I still call them Mom and Dad. It all started when I asked if my 10th grade Home Room teacher would ask his parents to bring me an SAT book since they were coming to Senegal for a visit... Then they integrated me into their family 20 years ago when I first came to the U.S. and now 20 years later, they are Grandma A+ and Grandpa A- to my kids :) We never did lack any humor in our relationship. For example, I did not mind being called a "twit" by Dad even though Mother told him to stop lest he hurt my feelings. So much history, so much to document, and perhaps that was why I found it difficult to really say anything on this layout. I do know what they would say when they see this :) Can I get copies of this picture? Yeah, I even have a few printed already :)
Using Jillibean's Sweet and Sour collection, this is my last project as their guest designer and I absolutely loved the two collections I had chosen to work with: Sweet and Sour and Apple Cheddar! I have been very happy with all projects I produced and I think I did them proud!
I am pleased to say that I finally made a few new layouts this past weekend :) I think one of them will be on the Doodlebug blog sometimes this week. Woohoo, new content :) I also made trick-or-treat bags for my kids this year. The un-altered Macy's shopping bags will be officially retired this Halloween. Maybe my Halloween photos will be better this year too without the big RED star of Macy's :)
One update on my United Way auctions at work... half of my stuff have bids on them and we have three more days to go :)
