Here is the sketch, designed by Michelle van Wyk, that we had to work with. 

This is how I interpreted the sketch. 

I used the Penelope Dee papers designed by Glenda Viljoen and they are so lovely to work with. I have sort of followed the sketch and the photos I used are of my beautiful daughter just one week before our precious little mite was born. Here are some close ups of my page. 

did some Distress Stain smooching on the page in a few places and also added some splats. There was also some fussy cutting and I like to ink and distress all of my edges for a more vintage feel. 

I coloured the flowers with watered down Distress Paint and the same paint was used to paint the title and the little hearts.

The title and the hearts once dry were covered in glossy accents and Distress Glitter... I LOVE Distress anything. 

My Journalling on the back of the layout says.

Stormie - It seems like just yesterday that I was this big with you. I can't believe that my little girl is about to become a mother herself and I am in awe of the way you have approached this whole new chapter of your life. You are self assured and composed and so organised, you know exactly what you want and how you are going to get it. Everything is already prepared for this new little being to join your family and you are excited to meet her. If she turns out to be half the person you are she will be amazing and can't wait to be be Glan to #3 :D 

I know you can't wait to get your body back and if I know you you have a plan for that too but this is such a special time when the two of you share one body and that closeness will never be there again so enjoy the last few days of it.

I just want you to know how proud I am of you and I can't wait for this next part of our journey and I will always be there to help you - whatever form that takes. I want you to know that how you feel about this baby of yours is how I feel about you. There is no greater love <3

I also made a card from some of the left over paper.

The card measures 15 x 15 cms and the watercolour piece 14 x 14 cms. I smooched the Worn Lipstick and Twisted Citron onto it and left it to dry, I love the effect you get from this technique. The edges were inked too. 

A strip of the butterfly paper and one of the little strips from another. As I didn't use the lace on my layout I used it here. The 'You are Awesome" was fussy cut and popped up on foam tape and the flowers added. Lastly I fussy cut one of the butterflies and added it and added the recipients name.

Thank you so much for stopping bye to take part in our blog hop, I am the last visit so next stop is back to Let's Scrap Sketches I hope you have enjoyed it. Watch this space to see who wins the RAK from me.

Till next time - Happy Scrapping!
