escape {a scrapbook layout}

We've been doing a little bit of cleaning around the house and came across a stack of photos from our trip to Holland, MI way back in 2005. That trip was a just a little weekend away but was packed with memories. It took place just about a month after our son had major surgery to remove tumors from a neural tube disorder. So it was an escape for us in many different ways. {Our Jackson is totally fine-he had no lasting issues and is totally on track developmentally & physically-just some scarring from his surgery-God is so good!}
Every time I think of Holland, I think of the beautiful flowers we saw-even in September. So I knew I had to use some floral paper on this layout and some flower accents.

Used those Amy Tangerine letters I love so much and some more of my Elle's Studio goodies.How did I never know about Elle's before? I've placed two orders since I won a package of goodies in August and have wish list together for another order!
{And totally off topic-my hair is ridiculous in these pictures-I had some really bad hair choices there for awhile, sigh.}
I am super excited because my new Canon DSLR arrived at my house at my house today!! Can't wait to get through work and parent/teacher conferences so I can play with it! Happy Thursday!


  1. Loving the paper strips send all the patterns! So fun! Glad your son was okay, so scary when something is up with one of your kids. Nice to look back on your pictures and know now that he is just fine :)

  2. I love how you used the patterns. And I checked out Elle's Studio, I never heard of it before, but I'm loving it! I'm really glad that your son is okay :)

    Have fun with your new DSLR...I'm totally jealous!

  3. Aren't those letters awesome! I'm in love with them too!

    Love the papers you used. Great pics too!!
