Strength in Family and Friends

I can't believe it's Thursday already! YAAAY! Tonight, I finished the baby scrapbook (whew)! I took some photos of it, but they're not too great. I'll share them with you this weekend. The scrapbook is very simple and basic. When I make scrapbooks without the photos, it is very limiting because I can't embellish areas of the page that I might if I had the photo to to add to the page. Regardless, it's a great idea for a new mom who does not have time to make a scrapbook. Here's a special, handmade one in an instant (well, for her it will be an instant - for me it took 4 nights)! I'm just glad I chose to do an 8x8 book and not anything larger.

Anyway, today's card is a sympathy card and uses the pleated trim I bought in NYC a couple of weekends ago. Man, I love NYC and can't wait to visit again. I just can't get enough of that City. There are so many new things to see and do every visit.

I hope each of you find strenth in family and friends because that's priceless and something you can't buy in NYC! :) Thanks for stopping by and have a throwback Thursday (whatever that means)!
