The story for today is Grandchildren.
I have three.
They are each beautifully different, different personalities, different likes and dislikes and each has a special place in my heart, reserved just for them.
To protect these precious children I have concealed their faces and anything that which may identify them.
Day 4 left side:
A full 8x8 photo of the littlest, it is his first Christmas!
Day 4 right side:
A collage of more photos of this littlest one with a space for some journaling sits opposite, it is 8x8 also. A collage of those teeny tiny precious hands!
Day 4 Middle page:
In the middle sits a smaller page protector (5.5 x 8.5). The 2 older grandchildren are in the photo that is adhered to plain blue American Crafts textured cardstock. This serves as a flap on the outside of the pocket ensuring that inside there is a lot of room for journaling, there is also room on the back if I need more space. The flap piece (photo matted on blue cardstock) is secured on the left edge only, to the back white cardstock with garden variety clear packing tape. I have mostly seen washi used to secure pieces together but knew that the photo was going to take up the whole of the flap. I may add a co-ordinating piece of washi on the inside yet. The Christmas Tree flair badge is half foam adhered on the right so that the flap can slip under on the left. The number '4' will most likely go just below the flair badge.
The cardstock and flair badge are from my kit which can be found here. And it's currently 15% off!
That journaling is almost done but not included, and will not be shared here.
I have journalled in the form of a letter to each grandchild.
Thank you for visiting or revisiting, thank you also for the lovely comments that are being left, it really is the Season for giving and sharing.
May the rest of your day be filled with time spent with those you love and hold dear, that sums up my day for sure!
