A Trip of a Lifetime mini book

I went to Woven Hearts yesterday and got there too late for the Creative Cafe, but when I saw the mini book they did, I begged for a kit! Since Nola was still there, she sweetlymade up a kit and gave me the directions for the little book. I think it will be a perfect little book for some of Casey's trip to Paris photos. What do you think? Cuuuuute, huh?

My little book "Life's Moments".

Spent a great weekend last week at Woven Hearts Scrapbook Store in Lake Charles, LA where I took a class from the sweet Nola.  I went with Mary, my buddy and partner in scrapbook spending.  The store had all their paper 40% off, so of course, I had to partake!! 

Any way, this little book was taken from an article by Jane Tragenza in "Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine" winter issue.  Nola prepared everything for the book so that we could make it.  Of course, she adapted it so that we could finish in the time alloted and I will probably add a few things to it as I add pictures.  If you have a chance to take a class at WH, I highly recommend it.  Here are some photos of my book.
This is our cover.  We used primarily Graphic 45 papers.  I chose this title because of the phrase, "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."  That phrase will be printed and mounted on the next page.

I am thinking that this page will have photos of my parents and our family growing up.

This page will show pictures of my parents, little me and David and possibly little Ralph.  Also one of our wedding photos.

These will be for baby Casey and our family.
I'm thinking Casey and family photos.
Casey as a child at Christmas will go here.
Casey's graduation and below maybe our 35th anniversary photos.

I also need to come up with something for inside the back cover or I can leave it blank.  We really had fun with this.  Thanks for looking!
