A Gift from Usher's Boys

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.
