I also wanted to to a layout for the Page Drafts 'Love is Everywhere' Challenge.
I used this sketch :) I really love working with Em's sketches.
AND... this is what I came up with.
Here is how I solved the case.
Scheme - The colours are all there.
Evidence - Something sheer (the yellow flower), flowers, floral pattern (yellow banner).
Testimony - IW words - sleep, light, tranquility.
The quote on the front of the layout says:
A baby is Gods way of saying that the world should go on.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
I have never considered myself to be much of a baby or even a kiddie person and I always felt very awkward and clueless with my own babies, and truth be told I was a little nervous about the arrival of these two but it was completely unfounded I feel completely at ease with them and, this time I instinctively know what to do with and for them, and I love that I get to spend so much time with them. I can't believe how much they have already changed in the two weeks that they have been home.
I took these photos of them on the 21 Feb and they were just one month old and Spencer had just come home. It was overwhelming to see them bonding again after a two week separation. I just love these photos just changed and fed and already Spence was fast asleep. Paige had just found her hands and I am not sure if she was more fascinated by them or by him, she was quite content to lie there with him sleeping against her and observe this new world around her.
SO...here's what I know for sure. Life will never be the same again for Clint and Lin, sleep as they knew it is a thing of the past for the next couple of years or so at least and, what sleep they do get with be light with one eye and ear open always. They will face more challenges than they thought possible but they will do it together and the rewards from these two little beings will be incalculable. I am so excited to be a part of their lives and I can't wait to watch them grow up. We are truly blessed as a family :)
Here are some close ups.
I used some heavy duty watercolour paper for this one and I have to say I love working on it. :) I wet the paper and added some watercolour paint and then let it dry... minimal warping - I love it. I did some subtle stamping using a script and also a scratched stamp and my shimmery teal gelato.
I added some builders tape and also used the teal gelato on the LOVE title... gelatos are the best.
Added some more stamping using a Prima sewn circle stamp. The hearts were cut and embossed and I added the quote and pearls.
How precious are these two babies... so much love for them. I added the flowers and voila... page complete.
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look. I appreciate your visits and I love to read your comments :)
Have a great weekend I am in for some Yummy times TWO overload.
