It's such a touching thing to be able to have a keepsake of your child's first days, months and years. We still have our baby book and feel so lucky to read our mom's memories of our earliest days as the newest member of the family. Ali Edwards' reflections journal is certain to be an heirloom her little Anna will cherish forever...
One of the things I am hoping to do over the next few weeks after the new baby arrives is document some of those thoughts, feelings, emotions, and observations in a little journal/minibook. The concept is simple; putting it together is simple. In this case I wanted something that was smaller, that could go in a bag or sit on my bedside table, that was easy to grab and jot down my reflections.
Her journal is the perfect grab and go book. Not only is it beautiful, but it's well organized as well. Ali has it divided into sections titled "Reflections", "Memories" and "Moments". She used a three ring Heidi Swapp/Janet Hopkins Memory Binder and used various patterned papers and stamps to pull the entire look together.
