What a gorgeous book for Sierra to write in! It's great that she's so interested in writing from such a young age!!!

Oh my WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE that!!! **sigh** I just want to do one of them SO badly but really just don't know where to start. So, here is a question: Please do an online class with soemthing like that in it. I would love to do one for Darcey, perhaps to give to her when she recieves the Sacrament of Holy Communion in May. It's a big day for her and heaven knows, I have 6 Gazillion pics of her as a baby. Oh Purdy Please Miss Melissa??????

Glad to see that Mr. Melissa is included in this post:-). I feel like an idiot calling him that in my emails and on cards but he HAS to be included - he is Daddy Bear after all! LOL.

Hey Mr Melissa :-) **waving**

K, now I'm giggling so better go!LOL.

So beautiful, and so special that your little one has a place to write anything and everything about herself and her family. Later all of you will treasure these photos, but her words of right now as well. I love pulling out my son's stories, poems, random thoughts of kindergarten and first grade. Now that he is about to graduate from college, it is fun to see that personality peeking through in his childhood work. Thanks for sharing.


OMG!! This is soooo adorable!! I love all the frilly things and butterflies. It's so dainty and and and more words except AWESOME

Debbie Marcinkiewicz

So beautiful, Melissa. I love journals and books, they are my most favorite thing to make right now. They carry so much love tucked inside the pages. Just finished one for my SIL and can't wait to give it to her this week. I know Sierra will treasure hers forever.


what a beautiful piece of history you have just made - I hope that your grandchildren and their children will cherish this as much as your daughter will clearly do. I love the theme and colour scheme you have followed, it really is a stunning piece of work.

Thank you for sharing and inspiring.

Breathtakingly beautiful! What a lovely and loving way to capture memories.

Gabriela (Gabi With An Eye)

What a beautiful heirloom this will be when Sierra is all grown up. This is just another testament to the love and the bond that unites you three. It's exquisitely done!


Melissa; I am speechless. Beautiful! And what a lovely idea to create such an adorable album for Sierra! A perfect way to treasure precious memories. When I looked at the pictures I could feel the love. Baby pictures are always lovely to look at. I enjoy looking back at the baby pictures of my sons.
You are such an inspriration; thanks for the beautiful post!I never made an album before but after this post I must say that you gave me so much inspiration that I am thinking to give it a try!


What a beautiful album!


That is one of the most precious little albums I've ever seen. So light and girly. Love love love it. :)

Debbie Mercer

That is such a beautiful album and a beautiful idea. I am sure all of you will cherish it forever especially with your daughter's own writing in it!

That journal is simply gorgeous. How wonderful that your sweet daughter can start her family memories at such a young age.


**SIGH***!!!!! blown away!! how beautiful!! i'm expecting my first baby soon! first week of march and its a girl :) i must make her an album too!!


Breathtaking and such a lovely sweet idea to allow her to write her own journal.


I am....... well..... speechless and teary eyed. What a beautiful journal you've created for your daughter - everything about it is breathtaking!

How do you do it - how do you create such beautiful pieces time and time again? I don't know if I can stand any more inspiration this week! ;) I think I'll just spend the next few days looking at this book over and over again and appreciating every detail.


Melissa this book will be treasured by your little girl! I love it as all of your creatuions of course.
