Wish you were here album!

Good morning! How are you today? I may have mentioned that my mom is here visiting from Alaska! It has been 3 years since she has been down for a visit! We are having a blast! Her hubby stayed behind to keep things at home running smoothly so my kids and I decided to make him a "Wish You Were Here" album to both journal mom's trip and to keep him included in the fun! We took his picture and mounted it and turned it into a flat traveler! This way he gets to be in pictures and go places with us! I am making a 6 x 6 album to hold all of the pictures and will send it back with my mom for him! I wanted to share the first three pages we made with you! This is the cover, the first page and the last page with a pocket to hold his picture! Hope he likes it!


Grampaw is spelled that way intentionally! That is the way he has spelled it since he adopted my kids! :) Sentimental! :)


This was a shot of my kids waiting for my mom at the airport! I took three of her coming down the hallway, but they were all too blurry to use!


We sprinkled each of the snowflakes with Dazzling Diamonds, but it is hard to see in the photo! Preeeeetty!


Ok, we are off to our home schooling meeting now! Have a great day! I will be back soonest!

This is awesome... I totally love the idea... putting it in the back of my brain ... I'm sure I'll use it sometime.. the idea... not the brain! ;-)

How beautiful. What a great heartfelt gift. I haven't seen my mom in 3 years either. One more and we will be home to see her. She has never layed eyes on Leila...I know it's killing her! I hope you are having a wonderful visit with your family!
