Letters To My Daughter

I saw this beautiful album on two peas made by Steph Devlin called "letters to my children" It was so lovely I just had to make something like it. So here is my version....I loved the idea of McKenna having a letter to open at each special birthday and milestone event in her life.I think my next one will be for Jacque and her wedding and events and milestones from then on.I will include poems and inspirational quotes and letters of advice and love along the way.These books are not for in case something happens to us they are for now :) It will take me a while to get all the letters written but I figure I can write when I feel inspired and just add as I go.Mckenna is turning 10 this week so I have some time.

I used this wonderful tag envelope book from Melissa Frances and distressed it with Tim Holtz destress inks.The paper and embellishments were from pink paislee "sweetness" line and basic grey "curio".Used lost of pearls and liquid pearls from ranger my new favorite thing.Lots of Martha stewart punches love them too :)
Thanks for looking :) here is the link to Steph Devlin's album so sweet!!
