TGF Heart Journal--week 8

Hi!  It is week 8 (wow, 2 months now) of TGF's Heart Journaling and we're still keeping up.  The concept is to use one word as the focal point. 


So this is my layout inspired by the significance of today.  I watercolored the background with blues and black.  And painted the word remember.  I added some journaling of what I remember from 10 years ago.  Ten years ago, I was 36 weeks pregnant with my first baby.  It was almost my last day of work before my one year leave of absence.  One of the schools I worked at was on the Marine Corp Base and I was to be there that morning to meet my supervisor.  Of course that meeting didn't happen because the school was closed and security tight.  I didn't even try to get on base that day.  The next day was my baby shower.  A co-worker asked me what kind of world I was bringing my baby into.  I really didn't know what to say. 

Here is my daughter's layout.  She was the one in my belly 10 year ago.  Her layout is so bright as always and optimistic.  She didn't know what word to focus on but finally chose love.  It's so fitting too for this day, isn't it?

Thanks for reading.

Argh - this is like my 5th attempt at commenting. Blogger just won't let me comment on 1/2 of the blogs out there.

These are pretty! Love both color schemes and your daughter's is so cute!
