Scrapbook Saturday: Picking Baby’s Name

NamingTobinPSK

This layout may end up being one of my favorites in Tobin's first year book. And it doesn't even have a picture of him on it! It chronicles, briefly, the road to choosing Tobin's name (the story makes me smile every time I think of it). It also features photos of my paternal grandfather and William's paternal grandfather, both of whom were awesome men. The idea for this layout is a total … [Read more...]
