This week, I had a wonderful opportunity to create a really meaningful photo album for a father from his two little boys. The album was a birthday present, and since his sons are barely out of preschool, I received a call from their grandmother. Jonnetta Patton, Usher Raymond's mother, called me to request a custom album for her son. She wanted each page to detail, through the photos and journaling, the wonderful relationship that Usher has with his boys. No embellishments, no traditional scrapbooking...just a story for a Dad, told through pictures of him and his sons.
If you know me, you know I love what I do...I love the bling, the buttons, and the pattern paper. But this week I was reminded of why I really scrapbook every day and why I started a business to do it -- the pictures and the stories. Thank you so much Jonnetta, for allowing me to create such a wonderful gift for your son. I hope he loves it...and I hope that someday his boys see what I saw in those photos.
