Be Loved | 1962 Mom & Dad moving from Munich to the USA (Nancie Rowe Janitz)

Did I mention I joined Nancie Rowe Janitz' creative team?! Fun stuff!

FYI ... this amazing photo was taken in Munich in 1962 ... it's my Mom and Dad as they were readying to go to the airport for their move to the USA. I just love it!

Photoshoot with the girls ... LOVE THESE GIRLS!

Selfies - Right Side

I made a page earlier this week of a selfie my daughter and I took in the car on a way to a family dinner. I had so many other adorable photos of her that I just couldn't bear to include them in the album, so I decided to make another coordinating page.

 The first page I made:

1. Sabrina's Creations: In the Making
2. Robyn Meierotto: In Stitches

Love x2

Hmmm. I just scrapped this page tonight. I went to save it with the rest of my 2015 scrapbook pages and noticed that I'd already scrapped the very same pictures. Oh well, I'll have two pages is by side. They're both completely different so why not? I thought I'd share them with you side by side - just for fun!
