Memory book



I wanted to make a Baptism Journal...
Got this picture of my boy ...


Then, i find this old notebook...


Chose DCWV Linen closet paper...


Chose the 2 papers i liked with picture...


Got some Canvas from Home Basics...


Cut 2 long pieces taking some thread off the edges.
Tied and glued the two ends behind the cover front.


Used my EK success punch...


Made a tag, punched a hole too.
Stamped my boy initial...


Used some twine to attach the tag on the bow.


Date and name...Ready to hold all the memories of the day !


I placed this picture from the Graphic Fairy in the first page with my name and his name.


I think this is a great idea for any event in a boy's life. 
I love the blues and the black and white picture...

So creative. It turned out wonderfully.

That is something he will have to treasure his whole life. I love it and you did a wonderful job putting it all together. It is easy to go frilly and girly..but harder to do this kind of thing for a boy. Hugs- Diana

It is just harder to make it pretty !

That is such a great pic of your cowboy. I love the way you capture precious moments creatively. I'm sure he will really appreciate the journal when he is older and can look back at the boy he was.
