remember when.....

so this last week i got to spend some time with my ever growing niece. she's walking around, making noises, recognizing faces, and getting big! since we live so far apart, i want to make sure that her mom (my little sis), records all those cute little things that come out of her mouth.

the journal is from SU, i painted w/ vanilla acrylic paint, then covered with DCWV designer papers (used rubber cement and clamped in place to dry). used misc. ribbons in coordinating colors. front 'memo' panel is from the SU set "office accoutrement" and is stamped in SU Eeggplant. used similar paper in my CB w/ sizzix flower die for flowers.

i was disappointed when she opened it. i had been waiting and watching so i could see her face and reaction when she saw it, and my littlest one side tracked me at just that moment. my all-time favorite part of giving gifts (especially handmade) is seeing the reaction to the gift on the face of the receiver, and i missed it in this occasion. oh well, she like it!

have a great night!
