Words to live by album

Embrace, all of it. Whenever I can. Even though I'm not a sports gal, I still embrace life in my own way. So glad I was able to use the acrylic letters on this page.
That moment in time when your soul finds it's mate. It flutters, it tries to deny but knows there's no use, and finally conceeds. Then uses everything in it's arsenol to cling to it's mate. That moment is the moment you walked into my life and never left!
This page was more difficult than I imagined. Everything used to make this page was indeed FREE. No cost to me. The patterned paper was a gift, the scrabble tiles were from my mother who bought a scrabble game and found it was incomplete and gave me the pieces. The journal tag is actually a paint chip. The blue jean strip is from an old pair of jeans that I tore up because they were useless anyway. And the stamp was a prize I won at a crop a while back and I used white cardstock from my scraps pile. The only thing I actually paid for would be the ink :)
I live my life behind a camera. I love to photograph anything and everything. It's important to me for memories to be documented. I live for that perfect shot that tells the story. The whole story with simple details. And with that shot, there's tangible proof that lives were LIVED!
The font is from Opposite's Attract.
Cherish page... probably my favorite page so far. Journaling reads, "Do you know how much I cherish you? The smiles, the giggles, the attitudes, the surprises, the love, the laughter, and all the rest. I may not have told you before but I do, with all my heart.... I cherish you. Because you gave me them. You gave me my life and I cherish that. I love you Heath.". This is a statement to my husband who without I would not be who I am nor have a reason to wake up in the morning :)
I kept this one sweet and simple with one of my favorite quotes. No journaling from me, just a photo and quote. Easy and to the point.
I know I listed a lot of pages here, this would be for the last 6 days in my 12 day journey. Tomorrow will be the last day :( I'm so sad to see it end but super excited to finish my album and place it in the living room for the kids to read!
