You LOVE Me

Look at that face!  (I pronounce it "faysh" cuz he's got those cheeksh! Shoh cute!!)  I think Jeremy is about two in this picture.  It's amazing to think this was about a dozen years ago.  One of my favorite stories/memories of this time was our tender mother and son moments.  I'd be holding him on my lap or carrying him and just ooze out, "I love you!" to that little face!  And he would tenderly lay his hands on either side of my face, look me deeply in the eyes and reply, "You love me."  Lol!  Not the response I was expecting, but TRUE, nonetheless!   I'm not sure when he came to verbalize a reciprocal love for me, but I adored this response while it lasted.  :)


I exclusively used My Minds Eye "Collectable" "Remarkable" line for this layout, as it was another Design Team project for Remember When.  Everything, including the washi tape. Oh, but the stamps are from the "Collectable" "Unforgettable" line.  And the yellow bakers twine, while also from My Minds Eye, is from their "Indie Chic" collection.  I decided to handcut the title and gave it a little dimension by sewing across and gently "fluffing" the letters away from the background. 

My inspiration:  this layout by Michelle Hernandez
(known about my house as "Brooklyn Girl" and around the web as WillieburgScrapper, though her star
 is fast rising, and I can probably just start calling her Michelle Hernandez, no aka needed!)

Such a great stamp set.  All of them in the collection, really.  I want them all!  Shh, don't tell Mike, but I bought a second one while I was at the store "just looking" the other night. ;)  But, at $6.99 retail, how could I not???




And, here is my journaling.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit!  I have another "off the page" project that I made with these lovely papers that I will share with you later this week!  The paint is drying!  ;)

Have a wonderful day!!
