Description: This month it's all about families and history and heritage. When I think of our little family it takes me back to the days when I first had two children. I'll be honest, it took me a long time to muster up enough courage to take them both outside on a walk! But eventually I did and we took many "turns around the neighborhood." I finally felt like I could handle two kids and was thriving!
Journaling says: It took me about six months to finally feel like I knew what I was doing with 2 kids! I'm so grateful for the sunshine that allowed me to take you on lots of fun walks!
Cut and punch out all of the printables then start layering and adding the cut files and printables in a 3x3 grid on a white cardstock layout background. Adhere the pieces in place. Tuck a small photo into the middle frame. Embellish with buttons, badges, and the smaller printables. Stamp the date on one of the tabs and journal on a ticket. Mix a light purple watercolor and drop it over three of the flower printables.
