Love You Molly

I've made a few scrapbook pages recently so I'll be posting those over the next few days. The photo I used here is a couple years old but I really like it. I wish I would have had the patience to wait for processing of a large 8 x 10 but I didn't. I wanted to scrapbook "now" and I didn't want my mojo to leave me so I scrapped with my 4 x 6. Gotta take the energy and inspiration when I can!

Love You Molly

I have no idea where I picked up this little card but I thought it was cute and fun. Especially because there's a private little joke between Molly and me that started when I'd tuck her in at night and I'd say "I love you to the moon and back". Well, one night I forgot and she said it to me but I was already out the door and didn't quite hear her. I thought it sounded like "I love you to the man in the bath." Of course that doesn't make any sense but that's what I heard. So, that's our private little joke now and so I wrote that in on the card so I'd be sure to never forget. It makes me cry a little to think I even could forget something so sweet but I'm old enough now to know what time can do to our memories.

You can see I added a few flourishes to some corners of the photo using Fancy Flourishes stamps (PTI). It really added that little something to the page.
