Carolina Girl (Cely)
I can finally announce... "I'm going to be a GRANDMOTHER"!!!  I have known for a month and was sworn to secrecy.  Do you have any idea how hard it is to be told you are going to be a grandmother "for the very first time" and then be told you can't tell ANYONE for a month!!!!! It was killing me.

On my blog posts, I was going on the premise that I was finally doing a scrapbook for my youngest son.  It was a good reason for keeping the colors neutral.  I will do a scrapbook for my son, but this one is for the new 1st grandbaby.  I won't do anymore pages until we find out the sex so I can make at least 5 pages very pink or very blue...haha  In the meantime.....as for my dear son Mitchell, I will start working on his 1st year scrapbook now....he just turned 19 last week!

( There are 3 sets of GRANDparents and 3 great-GRAND parents so this is a page I dedicated for us and them.)  So....ain't it GRAND!!!

    Congratulations! I thought they were for YOUR son! I sure hope you get LOTS of time with the new baby and you fall in love all over again. I'm so blessed my girls have grandparents (I didn't have ANY) and I know you will bring such joy to this little one's life!!

    As for your layout - gorgeous. I especially love the pins in the tomato! And you even included a seam ripper. How perfect.
