Remember the Little Things - Etsy Inspired Challenge #106

Hello all! This week I have been realizing how fast time goes by, especially when you are raising children who seem to grow in new ways every day. So, I was inspired by my feelings and our featured Etsy shop this week, Pegasus Maiden, to create a little journal (perfect for tucking in my purse) to help me remember the little things that my children are doing at this age. Although I feel now that I will probably never forget these cute and special memories, I think that sometimes the little details get forgotten and sometimes those are the most important.



I was inspired by all the pretty peacock hair accessories in Pegasus Maiden's shop to dig into my BoBunny Peacock Lane stash and create this journal. This journal was super easy to create because I simply embellished the Noteworthy Journaling Cards. It is already filled with a variety of coordinating patterns/journal cards for writing on, so all I did was add an extra piece under the peacock transparency, the word remember, and 'the little things' sticker to make this journal the perfect fit for me. I know I will be buying more of these Journaling Cards to create other journals and they would also make for a great mini album if you have some small wallet size pictures to use up.

One of the first 'little things' I wrote about was my youngest son's adorable mispronunciations like 'smarshmallows' and 'aminals'.

Okay, now for the details of the Etsy Inspired Challenge! You can play along for your chance to win some great prizes! Simply...
