Here is a closer look at the scallop border on the bottom photo - it's made with my new Martha punch! I love it. Not only do you get the lovely scalloped edge, it embosses too. Adorable. The flower trim beneath is a 12" sticker which I clipped to go around the pattern paper circle.
I still haven't done my journaling ... this is the toughest part for me. Everything I think of sounds silly or cliche ... I think I should take a class on how to journal! And -- I have a better photo of the last layout of my youngest son, but my camera and computer are refusing to communicate this morning so I can't get it uploaded. I promise to repost soon.
