many moms that will not scrapbook their sons in "girl" colors. That has never been a problem for me. There are so many colors and patterns out there. I just can't see limiting all of Shane's pages to "boy" colors. For this layout, I used the Melody Ross Homespun Chic line. There a touch of sewing on this layout as well.
I have been scrapping a lot the past few days, but I only share a small portion. Usually all of my layouts go right in a book and at that point, I have surrendered them. Do you know what I mean? Scrapbooks are not just for us. They are for our future generations, and when I create pages, I am thinking of Shane and all the lovely children that I am believing will follow him. Scrapbooking is truly in the soul, I think. Yes, some of our pages are artwork from deep within us - paper crafting at it's best. But more to the point, it's what we record in pictures and in journaling that is important. Because then we've taken what's in our soul and made it our legacy. I'll take that over money anyday.
