Last Day of Free For Fall!!

Happy Friday to all you fabulous paper crafters out there! Thank you so much for playing with us at The Beary Scrap during the last challenge-- you have outdone yourselves with all the incredible entries and I have had so much fun visiting your blogs to look at your creative ideas. You have one more day to enter to our Free for Fall challenge so link up your project by clicking here for your chance to win!

Here is a teeny peek at my second Free for Fall project:

For a long time I have been wanting to make a layout with the chorus from a Trace Adkins song that I absolutely love-- it makes me tear up every time I hear it, which is usually in my car full of 3 busy kids as I'm driving them from one activity to the next and the words really hit home for me:

You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this

And so I finally decided this was the week and I made my layout on this song and our crazy busy life. Here is my two page layout, with pictures of kids' various activities this week.

A closer look at page 1, this page has the song lyrics down the right hand side along with a picture I took in my car looking at my kids in the rear view mirrow-- I saw this idea somewhere in a scrapbook magazine once and thought what a cool picture, as I so often see my kids that way as I peek in the mirror to see what chaos may be happening in the back seat!

Here is the second page, down the left hand side of this page is a list of all the things our days currently include (like school, homework, swim team, football practice, piano lessons, etc) and my feelings about the craziness:


Thanks for letting me share this layout with you, even if it's a little bit sappy! And don't forget to show us your projects!

Ah, Jamie, I'm all teary-eyed now! This is such a gorgeous layout. You have the perfect amount of clear "white space" to balance the chaos of everyday life. Wonderful.

I love the rear view mirror photo - what a great idea (although mine would be a lot furrier than yours... haha!).
