Yeah...not so much. Letting go a bit of this need to perfectly fill each child's album with all the most recent events and what not.
But when I recently came across these photos from a hiking trip in September, I was just struck by a few things in these photos. So this page now belongs to my youngest daughter and is part of her album.
I look forward to this freedom I think the approach will bring me in the future. Especially now that the older ones are, well, older. The words I want to share with them are so much different than when they were littles.
Heidi Swapp's Wanderlust. It's a beautiful program available at Joann and also showing up online in places like A Cherry On Top.
Memory Dex Cards here to highlight the date. I have always been a push over for anything tabbed. These cards will be finding their way on lots of my layouts and only maybe actually in the Desktop Memory Dex Tray.
Memory Dex Pockets, also intended for the Desktop Tray, will wander and be found on other projects. This one here is actually holding my journal card.
Another Memory Dex Patterned Card is used as the inclosed journal spot. I trimmed off the bottom pieces that attach to the Tray and rounded the corner.
Sentiments Foil Rub On Kit. I took the 'best ever' image and rubbed the sticker part on pattern paper. Then the gold foil was rubbed over the sticky using my finger to add some heat. And tad-dah! A beautiful gold foil feature. That and the Salmon Color Shine misted 'adventure' Wood Veneer rounded out this project and gave it it's name as well.
