This is my page for this week's scrapbook sketch and theme challenges. For the SBSC100, Becky Fleck designed our sketch for the week! How cool! I love this sketch. I really like the nine circle elements on the sketch. Some of my cirlces are chipboard pieces covered in patterned paper. The others are punched circles that I stamped on.
This week's theme challenge was to create a layout about something dramatic. I decided to scrapbook about the "dramatic" events that are going on in my life right now. TOMORROW I am having a c-section for our second baby! Yes, TOMORROW! Kinda wierd! I am having all these bittersweet thoughts lately.....I'm so stinkin' excited to have this baby, but also I've been thinking a lot about how it will impact our 3 year old son and what the next few months will be like with him and a baby. I think it will be good, but I wanted to get these thoughts down on a page. The journaling reads:
"This is a picture of you as an only child. Today is the last day of your life that you will be an only child! Man, I love every minute of being your Mama. You are one amazing boy. You inspire me and you challenge me. You make me laugh. You have added a ton of joy to my world. I love watching you be uniquely you.
I know that the next few months might be frusterating for you. I will be tired. Daddy will be tired. There will be lots of crying from the baby. I will be a little preoccupied with taking care of a newborn. I cannot wait to watch you be a big brother! You are gentle, sweet, and observant and I know you will be so helpful with your new brother or sister. I promise that I will still make time to play with you outside, read your favorite books, play cars, and create art. We'll make it through these next few months together! I love you, buddy. 7/22/07"
