I ended up creating journaling spots using Studio Calico stamps with Jenni Bowlin (stick candy) and Papertrey Ink (ocean tides) ink, Studio Calico wood buttons, Papertrey Ink blue buttons and twine, and cork punched with a Martha Stewart mini heart confetti punch.
Instead of a patterned paper, I stamped an alphabet background (also Studio Calico) in the bottom right corner and placed a Pink Paislee wood letter initial, that was misted, in the center of it.
This layout was soooo fun to make! You know how I feel about making my own embellishments!! And I've been wanting to document this day for almost a month now. Here's a close up of the journaling:
I was soooo choked up when I saw his excitement turn to nervousness. You can see it in his 'smile'....totally forced. But, he didn't cry....that day. :)
A little journaling and doodling with my new found love....the American Crafts Precision Pens....and there you have it!
Thanks so much for stopping in! Have a great rest of your weekend! :)
