Since she learned to read and write, my oldest daughter has made an almost daily habit of writing notes and songs for her dad and I. Sometimes they are sweet and sometimes they are (unintentionally) funny. Her spelling is still at the point where it is... interesting... but I think it is so cute how she insists on figuring everything out herself without asking for help.
To be honest, I don't always appreciated her thoughtful gestures that way that I should because the obsessively organized part of me does not know what to do with all the random scraps of paper she makes presents of. I feel bad just throwing them in the recycling bin, but at the same time, if I kept every single one I would literally have boxes full.
I don't know why it never occurred to me to incorporate any of her notes into my layouts before. Now that I have done it, it seems like such an obvious thing to do and I am kicking myself for not starting sooner.
This layout was done based on the Sketchy Thursdays March Guest Design Team sketch.
