Opal Club — Layout 4
Whether you have an adventurous little boy or a darling little girl in your life, you will be completely smitten with today's steal, Little Boy or Little Girl by Echo Park. I have to say that I was smitten when I saw the photos of the new addition to one of our ScrapbookSteals fans, family. I asked Peggy Spencer if she'd mind if I used photos of her sweet new baby to create a layout for her for this week's Mid Week Mojo.
I love how the Little Boy collection not only works for boys of all ages, but for babies straight from heaven!
Peggy was funny. When I asked her if she would send journaling for the layout she replied that journaling was not her strong point and gave me a few brief sentences with the statistics of little Jeremiah. Then she proceeded to tell me a little about how things were going and how happy she was to be given a second chance at being a mommy. The words written directly to me were so heartfelt and touched me deeply. I took her words and changed it into journaling written to her son, because if Peggy could tell those things to me, a friend via internet, then those words most definitely hold true to her son. Peggy, don't underestimate your journaling abilities girl. You have it from the heart!
The stickers in today's collection made for a snappy title and a little extra embellishment to the page.
Thank you so much Peggy for allowing me to share your sweet lil' man with everyone for this week's Mid Week Mojo.
