excuses


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.
