It's really the little things...

Several years ago my daughter wrote a letter to the tooth fairy and left it on her bedside table, along with a nickel.  Here is what the letter said:

Dear Tooth Fairy,

I don't want money. Give it to someone who needs it more. I'm blessed. Give it to someone who's not. Here's 5 cents more. I like littlest pet shops. I hope you give the money who needs it more than a blessed child like me.

Since really,

I may not be a perfect parent, but that made me feel like we were doing something right.  

I used this kit from Hip Kit club to make this layout.  I love the way that it turned out and makes me so happy that I put this note away in a safe place.  I plan on tucking the original note in a pocket that I make on the back of the page.

I love these gold Thicker words and they are perfect to make a quick title!

I have a process video if you'd like to take a closer peek at my process.

  1. The layout is beautiful but the story is really something. I got a lump in my throat reading your journaling. What a wonderful moment you've captured about your sweet daughter. You ARE definitely doing something right!

    1. Thank you Susan! She is a sweet girl and she makes me proud to be her mom.
