Journaling reads: Here is Jordan playing sidewalk chalk on the driveway. The sight of these little piggies in slippers makes me smile for so many reasons. First because they are just cute…but also because they are in slippers, in Hawaii. Jalen was born in Alabama and did not learn to wear slippers for a while. The fact that Jordan has these years in Hawaii, experiencing things that I did when I was growing up here…I just can’t explain.

the last group is my POTD album so far. I switched back to normal large rings until I really need the super supreme sized rings… The dividers are monthly dividers bought at an office store… I added a strip of Making Memories 5th avenue paper and maya roads stitched velvet ribbon. each “4×6″ picture is mounted to the same sized cardstock alternating two shades of blue… and the back of the cardstock is the journaling side for the facing picture. I used a Stampin’ Up! journaling stamp, daily news stamp and a date stamp. I have journaled for each day. It was very helpful that I put a little blurb on the blog/flickr account for each day…
wow, did you make it this far? So I am waiting to hear if flat Joscie has made it to Oregon yet… I should have made a book for her adventures… I have had several offers to have her visit. I am very excited. I have a circle journal to work on and a few other odds and ends. Hope this finds you all in good spirits, and I’ll blog you later!
