I'm a hoarder, yes I am

I am a keeper of all things. I always have been. But when it comes to scrapping and gorgeous patterned papers, my hording-ness (nice word, right?) comes out full force. I've had that red flowered Pink Paislee paper for awhile now, and I just couldn't bring myself to touch it, much less cut it. But alas, those flowers were really calling for me the other day, so I finally broke free and pulled the paper out ;-) And i'm so glad I did! I combined several different lines here, and this is what I got:
I love these photos of my then-very young Chloe (16 months!) making dandelion wishes. I think these papers definitely did those photos justice. Journaling says: Never stop believing in wishes, Chloe. One day they will all come true!

Hubby has been working a ton lately, and I think we're all exhausted in this house. It's definitely going to be an early night for us. Hope everyone out there in blog land had a great weekend! Happy Monday!!
