It's another Monday over at The Memory Nest. This week it is a fun new sketch by Crystal. Now, I didn't have as much time to do this layout as I usually do, because I only got back a little bit more than a week ago after being stuck in New York from that deep freeze that was going on. While it was great to have the extra time with my family, it did create a lot of chaos to our daily routines.
Anyways, I had been saving our library receipts in hopes to make a page with them. Well, I thought this would be a great layout to make a page about the books we took out this year. Now, the picture isn't the greatest, but I never think about taking a photo at the library. This is actually a photo I found on my mom's camera. I decided that I would put some of my daughter's favorite books that we took out right by the photo and then I listed a bunch more around the layout. I was actually surprised how few book titles I could write around the edge. I thought I was going to be able to fit a bunch more. Anyways, I'm glad that this page came out as cute as it did. I think my daughter will love being able to look back and see what books she picked out and loved when she was three.
I debated a little bit on how I was going to do the title, but in the end I decided to stamp and stitch. The stitching did turn out a bit larger than I was anticipation. I debated if it should just say book, but it really is a page about all (well most) of the books we had taken out so I had to add the S.
