When I look at the layout I'm posting today, it occurred to me that so many of my favorite photos are not the birthday party photos, or Christmas or event type pictures, but my favorites seem to be those that are the everyday little moments.  These seem to be the things that touch my heart the most.

These little snippets of time are what I want my grandchildren to remember.  And I hope they can see themselves through my eyes and know how much they are loved.  While I enjoy making pretty pages, this is really my driving force I think. 

OK, the particulars.  I had one sheet of a craft die cut paper from Fancy Pants that I picked up oh, a couple of y-e-a-r-s ago at a stamp and scrap show.  It matched (wonder of wonders) some pieces of Fancy Pants that I had in my stash.  Sorry, haven't a clue as to the actual name of the collections this time.

I split the die cut paper and placed the two pieces at opposite sides on two pieces of kraft cardstock, then tucked in the blue and striped pieces. 

Oooops, I just realized that I didn't take a picture of the two pages together!  

Anyway, the alphabet is from Little Yellow Bicycle.  It was a great color of navy blue and navy seems to be a hard color to find in alpha stickers, so I've used this one a bunch. I added some strips from a K&Co. border pack, and punched one border piece using the Fiskars bracketed border punch.   The tickets and tags are a combination of things from Prima, Tim Holtz, and Echo Park.  I scattered a few brads and a couple of buttons and a couple of the tiny word stickers from a Cosmo Cricket Tiny Alpha set and stapled on a couple of snips of ribbon.   Printed my journaling, cut it into strips, inked and outlined the edges and stuck on a couple of tiny paper clips before I glued 'em down. 

Thanks for stopping by!
