This layout was for a challenge on the Bo Bunny blog, the challenge was to use journaling on your layout (and that is good amount of journaling not just the name, place and date type of journaling!) and to use stitching on your layout.

I decided to do a 'Favourites' layout.  I am supposed to do one of these for each of the kids every year as I love the idea of keeping a record of thier favourites and how they change over the years, but....I have not been very good at keeping up with it!  I think the last ones I did were at 5 and 7 years!  So I will do one for Christopher soon and then make sure I keep it up for thier next birthdays, maybe if I write it in my diary I will remember! :)

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper : One Nation, Old Glory, United, Sparkler/ Liberty
Cardstock : Coordinating Double Dot Wild Berry Dot
Rub ons : Liberty
Brads : Liberty 
American Crafts Thickers and Remarks stickers
EKSuccess Bracket Edge punch
Martha Stewart Iron Gate Edge Punch
Embroidery Thread

I hope everyone is having a lovely romantic valentines!  I am just off to go and cuddle whilst watching a movie ;)
