For my project, I have been working on something that will likely be my favorite album that I've ever made. My little son, only 4, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on Sept 12, 2011. The worst news a mother ever wants to hear is that not only is your baby sick, but that it is something that will not go away. I made a not-quite mini album to record the journey from discovery to coping, and it has hidden pockets and journaling spots everywhere! As soon as I decidedI would do this, the Simple Stories Destinations paper collection came to mind as the perfect supply to use.
For a truly different type of Destination, take a look:
Book cover is simply chipboard with beautiful pattern paper and embellishments.

I am so proud of not only my son, and this project, but for me actually scrapping this. My son is so young, he won't remember the how or when or why. This is a gift for him. He's an amazing little boy, and I hope he will see through this just how special he is to us, and just how far we will go to keep him safe and well and loved.
So hop on, everyone! Enjoy, and have fun! Here's your path:
