Brooklyn, Brooklyn

Here is my sweet grand daughter Brooklyn.  When I look at this scrapbook page I get the warm fuzzies.  It makes me think of our precious girl, who now has hair down to her waist and is 3 years old.  Makes me sad when I realize this might be the last scrapbook page I actually created!!  I wish I loved scrapping the way I love card making!  A card is a wonderful thing and can bless a heart.....but a scrapbook page takes you back, back to two and a half years ago when Baby Brooklyn charmed her way into our lives, and this picture captures a bit of that magical time.  If I had more hours in the day I would create more scrapbook pages.  I used to do more.....but time is always the sna-foo.  So I will shortly have TWO MORE darling grand children to scrap.  Anybody wondering out there what our two newest grand children ARE? Well, we are being blessed with our first ever grand son, along with another darling grand daughter....yes, Brian and Bethany are having one of each.  MAGICAL.  And they will have sweet personalities all their own, just like Brooklyn Sophia.....and our hearts are opening even a bit wider to welcome these two new wee ones,,,,and we will hold them and hug them and love them and wonder how we could feel all this love for someone we didn't know yesterday.......It's properly called, a blessed event, when miracle like a baby(babies) is sent, For a child's arrival is God's invasion, Love's renewal, and a JOY CELEBRATION, Trees clap their hands when a baby is born, and night sorrow exits on the wings of the morn.....Hope and gladness betrothed, going dancing thru the earth, and faith and love embrace, when a mother gives birth.........I can't wait to hold these two precious children and sing them lullabies......Until next time, Karen

Grandchildren are the BEST. I had two girls and now have 4 grandsons and 1 grand-daughter. They are all unique and we are blessed to have them in our lives. Enjoy. I know you will.

Best Wishes in the anticipation and arrival of those new grandchildren. They are certainly blessings from God. I have 7 (ages 11 down to 10 mo. and each is special in his/her own way). Enjoy those babes! And I have a 3 yr old Brooklyn also--the scrapbook page of your Brooklyn is beautiful!

This has to be the sweetest SB page I have ever seen. I'm sure the subject matter has a lot to do with it, but even so, the colors, the layout and the embellishments just make it sing!

What a sweet page with a sweet subject! The colors, the layout, everything - just perfect.

Karen, You said it all. Your darling sweet granddaughter is so precious. I know the feeling you have knowing your getting twins. Christina and Rachael are 17 1/2 now,... our adopted twins, Olivia and Ava are almost 3 years old. That makes 16 Grandchildren so far, 5 great grandchildren and one on the way in February of 2013. My daughter keeps up with pictures in a digital scrapbook for me for gifts. I appreciate them more than anything else.
Your scrapbook page is gorgeous as all your cards. Your so blessed, ♥

I know what you mean about scrapboooking and cardmaking. Grandkids are your heart. You may not have a scrapbook of the moments, but that dosen't mean you can revisit them without opening up a book of photos. Cards are a hobby you love to do.

I was reading again today the post that you had written about your daughter going to hear their heartbeats and how you encouraged her to keep on believing, etc.(The one with the card with the bird in the nest). What you wrote that day was so touching and so encouraging. Today's was so sweet, again. I got tears in my eyes reading your poem at the end. Your grandchildren are and will be a blessing to you, and you are a blessing to me!
