I also wanted to play along with Sketchabilities, I love their sketches and here is the latest one.
Here is my layout.
Here is how I solved the case.
Scheme - the colours are all there.
Evidence - Hearts, lace, mesh, flowers, stamps, penwork and mixed media background.
Testimony - freewrite.
Along the top of the circle I have written:
Picture Perfect! I will never forget this moment.
My journalling on the back of the layout says:
Someone asked a question on another site recently and that got me thinking and the question was "what photos do you most regret not having?" for me that is that I have no photos of me pregnant with either of my kids, and that has always bothered me and the fact that I don't have lots of pics of my kids when they were in the hospital and also growing up. I do know that a lot of that stems from the fact that back then a camera was a luxury and printing photos was expensive so I took photos with great care and I have one or two from each birthday, school and holidays and that is it. Also I wasn't a scrapbooker back then so maybe it wasn't something I gave much thought to.
So... when I found out that Lin was pregnant I vowed that I would document their (Clint, Lin and the twins) journey to the best of my ability :) and I have... and for me one of the reasons for doing this is that in time to come moments like this one will be forgotten, well they will remember how wonderful it was when Spencer came home and the twins were together again but it will be just that... the day that they were reunited. Now when they see this pic they will remember just how special that moment was and how happy they were to have their family all together and that feeling will come flooding back.
When Spencer and Paige grow up they will also be able to look back through their albums to see the whole story and they will know just how special and how loved they are.
I used my new Finnabair butterfly stencil with some gesso and while it was still wet I sprinkled it with some peach glitter and left it to dry overnight. Looks a bit yellow in this pic though :(
I did loads of stamping in peach and brown and added some flowers in all the colours to tie it all together. The title is Lush sticker alphabets.
The top is washi tape and also stickers from the co-ordinating sticker sheet.
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look and thank you all for the comments that you leave. I take great delight in reading each and every one of them.
Have a great weekend what ever you are doing.
