Quotes and positive thoughts album

This turned out to be one of my favorite projects and it was super easy! I wanted to send my daughter out into the world with some positive thoughts and quotes to lift her spirits. I decided to put together a small album and I used journaling cards to convey the messages.

I chose a 6x8 Becky Higgins Project Life binder (I got mine at Michael's) and filled it with pocket page protectors. I've printed out various cards from several different digital designers. The ones pictured here are from Little Butterfly Wings and two different sets from Sara Gleason. I've been surprised at how many great cards I've found in my existing digi stash!

As a family, we have written notes of encouragement for Riley on the back of each card. We placed several inside the album and sent it with her. We will continue to send her cards with our written messages on the back throughout her mission.

Forgive the blurring of this photo, but the messages are personal and I didn't want to post them online. I did want to show you how it works to have the messages on the backs of the cards. She can look at them all anytime in her binder. It's like having a book of mini letters from us with beautifully illustrated quotes and positive thoughts inside.

I know she this album will mean so much to her while she is away from home and I bet it's something she will treasure her entire life!
