They make a great inexpensive hostess gift, party favor, or last minute thing to throw into the beach bag before heading out.
It only took me one afternoon to do the entire project and now I have these thin journals to keep in the car to record family days with Oliver and the Hubs. My wish for you this weekend is that you are able to make many happy summertime memories and record them for always.
What do you think? Are they noteworthy? I will see you crazy kids on Monday.
