it says- this picture is so special because of the story behind it. you were 9 months old, and a new walker. We thought it was hilarious because it looks like you were doing a dance by hip hop artist, soulja boy. You were actually in the middle of taking a step. The photographer also commented on your popped collar. The collar combined with this pose was just too funny not to buy!
and please tell me someone else has heard of soulja boy! i swear im not THAT young!
I love all the LOs! I can't wait to do mine, I will be starting it in a bit when I'm done watching Grey's.
Never heard of Soulja Boy! Hehe.
Again, not eligible, but just posting what I created for this challenge:
Not crazy about that quote now, but anyway...

Here's mine. It didn't take very long and I actually think it turned out really cute.
Another simple share from me. We don't have professional portraits done, although we also don't have family photos! (need to make use of that remote I got for my birthday or swap family sessions with a friend) anyway... this is as close as I like to get to "professional portrait" and it is big at least lol (7 x 9.8 in). The blue papers are freebies... can't remember where from, the all boy font is "action jackson" a freebie from dafont.com and the rest I drew myself.
oh if anyone is interested the journalling says "Of all the photos I have taken this is one of my favourites and it is definitely a favourite of you so far.. That serious stare and those big blue eyes... too cute for words! Really it’s no wonder you were looking at me like that, I was sitting on the kitchen floor with you stuck behind the playpen “fence” I just loved the way the light was reflecting in your eyes and had to take advantage of it while the moment lasted"
Ashley, I know soulja boy and I'm not young. HA!!! Great job!! How sweet!!
Statechick (can you please add your name to your siggy) LOL...so beautiful! My fave of yours so far!!!

I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ICECREAM!
I still have to change then to than and print the journaling on white cardstock. I just printed it on scrap paper for now so it is not glued down or anything. Sorry about the bad pics, I have to wait till monday to get my camera
I remember my mom calling, asking me to go to a last minute dinner.
You were leaving that week to visit family in Texas and wanted to see
all us grandkids before you left. I had other plans and told my mom
I couldn't make it. At the last minute Justin and I got into an
argument so I decided to go. Since dinner was at a buffet we were
there for a long time. So long that they were closing and told us we
had to be going. You however did not want to leave without dessert
so you went to the do it yourself icecream machine and made the biggest
cone I had ever seen! When we got in the car your cone was so big
that it fell over. You and Abuella were crying so hard from laughing
as you tried to pick up the icecream and put it back on your cone.
When we got to your house I gave you a hug and kiss goodbye and
told you that I loved you.
A week later I was so happy I did. My mom called and told me
to sit down.While on a relaxing morning walk in Texas you were
hit by a car and died. Grandpa's are supposed to die of old age, not
from being hit by a car!
Although I still miss you so much, I cherish that last laughing
memory that I had with you.
Abuello I love you, so much more than icecream!
Tia - I just got all teary eyed looking at yours. Awesome layout, I love how you are preserving the memory. I'm so sad for your loss though, what a hard way to lose a grandpa.
Lauren - love it! so cute!!!
Amy - that DID turn out nice, I really like it!
Candace - I was admiring this layout in the show and tell, glad you put here too - nice!
