Wake me up when September ends -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone :) 

Happy September :) 

For those that have followed me for awhile will know that since Aleida Franklin passed away almost 6 years ago - I have taken a monthly photos with my babies :) 
Since we are coming up on the 6th anniversary of her passing, I made a 2-page layout with the past 12 months of my monthly photos with the kids in her honor :)

This is the 3rd year in a row that I have made a layout with all my photos from the past year that are in honor of Aleida :) 

Here is 2012 and 2013 :)
 
I used Bella Blvd.'s Classic Calendars collection on my page :) 
 
 


My title is from Green Day's song "Wake Me Up When September Ends"  -- since Aleida passed away in September 2008, I thought this title was fitting ... 









 
 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
