Love your book. That is such a treasure for any child to have. I was thinking of doing something similar for my grandson who is just now 3 months old (my first) and carry it on with all my grandkids. I have the book you mentioned from chatterbox and this was one of the entries that I loved as well. Thanks for the reminder. You've inspired me to get going on my version
Wow, I cried just reading the description of what this book is for. So precious! And you did an amazing job. TFS!!
Wonderful in every way. A real treasure. This is what memory-keeping is all about.
so wonderfully gorgeous Girl!!!

It gave me chills....I L O V E this idea and think you have created a treasure that she will always keep!
Project - Letters to my Children

Years and years ago, Chatterbox …. remember them ???…. use to hold a competition called “making it meangingful”. I will never forget the year Vanessa Reynes entered.
It wasn't her design, or choice of product that captured me, it was the theme of her entry.
Vanessa decided to dedicate her book to her little girl, so that if she or her husband ever weren't around, (I mean you seriously don't know what is around the corner) her daughter would have a book to go to, for advice during the main events of her life. Vanessa's book had letters hand written from her and her husband, for her daughter's 18th, 21st, Wedding and 1st Baby. I remember thinking, if I ever have children, I want to create one of these book for them. Well, 10 years later, I finally got to catch up on that promise. And even if Mark and I reach the ripe old age …. just the thought of her reading these letters - by herself, is so precious to me.
I have used Grand Revival fabric to cover an old book cover and covered the inserts with fabric too. To pages are made out of bazill and punched with either Martha Stewart or Fiskars Punches.
The envelopes have been home made either through the cricut machine or me just tearing open an envelope and tracing around it to obtain the shape. The chipboard is from Imaginarium Designs.
Thanks for looking xo
