Hunting themed baby album

Ok so there have been ALOT of changes in my life that I am ready to share with you. Let's go back to August when I caught my husband on tv (he was at a sporting event) with another woman. Well to make a long story short, after 7 years together (6 married) we separated. After months of soul searching and focusing on me and my son, I decided to get back into the dating world and found the most amazing guy in the entire world. I am happier than I have ever been and hence why I am back scrapping.

So now onto my current project. My very dear friend Sarah, and her husband Cory have been trying for over 5 years to have a child and unfortunately have not been able to conceive. Then they found out they were adopting a boy. As soon as they found out they were expecting she asked for a hunting themed baby album. I gave it to her this past weekend and she loved every part of the album. I was so worried that i wouldn't be able to create a cute baby album with a hunting theme but I am so happy with the way the album turned out.

Owl baby album

I know I know it's been much too long since my last post and for that I am sorry. But my life has been a soap opera (to say the least), a friend who became homeless moved in with me, I started work, a friend who became homeless moved in with us, my husband walked out on my son and I for another woman, my health has been in decline (since stress is REALLY bad for my thyroid), my mom came for a visit, my son had his 6th birthday (superhero themed yay!!!), I abruptly lost my job since my contract ended without notice, I went and spent time with my girlfriends in Bonnyville, I started decluttering my house (since i don't need a three bedrooms with just two of us), I started dating (met some very "special" people, and one who has changed my life for the better - - - will be scrapping him soon since i'm making him a scrapbook album of our "firsts" for christmas. So yes some highs and lows so I haven't had the motivation to get into my scrap space but after baby being over a month old I decided I was finally in a good space and ready to scrap. Hope you like :)

More layouts from this weekend

So for the last couple of months, I have not been in a very good place physically and emotionally and over the last couple of weeks I have been really looking at myself and what I need in my life to make me the best Rebecca I can do, and one of the things I need to do is take more photos of myself. . .not only take more photos of myself but every photo i take of myself find atleast three things I like about that photo.

Canada 150: when my son and I went to the canada 150 celebrations this past july 1st at jubilee park in Spruce Grove we went into the photo booth. When i got the photos, my first reaction was to throw it out because I looked awful, either my eyes were closed, i was making weird squinty eyes or just looked off. But then I thought no - - this is me, I am not perfect all the time and that is okay!!!! So instead of looking at the terrible photos I look at the joy in our faces and remember all the fun we had that day!! Based on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine August Sketchy challenge:

Also entering in Challenge YOUrself using diecuts. . .both circles were cut using die cuts, the maple leaves and the coffee cups are also cut using diecuts
