A Note from Elizabeth

I loved how reyasunshine used the strips of patterned paper as journaling guidelines and design element on her layout, and wanted to try the same idea with ribbon. I keep all my layouts in 12 x 12 American Crafts albums so I decided it wouldn't matter if I experimented with letting things hang over the edges a bit—I can just put it in a page protector against a 12 x 12 layout. It was fun to try something new! Thanks for the inspiration!


You're less than a month away from turning three and quite frankly, it's hard to keep up with how fast you're growing and changing sometimes. You have so many opinions, starting with "I'm NOT a BABY." Your sisters are alternately the center of your universe and the bane of your existence. You are crazy for "Wonderland and Alice" and your Disney princess dolls. You talk all the time—except when you watch TV. You prefer to mix and match your jammies, and you always thank me for doing your laundry. You make us complete, Bee.
Love, Mama & Daddy
