How many times have we captured the moment and not fully lived it?

..but the biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three on them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.

These works of art were created by Heather Prins the creative director from All Moments Remembered.





Debbie Sherman from the All Moments Remembered design team create this fun frame. She use the papers from Dream Street Birdie bits,BE frames and American Crafts, fieldhouse collection. She plans to have it on her desk with her grand kids pictures in it.






I encourage you to take time each day to live in the moments happening in your life. Being scrapbookers we often remember to capture them with photographs but we sometimes need to be reminded to live, feel, breath, touch and cherish them.

Stacy, your are so right about living each day to the fullest. Live like it's your last...When up are confronted with death is when you are reminded to do this. Funny how we all take life for granted. Thanks for reminding me to enjoy everyday.
