i have another pebbles layout to share, from my design team submission. i started making this about two weeks before haley was leaving, and tried my best to finish in time to get it in her book. but i ran short on time. so this is new to her parents and to all of you.
last night, we had haley and her mom over for dinner. dad had to stay home since he wasn't feeling well, but we did send some yummy food back for him. it's been a few weeks now, since haley left us to start pre-school. i think it's been quite the adjustment for all of us. we miss her more than ever. i miss having someone to talk too during the day. she was such a great story teller and talked non-stop. we miss her smiling face and bouncy way of running all over. i miss seeing her mom (and her dad every now and then) drop her off and pick her up. she was always wide awake and chatting in the mornings, when i was half asleep still. and i was wide awake and chatting in the afternoons, when she was half asleep. lol! i know that haley misses us. her mom said that she's liking pre-school, and learning a lot. she's making friends and getting settled. but she also says that she still asks to come to my house every morning. which in some ways, makes me feel just a little good inside. just knowing that we were that important to her.
i used the twitterpated collection for this layout. this is why i have loved pebbles pattern paper for years. look at all the fun patterns. this might be a collection geared towards love. but the pattern papers are always so versitile, and can be used for so many different things. hearts, dots, stripes. these are patterns i'll use over and over. for my title, i cut out one of the blocks from the perforated 3x3 sheet (it's a 12x12 sheet, but the blocks are all 3x3). there was a doodley flower in the middle that i didn't care for. so i wrapped some string around the card, adhered some paper flowers and a button with brads in the middle, and pop dotted the entire thing on the page.
