Her Laughter

My daughter, Rebecca, has one of those infectious laughs that makes you laugh right along with her.  It's a very hearty, joyous, 'all-is-right-in-the-world' kind of laugh.  I can still remember the first time Rebecca laughed -- really laughed -- when she was a baby.  My dad was making funny faces at her (with googly eyes and full sound effects like only grandpas know how to do), and she broke into uproarious laughter.  With each googly face he made, Rebecca laughed harder and harder.  Her laughter was so powerful that she scared herself and started crying (awwwwww!).   But she soon learned that laughter is a wonderful thing, and she's been laughing ever since.  And I've been laughing right along with her!

Here's a layout featuring a picture of her laughing when she was about 3 years old (she's 8 now).  This is one of my favorite pictures of her, and I finally got around to scrapping it.

This page is based on Prima's August Build-a-Page.  I used papers from Prima's Flights of Fancy and Raspberry Tea collections, along with lots of other Prima goodies.  The patchwork squares were inspired by a similar patchwork design that I saw on a layout by Jenni Hufford. I couldn't resist adding a little bit of crocheting!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Stunningly gorgeous page Stacy, I love everything but especially the crocheting. I refer to your post when I say I can so totally relate, Nate has an infectious laugh to and I just laugh so much throughout the day because of his sense of humour and that cackle. These are the things in life that are just so precious to me too. Love Melxx
