A new layout to share today. I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my goodies from the new CTMH Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book (consultants can order a month early!) and in the meantime I am determined to put a dent in my current stash (which has become quite ridiculous, frankly!!). So the next few layouts I'm sharing - you are likely to see some older product and a mish mash of different lines, companies, etc. I'm enjoying the challenge of using up the old! Hope you'll be inspired to do the same (I know every scrapbooker has a STASH!)
Here is my layout - the sketch is from "Once Upon a Sketch - Aug 15/11".
In the main journal box, I've quoted the lyrics from a Beach Boys song called "All I Wanna Do". The photos are of me with each of my babies when I met them. There are stories behind each of the photos - - the first photo is me & my daughter the first time I held her. She was about 12 hours old but had been born severely premature so I had to wait that long before I could hold her in my arms. The second photo is me & my son the first time I held him. We were called to the hospital a few hours after his birth to come & meet him (and we subsequently took him home the next day & proceeded to adopt him). My journalling around the scalloped circle talks about the joy I felt in each of those moments. The hidden journalling in the yellow pocket talks more about the things "I hope they know" - thus the title for the layout.
