Love the Sidekick

I'm posting a few of my lay-outs on the NEW Sidekick from Elizabeth Craft Designs today. This is the same as their Essential Planner Line....but mini.  I decided to use my Sidekick to journal about the COVID19 shutdowns, work at home, etc.

Here's my "dashboard" or cover page:

A page I made about memes.

And of course, about my doggie!

The supplies I used for these pages is below.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
