This LO is from a pattern from Mosiac Moments. They have their own dies and all the patterns are based around 1 inch blocks. Hard to explain but check out their website. Text is cut with the Cricut in sparkle paper and I used it to cut all the 1 in squares. The middle sectons are MM dies.
The "Pull" tab came to me as I was trying to figure out how to journal all these memories. Behind the LO I placed foam tape to act as wall & a stop for a piece of cardstock that I typed on and is appox 4" x 7". It pulls up smoothly and can be re-inserted into the channel.
The journaling tells how his 1st Christmas was spent in CO for a mo where he took his first steps (at 10 mos) to get the that crazy patchwork donkey that I had to carry along with him, diaper bags, purse, and a bag of gifts thru 3 airports inc O'Hare. He also met Santa (my uncle Bob) and the potato was something his Aunt Peg put into his stocking and he teethed on it all day.
