Matchbook Scrapbook

Alright, I know this is not SU only, but I am really trying to use the stuff I already have had for a long time. I found this BasicGrey Matchbook to put together years ago and it has just sat here. Well, I finally pulled it out to put it together the other night. I am giving this to my sister this weekend as a "congratulations" gift. I am so proud of her. She has come a long way to get where she is today. She has missed out on a lot, but is so ready to make up for it. So I made this with pictures of mostly of things we did last year that she missed.

I added "family" and the flower to the cover to give it that little something.
These are school pictures of 2 of her boys. I honestly thought they were this past years school pics and then found out yesterday that they are the year from the year before. (No one else caught it when I showed it to them.)

This one is a picture of the Mississippi River when it flooded here last year. The boys are standing on the road the leads to the freeway and the bridge! This flood surpassed the flood of 1993. You know, the one that is only suppose to happen once every 500 years! LOL Boy, talk about time flying! I knew I was getting older, but man I must of really fell asleep. Funny, I thought I'd age more! LOL


This is a picture of all the boys (my sisiters and I had ALL BOYS) minus one. Every year I make cookies and the boys don their santa hats and frost cookies. I missed when they were younger and called it painting cookies. And the other picture is our Christmas Day picture after opening presents.
The saying is: Our children are watching us live, and what we are shouts louder than anything we can say.
