Well yesterday I made it into my scrap room and actually completed a layout from start to finish....that sooo never happens with me! I have to admit, there are days when being unemployed is rather nice, and if I want to spend the day scrapping I can...provided I can pull myself away from the computer.

Reunited is a very personal layout for's all about our move to Pennsylvania and all of the things that had to happen/change in order for the move to even take place....there is lots of journaling, that I printed out and attached to the back of the layout.

Journaling on the front reads:
Three very long weeks
anticipation building
waving and running towards me
tears of joy - reunited again!

The journaling on the back reads:
Three weeks is what it all boils down too…every three weeks we get to see one another. Today was that day! Mommy hasn’t hugged you or seen you in three weeks and today we were driving to Fredericksburg, Virginia to meet your daddy half way and to pick you up for the week…a five hour trip (holiday weekend/one way) turned into over seven hours. It took us over two and a half hours just to go the final thirty-five miles…but the anticipation of seeing your cute little smile and squeezing you tightly was soooo very worth it. You and your dad had arrived about an hour prior to us and when we pulled into the rest area and I saw you waving and running towards me, I had tears rolling down my face. I was soooo happy at that very moment! I love you Garrett! And I missed you soooo much!
