Journaling is tucked away but reads, "I was very sick as a child and was in and out of hospitals for surgeries. On the way to the hospital for a surgery we stopped at Kaufmann's in Charleston. I saw this Gund bear and wanted him so bad. But dad said no and that was that. But when I woke up from surgery Dad had gone back and bought it for me. That was 30 some odd years ago and Gund is still will me. He isn't in the best condition, his nose is falling off, his fur is filthy, but he is mine and I love him." So here it is,
All items on here, minus the jewels, is from sassafrass lass.
As an aside too all of this I was thinking about how this gift was such a big deal to me that I can remember the details of the day after all this time. I am going to ask my dad about what he remembers (he is on a cruise ship sailing from Rio de Janerio in Brazil to the states at the moment.) I wonder what he remembers about it. Now that I am a parent, I could see not necessarily remembering it. I mean his young child was getting ready to be put under and operated on, his thoughts were probably elsewhere. But me, the kid, doesn't remember being scared or worried, just wanting that bear and then getting it.

Anyway, I think this picture is very sweet. But the story behind it is pee in your pants funny. Literally- sort of. When she is really tired but won't nap Jon encourages to rest by using him as a bed. So she climbed up and fell asleep on Jon's back watching tv. I was at my craft table working and saw this sweet picture and grab my camera and snapped away. A few minutes after I took the picture I hear Jon say, "Come here now and get Bella." I knew immediately what happend. She pee'd all over him. It was SO funny. So when I look at the picture, I can't help but laugh.
The papers are Americana Craft. flowers are prima with stickles. The bling is recollections (no idea why the upper one looks like it is missing jewels- weird.) Border pieces are bazzill as is the cardstock.
