Dear Edward

Hello scrappers! Nicole here, with a layout that tells a story in a unique way. I was inspired by Ali Edwards to create a layout that includes a letter to a loved one. Naturally, I chose to write a letter to my son, Edward. I've actually been thinking about doing this for sometime now and then I saw what Ali did and I just started typing a letter to Edward one night. I wasn't exactly sure what to write, so I just typed what came to my mind. I used the March "Play" Clique Kit with some items I had in my stash for this layout. And a few add-ons from the shop!

I seriously love how playful this kit is. It's so pretty with all the different colors. My favorite part of the kit besides the patterned papers are the die cuts. There's pretty much something in here for every scrapbooker. This kit is perfect for scrapbooking those Spring layouts, but it also includes other patterns and die cuts to work for little boys.
 
I realized after I was finished scrapping this layout that the picture is a little blurry, but that's okay because my main focus of the layout was the journaling. While I was adding the embellishments, I realized the "love you" just above mommy was smeared so I grabbed the "love you" sticker. Totally an accident, but a happy one because I think it looks great.
 
 
 
I decided to use the "unbreakable bond" cork at the top of the layout to help pull this layout together. This is something I added from my stash.
