I find that sweet little things happen every day and I think it is important to remember and document them.
So this is my little way of remembering that funny little occurrence. The gorgeous woodgrain sheet of paper is from another new release from Studio Calico and can be found here.
Corvus: A Life with Birds by Esther Woolfson
In addition to a gorgeous selection of patterned papers, Studio Calico released a great selection of co-ordinating embellishments such as the tags I used in this layout. They are a fantastic way to add dimension and can be used to mount titles, incorporate journaling or simply act as a layer. I added my journaling by simply printing out from the computer and cutting into strips. I find this technique to be the perfect way to add journaling to a layout without having to handwrite, as I sometimes feel my handwriting spoils the look of my layout.
Again I used the wood veneer asterisks. I seriously love these little embellishments.

They provide a wonderful alternative to the usual flower, heart or butterfly and are perfect for more masculine layouts. Thanks for stopping by x.

Create a new list. Nor have I ever told him about driving away from home in the middle of the night planning to change my identity and start a new life in Vegas. When Kate was about 18 months old, I heard Marie Osmond give an interview talking about her experience with postpartum depression.
All I knew was that I was unfit to be a mother and that everyone—my kids, my husband, even the Osmond family would be better off without me. I took in every word. And at about the same time, we both got in our cars and drove away from our babies. She traveling north on the Pacific Coast Highway. Me traveling northwest towards towards Las Vegas.
Magpies of Fiction
At the end of the interview the audience applauded. She was hailed as courageous for sharing her story, for talking about a taboo subject. I was no Marie Osmond. All the attention, the demands of notoriety were a burden for her.
