wow! Brought tears to my eyes.......this is a perfect example of how the journaling of memories is more important than worrying that you don't have the photo's, so no pages of the life changing moments, we live everyday. Having nine children, I often didn't have the pic's, but the memories are overwhelming sometimes. Will follow your lead, and make the pages anyway. Thank you for sharing.
What great journaling! I love the composition too.
Project - No Photo

I was feeling sentimental on Mother's Day and journaled my memories of bonding with my newborn. For many of my most vivid and fondest recollections of that first year, and especially the first few months, there is no photo. No photo of the way he felt next to me, of the slightly powdery fresh baby smell, of the first coos I heard him make, of the late nights we spent in the rocking chair, both desperate for sleep. No photo of my quiet tears or of the prayers I lifted up. There's no photos but I remember.
I used Crate Paper's “snow day” collection here. I built my own embellishment in the lower left corner by layering 3 die-cut journaling spots together then adding a button on top.
Thanks for taking a peek.
