Gabrielle Pollacco
A Pocket Full of Kisses
 I went a little different way for my page, I went with the title of one of Meagan's and my favorite books when she was a preschooler, "A Pocket Full of Kisses" This book by Audrey Penn and another one called 'The Kissing Hand" were 2 books that really helped her through the first month of Junior Kindergarten. It's a story about a mother raccoon that helps her little shy baby by placing a kiss in her palm and telling her that whenever she finds herself getting nervous at school, she should bring her palm to her face and tell herself 'Mama loves you". 

In keeping with the idea of books, I made a pocket on the page (a denim pocket from one of her old pairs of pants) and made a whole bunch of flower stems with the names of some of her favorite books (Goodnight Moon, I Love You Stinky Face, I'll Love you Forever....etc.) and their authors and attached a BB bloom at the top of each 'stem'....then tucked all the blooms in the pocket. Now she'll have a keepsake of all her favorites to share with her babies when she grows up.

Below is a close-up of the blooms in the pocket and the next photo shows one of the stems pulled out.

You're All My Favorites

 Designer Tip: When using embellishments, group them together and where possible use groups of three- this helps to create balance and another rule a very dear scrapping friend taught me... "if you use it once, use it twice!" If you look closely at my layout you will see that I have done this in numerous ways using buttons and brads. I've repeated colours and patterns and sizes.
