Journaling: As a mom, I know I'm no way perfect. I admit that I have many shortcomings. I'm not the disciplinarian type of mom. In a way, I'm very lax to both Jigs and Dannah. And as a working mom, I don't have much time to spend with them except during weekends and holidays. Very seldom do I cook for them or prepare for their everyday needs. But one thing is sure, I love the both of them with all my heart, with all my soul. I do want the best for both of them that everyting I do is for their sake.
This is for their monthly challenge to use red, white and blue in a LO:
Materials used: Bazzill and Stemma cardstock, Scenic Route pp, alpha stickers, ribbon, button, felt star, Jenni Bowlin journaling card, brad
Journaling: In loving memory of Lolo Pisting and Lola Sinyang, Nanay's parents, and our other lolos and lolas, we would visit the cemetery every Nov. 1 of every year to say our prayers and light some candles for the repose of their souls. Our little ones would gather melted candles and form them into balls, a tradition that never dies!
