I took my inspiration from the colours in this photo... the blue of the tablecloth, the red of the lobsters (I went with the lightest ones and the hearts on the paper towel and the fact that the lady is taking a photo with a phone...
Here is what I came up with. I used this Let's Scrap Sketch.
Here is my layout.
I used papers from the Carte Bella range which were perfect.
I took the photos with my phone...
My journalling says....
I don't think there are words to describe the feeling you get when you see your Grandies for the first time. Spencer and Paige are just perfect... button noses and pouty lips. Ten perfect fingers and ten perfect toes. It was love at first sight.
On the back I have written...
Our first glimpse of the twins was as they were being wheeled from the theatre to the neonatal ICU. Dr Greef stopped so we could get a quick look at them and a photo. It was such an emotional time for all of us and to finally see them was just so overwhelming I can't really explain it all... the whole range of emotions from wanting to cry as I realised my own little boy was a dad himself and the fact that that creates another change for me to absolute wonder at these two beautiful little humans before me who are a complete miracle and everything in between. Now as I look back I don't really remember so much about that first encounter it was so rushed and so emotional. We finally got to go and see them in neonates on Thursday night and we spent some time with them. I don't think that sense of wonder at seeing a new life will ever change. It was absolutely love at first sight.
Here are some close-ups.
I created the splats with Distress Ink by TH in Chipped Sapphire. I layered up the journalling cards behind the two little photos as a photo mat.
I coloured some seam binding ribbon with my distress inks in Wild Honey, and added that down the side.
I added lace under the little people strip and I also filled a couple of the hearts with glitter... one for each baby :D
The flowers are from Prima, Petaloo and my stash..
Here is a close up of the journalling on the little card.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look. I love your visits.
