Huh. The day I took this photo of Brenna was one of the best days in recent memory. I took the kids to the cross-country ski club to pick strawberries and I got at least a dozen beautiful pictures of them. Then I managed to find this gorgeous Jillibean Soup pp at Creative Accents to match Brenna's outfit (it even has strawberries in it, thanks, Sarah!), so I was pretty much set, but the journaling really had me stumped. At first I was going to write something like, "A perfect day is a day with you!" but that's just soooooooo not me. Well, after wracking my brain for ages, this is what I came up with:
I like the end result, and you know, if I wasn't entering this LO in a challenge, my journaling would have been more mundane, like who-what-when-where-type journaling.
I'm also entering this one in the August challenge for the Creative Accents Challenge Blog. They are asking for entrants to use some older products from their stash, and it can be anything, so you better join me on this one, because it doesn't get much easier than that! The pp base and daisy strip (love that, it's from a new piece of Sassafrass Lass paper!) are brand spankin' new, but everything else is at least a year old, and those chunks of cardstock are probably 5 years old!
Well, the boys are off camping in the alpine (hope they're okay, they didn't call to let me know what trail they're on or anything!) so it's been lovely and quiet here (except for Brenna stepping off a bed and falling flat on her face!) I've got a movie that I didn't think Jason would want to watch, and a glass of wine (if I can get the dang cork out, I'm pretty hopeless with those things) and date night is on! Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
