Journaling is so important in scrapbooking - it gives it that special little extra touch that let's those around you or in the future know about you, your life and your thoughts. Today's Layout of the Day does this perfectly and is definitely a page that will be treasured for a long time! Congratulations goes out to lemonyr and her layout titled "Puppy":

The journaling reads:

No fancy name for him, just plain old “puppy”. I bought him for Jarrett when we were dating because he had to go to Philadelphia for work so often. This was a little piece of home for him to take so that he would know how much I loved him & missed him. Puppy was small enough for him to tote around, on every trip. Jarrett would put him on the dashboard of the car while he was driving and place him in the hotel room so that he could see him all the time. Of all the things that he needed for his trips, puppy was the most important by far. Puppy has worked his magic on Christian now too! The first time he laid eyes on puppy, he grabbed a hold of him and gave him a kiss. Oh, how sweet! Christian was going to spend the night at my parent’s house and wanted to take puppy along with him. This was too adorable. It just made me think of all the times that Jarrett has snuggled him when he was away from home. Both of my boys have been able to feel the love that I have for them through this little ball of fur & stuffing. Puppy is priceless to our family. He could never, ever be replaced. Yes, I could go to the store & buy another one, but it just wouldn’t be our Puppy. His little nose is ripped off & he’s a little worn around the edges, but it is from years of love that he got this way. Puppy is no ordinary stuffed animal. He is a symbol of love, affection, & how much we mean to each other."

congratulations Melanie! :)
