capturing memories


Spoiler alert Joy...

I am making progress on my to do list and had to pop in and show you one of the things that I just crossed off of it.

A friend of mine just adopted a beautiful baby girl after two years (and many miracles) of fostering her.  She and her family are headed off to Disney World to celebrate and she was looking to make an autograph book to capture some of their memories in.

I love creating memory books and jumped at the chance to offer my services and make the book for her.

It's been a while since I made one and I had forgotten what a joy they are to put together.

You can tell by all the pictures that I am happy with the way it turned out. 

I hope she will be, too.

Better get back to my list.  Enjoy your Wednesday.  And if you read this far Joy, it will be in the mail tomorrow.

xo, Patty
