Well this morning I put both of my little girls on the school bus. I was not ready. I'm sure you've all heard the phrase, "Good parents give their children roots and wings." by Jonas Salk. That's what I kept repeating this morning, roots and wings, roots and wings. The Husband also left for school today too (he's a teacher) and I was not as sad to see him go after 2 months home of together time. He is very helpful when he's home and I appreciate it but sometimes absence and the heart, well you know. I made this mini album of the girls for him to take back to school with him.
This fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies we are challenging you to make a mini album. 3 pages is enough, more is completely up to you. I used a Silhouette cut file of an album box and 3 live, laugh, love journal cards. I welded the 3 cards together and then drew perforated lines between them. I then cut out 2 of them, one out of blue cardstock the other out of yellow. Then I deleted all the word blocks and cut it out once more from a bright pink cardstock. Glued the blue to the pink and the yellow to pink on the other side and had myself an album. For the labels/frames I used another cut file that I wrote the text questions and answers on and then used the print and cut feature. I have blurred the text but you get the idea. Each year we've taken the girls for some portraits and I used a photo from each of those years. Their pictures matched up pretty well with the sentiments too.
Daddy was very happy to get his album and keeps it on his desk at school.
