This layout started as a way to use lots of scraps! It ended up paying tribute to one of our family's most important and enjoyable pasttimes -- reading. The tag inside the library pocket list books my dd enjoys having read to her along with a note I have jotted down for her on the back. Thanks for looking!
R E A D, "Once Upon a Time"
Journaling on first tag:
"There was a little girl and her family who loved to read. They lived happily ever after."

Note on back of tag:
We have read stories to you since the day you were born. Reading is an important pasttime in our family. The books we read together connect us as a family, and introduce us to a world of adventure, fantasy, and fun. In a world filled with books, you will never be alone.
I (love) U. Mommy
