Layout #3 for SCRAPFIT Challenge #19
This layout was not only done with old left-over items, it is an old picture. It is a picture of my family from 1998 and one of the last photos ever taken of my Dad. The sister's tiny little baby in the picture is now 12 years old and my son, standing between my husband and me is now 23 years old and stands about 6'4" tall! This is the only copy of the picture I have since we didn't have digital cameras back in 1998, or at least I didn't have one. I don't even have the negative because it was taken with my sister's camera. To be honest, I had a very hard time scrapping this picture. It is the first picture I have been able to scrap of my Dad since he passed away. I've wanted to, I just wasn't able to. It was extremely emtional, I looked at the picture for a very long time before I adhered it to the page. I don't know that I did it justice, but you can actually lift the picture up for my journaling, which is way to personal to show. I think I need to write a note to my friend Cristal at http://dirtyscraps.blogspot.com/ and let her know that I finally "understand" DIRTY scrapbooking. Scrapbooking isn't always easy.
My name is Karen Harrington and my husband Bill and I have been married almost 29 years and live in Hoover, Alabama. We are proud parents of one son who like me, he wants to make this world a better place, so he has joined the Anniston Police Department. For my part, I teach pre-school at a VERY large, local Baptist Church. My goal in teaching is to show my students that everyone is an individual and it is okay to be the way the Lord made you. Be comfortable and happy with who you are.
