Hello and welcome to Day 16 of my December Daily® album for 2018.
Today I'm sharing a story about how much I love that Anna (and Simon) have followed in Chris' footsteps to be really good card givers. They take time and attention when selecting cards and that definitely comes from him rather than me. It's something I always liked about him and something that I love seeing Anna and Simon do as well.
This is a great example of slowing down enough to see stories happening in front of you. While she was selecting cards I stood there and watched her and smiled to myself. Rather than being in a hurry to get on to the next thing or going to another area to cross other things off my list I let her take her time. While she was doing that I grabbed my phone and snapped a photo in order to tell this story today.
Here's a look at how it came together:
In the Product Play 2 workshop I created the 2x2 page to hold a story using "who, what, where, when, and why" as the jumping off point for the story (this is under the titles/text lesson). Again, this is part of the reason I love foundation pages - they give me a starting place/story beginning for many of my days. In today's story the whole thing moved along quicker because I had already stamped the cards and had them all ready to add my story.
I printed a full page photo (same size as the outside of the page protectors) that shows Anna looking at cards at Target for her teacher. On top of the photo I added a circle chipboard piece and a gold glitter star from this package. On top of the gold star I added a small letter "A" for Anna.
The second page is a 2x2 pocket page protector. Inside those pockets you'll find white cardstock with green stamped titles using this stamp set and my handwritten responses. I also added a couple of custom squares that include "love your mighty heart" and "finding words that matter" and "go Anna go." You'll also find circle chipboard pieces and gold glitter stars.
