Yup, a layout! Are you surprised? I've actually been doing a lot of scrapbooking lately. I have a goal of 36 layouts for 2012 and I've already completed 9. Woohoo!

My thoughts about scrapbooking have changed thanks to my friend Catherine. Scrapbooking has been a hot topic at StampNation where Catherine has stressed the importance of a story. In the past, I would have scrapped this pretty picture of my baby girl "Izzy" (Yes, I am a crazy cat Mom, but I only have one cat!) and titled the layout "Sleeping Beauty" or something similar, made it pretty and left off journaling. Instead, I titled it "Hyperthyroid", which she's recently been diagnosed and told the story about that. See what I mean, it's the story that is important.

**Edited to add- Izzy is just fine. Her thyroid levels will be maintained daily through twice a day meds.

I'm sorry to hear she has a problem and I hope they can keep it unter control for her. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers. I love the layout and your story told.
