Jamie Loves Pink!

Clearly I’m not talking about my sister Jamie, who loathes everything pink. Nope, I’m talking about Tiff’s (Inspired by Dominic) son Jamie. She made this kit to honor all those kids out there who don’t fit into little gender boxes. Boys can like pink too! (And girls don’t have to like pink at all, imagine that). I super love this kit and the message behind it. I think it’s easy for those of us who are into themed scrap kits to fall into certain stereotypes. It’s very refreshing to see a kit that really breaks out of that.

It was very hard for me to find pictures with anything pink to scrap. There is just not much pink in my world. I think I’ve had two pink shirts in my entire adult life. So I went in a different direction, inspired by the airplanes in the kit. I have a ton of pictures and stories involving airplanes!

Air Show web

Journaling reads- We went to our first air show in Titusville on March 15, 2008. It’s hard to believe it was five years ago! The boys ran around looking at the planes and posing for pictures. [Little Man] loved going down the huge slide they had set up. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting to have a lot on fun on this trip. But it was a nice excuse to take my big white sun hat on the town. We settled in to watch the air show demonstrations. I prepared to nod off on my feet. Then I heard this roaring sound. Or felt it rather, in my whole body. It was the sound of an F-16. And it was awesome! I’ll never forget the sound (and feel) of it. Maybe air shows aren’t so boring after all 🙂

Since I’m on a Love themed LO kick lately, I did my second layout about how Jason and I sign off of texts. On the iPhone you can use shortcuts to fill in words or phrases when you text or write emails. So by typing ILY, it comes out as I love you love you love you with alll my heart. I know, sap city, right? 🙂

ILY web

Journaling reads- We always close every text conversation or email with this sentence. We’ve done so for as long as I can remember.
