Wanted to share this layout and journaling. It is one of my April assisgnments for Design Team work at Savannah Scrapbooking. I've seen journaling written on pictures all over the place and have done it myself in corners or such on other layouts but thought what a great way to really highlight Ella's eyes this time. All papers/cardstock is Chatterbox (another company that has some amazing talent). Embellishments are Making Memories, Susan Cole, (whoever makes those bottle caps?), and MAMBI.
Journaling reads: Ella is such a joy to our lives. I get all goose-bumpy when Ella opens her eyes, or her eyes latch on to me and she brightens up every time she sees me. My time with this precious girl is limited but it never ceases to amaze me how this blessed four month old can bring such joy just through her eyes. I see laughter in them - so in this we are kindred spirits. My granddaughter somehow knows that laughter is who I am and she wants to be like grammy. Even now thinking about Ella, seeing the laughter in her eyes makes me smile. I see the amazing work of God right there for all to see. My hope and prayer for Ella is that her eyes will always reflect laughter, that she will always have laughter in her life, and that every time she sees her grammy that her eyes will alwasys light up like this.
