I had seen a story on line where a grandfather kept a journal for his granddaughter. I thought that was an amazing idea so I started Letters to Lauren. After each visit, I write her a letter. I share how much she has grown, what she has learned, what we did and more. I wanted some place special to keep these letters so I decorated a plain pencil box.
I had the perfect papers to use - Mix and Match Sugar and Spice Pad from CanvasCorpBrands
First I gave the box two coats of paint. I also added a thin coat of Vanilla over the Pink.
I started building the layers on the top, beginning with the Baby Girl Quotes and a banner from the It's a Girl Sampler
Ribbon added texture and I cut out her initials from the Pink and Ivory Baby Girl Alpha
and backed it with black corrugated paper
To finish it, I created a cluster around one of the quotes in the paper pad
I included a tag which is titled "What I Want For You" which sums up my feelings perfectly.
I have three letters in here so far and will be adding another at the end of August.
I am not including a photo of my adorable granddaughter because I am honoring my daughter's wishes not to post any baby photos on line. You will just have to believe me when I say she is the cutest!
I you have enjoyed this special project! I cannot wait to give it to Lauren when she is older!
