excuses

I had so much fun making this little altered book using 4 x 6 photos. On cardstock, I printed out tags from various kits and cut them out and then went crazy with the stapler, ribbon, tags and photos. Everything was just stapled in, right on top of the plastic page protectors, even the photos! All the bows were just scraps of ribbons or strips of fabric from my sewing cupboard.

 

Journaling reads:

When it comes to doing your chores your chores you’ve got every excuse in the book

I love your curious mind, your creative thinking and all of your inventions. I love that when you decide to do a job you are fast and a really good worker. There is nothing that brings me more joy than being your mom.

Paula, you are so creative! I love the idea of doing a whole LO on why he doesn't want to do his chores! Someday he will look at this a just crack up! Your idea of using the journal with the tabs and the picture laying on top of it all is genius. As always, fantastic work!
