Monday 22nd Challenge - My Favourite Book


Monday 22nd Challenge - My Favourite Book

When I first read the challenge this is not what I had in mind. I was thinking of doing a page about my Kindle that can hold a whole library of books but I was inspired by another member here taking part in this challenge - "cabin fever".
I decided this might be a story my grandchildren would one day enjoy reading to know a little about my early years.
In case anyone is wondering... the family photo is my family on the day my baby sister was christened. The photo behind that is me holding her when she was a baby so around the time I would have been reciting the book.

    Beautiful way to preserve your childhood memories for your grandchildren, Anne-Marie! I love your little books on that pretty bookshelf and I really enjoyed reading your journaling very much! Great layout! (I remember Crybaby Calf!)
    Your journalling is wonderful. I like how you gave it space on this LO. Cute books and bookshelf too!
    Oh, Anne Marie - what a WONDERFUL page you have made! I LOVED your wonderfully expressive journaling and felt as if you were telling me a story. Through your words, I could feel the love in your famliy and the excitement in a little girl's experiences in the world of books and how your love for them was grown.
    Your layout is gorgeous - wonderful extractions and photos and can you believe it? I had and read that ballerina book as a little girl all the way over here in the USA! Amazing and you brought back warm memories for me with your page. Super special page - well done! :)
    Lovely story, I love how you interpreted Sunny's layout... this journalling is really sweet and it too will be a treat for the girls when they are older... you did a wonderful job with al your embellishments being placed on the shelves, it looks terrific! Love it.
    LOVE love love the way you placed the books on the shelf. I also like the way you included family photos too! What a great memory!
    Love this page! Wonderful journaling and I am crazy about the book shelf.
    I LOVE this! It's so fun to hear your story and see your books. I loved reading, too, and have passed that love on to my children the best I could. Your journaling is fantastic and I love that you included the family photos and the photos of the actual books. Beautifully done!
    OH MY! This is so precious that I got tears in my eyes. Perfect way to stage your photo, and your journaling is wonderful, heartfelt, and touching. An amazing page that deserves framing!
