City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 319 ~ The Book of Love

How do you measure LOVE? Especially LOVE for your children?
If you ask me, my answer would be.....

A parent's LOVE is Whole,
No matter how many times divded.

I only wish my children understand.

I made a BOOK of LOVE sometime ago for Clare, when she started a new page of her life.


this BOOK of LOVE is in the photo journal form....


 it started with a a few of her baby photos....


 and then Clare as a young lady....


the next few pages is her life in Singapore, New York and Las Vegas, and then the day I sent her to college, and photo of her graduation recital....


I leave some blank journal card for her to write down her thoughts......


and then the important day when she is officially on her own....



I do have a graduation speech by Bill Gates, meant for the graduate to read by somehow, a little doggie seems to be interested too (see his little foot on the top left corner?)
 


and then I filled up lots of pockets with journal card, she can continue with the journaling on her own
 

my daughter probably do not have a lot of art supply at home so this BOOK of LOVE comes with glue stick and other embellishment for her to get creative
 

here's my BOOK of LOVE for my kid...
 

do you have one? come share with us at
