Taking After MOM?

This post is all about my daughter, Nicole. I like to think I am crafty but she is creative. She loves to write poetry and has never quite known what to do with it once she wrote it. I thought maybe doing a scrapbook with it but it never seemed right to her. Then she tried a regular journal and the pages are stamped and decorated with small jewels or pearls not enough room for an artistic feel to go along with the poems. She wanted a blank canvas so smash books didn't quite fit and then one day I saw Simple Stories at our LSS. It is like a small 3 ring binder filled with all kinds of different pages. It seems to be a perfect fit for Nicole's journaling (poetry). I thought I would post 2 of the pages and the front of the journal on my blog for her since she doesn't have one of her own. She is definitely having fun with my stash of goodies and tools, and she is starting to collect her own stash of stuff. It is fun sharing what I know about paper crafting and stamping and seeing her take it in her own direction. What do you think? She would love to know what others think of her creative work so far.

I am entering these into a few challenges so I can share her work with others
