Aren’t these photos wonderful? There are a few little details in here that I should point out as being meaningful:
- For instance, how sweet my mom looks here; she’s a few months shy of 27 and just adorable! There are times when I look in the mirror and see such a strong resemblance between us, even though I really take after my dad’s side of the family more.
- Mom wrote on the back of these photos, “Mommy gets a bite (thus, my title), 5-1/2 months.” That would date this photo as mid-April 1967, which means she was already pregnant with my brother!
- We were in the house of one of Mom’s teaching friends.
I used this sketch from PageMaps for inspiration:
And most of the supplies I used were from the beautiful April scrapbook kit I won from Artful Delight:

Oh Janice you truly do have such wonderful photos of you as a child, wonderful memories to share too! As soon as I saw the photos of your mum I could see your resemblance with her. It looks like the kit you won had lots of wonderful things to play with I am loving the papers and burlap flower you have used for this gorgeous page. xx
