from party to page


Really glad that I got my thoughts about her birthday onto paper... and pretty paper none the less. But whether you scribble them on a napkin, in your journal or on a scrapbook page it's those thoughts that make the moments live on. When I look through my scrapbook albums my favorite pages are the ones where I took the time to write heartfelt details and leave a lump in my throat taking me back to that time.
Lots of my Dear Lizzy goodies used: Banner paper, Alphabet stickers, Rubons, Stickers
My friend Margie gave me some fun, little tidbits perfect additions including the vellum envelope holding a small tag with a note to Avery, pink pocket, small pearls, lace and ribbons.
American Crafts: Yellow dot
Crate Paper: clouds & dots
Butterfly punch... love it!
Thanks for looking!

PS Thanks to everyone who joined in the Shades of Summer! If you emailed me you are on the list and more details to follow...

You never cease to amaze me girl...can I have an ounce of your creativity, please? Actually, I'll take an afternoon sitting by (I promise I wouldn't be too much of a bother!) & observing you in action. :) Love this page & love that's it's not only cute, but heartfelt as well! One that sweet Avery will appreciate & remember forever. Thanks for sharing once again!

It's soooo important to journal, I feel. I often read my kids older scrapbook pages and think "oh my, I forgot that happened". I know my kids, when they are older, will appreciate all the heartfelt words, as I;m sure yours will too!!!
Your page is pure eye candy, love the colors!

What an incredible page. I adore it.. so much detail. I always found that when I scrapbooked and looked back, I really cherish those ones with the heartfelt journaling as well... sometimes I look at the ones with just pictures and wonder "What was I really feeling when creating this?"... wish I would have jotted some notes down to remember the exact memories. KWIM?
Love this page and all the beautiful pictures and details.
