Livre Français De Composition



Mum and I handcrafted embellished composition journals this afternoon after visiting one of our favourite local craft shops. While we didn't need to buy anything (we have wooden boxes FULL of ribbons, buttons, French paper, shells, and enough glitter to make anything sparkle!), we managed to fill a small shopping basket with a few little tidbits we couldn't resist! It's not our fault they get a new shipment in every Sunday!! After taking Ben to the park, we quickly got started...if only you could see our craft table now!

Sounds as if you and your mom had a great afternoon. You are building precious memories together. I love to spend time with my daughters.

I just came from your mom's blog. As I told her.. I identify with you and your mom, as my daughter and I both blog, and share a similar relationship. As a mother I can't tell you how much I enjoy it.
Your collage here is lovely.

This is really nice. I was looking back through your past posts and am dying to see if you can let me know where to find the eiffel tower charm you received for your birthday. It's precious!

I love your work! So creative...
I can only hope that my daughter will still enjoy time with me when she is older. For now, she loves being with me and with her Grandmother too.
You and your Mom are both so special...

Hugs,
Sue
