Beautiful Smile

This layout is my first-of-four Kaya Challenges for the month of November. The challenge is to incorporate a bow into your layout.

This one is of my oldest daughter Nadine who can be very vain at times. So much so that when she lost her two front teeth, she was aghast! She was in tears and refused to go to school saying that she "looked funny." Mier and I had to patiently talk to her and assure her that losing her front teeth was very natural and everyone goes through it. I dug out pictures and layouts from the Internet just to show her that a lot of children have also lost their front teeth. Thank God she was finally consoled and when she went to school that day, she noticed that a number of her classmates also did not have front teeth too. Hehehe!

Title: Beautiful Smile

Journaling: You were so conscious about losing your front teeth. You didn't want to go to school because you said you "looked funny." It took a lot for Daddy and me to convince you that everybody goes through this and that what really matters is the goodness of your heart. Besides you have a beautiful smile --- with or without your front teeth. We love you!

Materials: Papers, stickers, alpha stickers, borders - Basic Grey Sugared collection; MM journaling pad; Others - ribbon
