Its time for another challenge at Lulupu and this fortnight the DT is taking inspiration from the store's new logo. The challenge is to use atleast 4 colours from the logo and also use a pennant. Head over to check all the rules and also the huuuugeeee array of new products in the Lulupu store.
A while ago, I ordered some gorgeous lace from Alacraft and badly wanted to use it. Pretty much that was how this layout came to life. The matted photo led to several layers of PP behind it and then I started wondering what kind of a background to give it! Working backwards.... totally crazy! First I tried an A4 bg and somehow it didn't work well, then another mixed media bg but it became too busy. Finally on my third attempt, managed to get close to the look I was after.
My layout is based on the June Once Upon a Sketch. I admire Nadia's work and love reading through her blog for inspiration. This is my way of thanking you Nadia for being an inspiration and sharing your work, bringing together so many talented scrappers and providing a platform for many like me to learn and join the fun.
My journaling is attached on a sheet of paper behind the layout. This photographs was taken a week after my little one came back from hospital and I finally mustered the courage to document it only now. Here is a jist of the journaling that I am willing to share -
For me the best things in life are those felt from the heart - those special memories that warm your heart and bring a smile to your face. Im grateful to God to have given me many such memories and ask for many more through you. I will always hold these dear to my heart and cherish them. My dear darling baby 'S', you've touched my life in more ways than you can ever imagine.
Also playing alongwith,
