Challenge #129 - Journaling Challenge

The Challenge this week at sketchesbytamara is a journaling challenge. Our challenge was to journal on a tag. I know, I know -- my completion is pretty weak but I was having problems with journaling my dd's various events without input from her. Here is my entry for the challenge.

This is one of the layouts that is going to college with Lindsey, hence, lots of bling. Paper was purchased at Scrap Etc. several years ago. Now let's see what you do with this challenge!

A Mother's Joy

when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the first time,
and a playful kick reminds her that she is not alone."

My dd has asked me to make her some layouts that she can put up on her dorm room walls this fall. I love that she's a girlie girl so I can use plenty of bling and flowers. Here is my latest layout for her. This is based on a sketch challenge over at sketches by tamara.
