What a year that was! On the Once Upon A Sketch blog there is a challenge to scrap a page about a memorable year. I chose 1998 the year I gave birth to our twins. This is the fabulous sketch :
And here is my page :
Not the most flattering photo of me but one I love for all the right reasons. During my pregnancy I became so huge I began to doubt that there were only 2 babies in there! The journaling reads “ On Friday 31st July 1998 I gave birth to Twins. At 4.03pm Amy Patricia Morrison was born followed a minute later, at 4.04pm by Anthony Terence Morrison. Both babies were healthy and happy after being delivered at exactly 37 weeks”
I used Bo Bunny Alissa which I have had in my stash pile for a fair while. I like the colour combo of the papers which I thought represented a girl/boy LO well, and I converted the photo into black and white so that it co-ordinated better. There is something very relaxing about cutting out flowers by hand and I spent a quiet evening do just that with these flowers.
I really enjoyed putting this page together as it goes hand in hand my personal mission to scrap older photo’s and use up some papers that I have been stroking for far too long! I love the sketch too, so Im thinking I may do another page with it using a photo of me when our first son Joe was born.
Thanks for stopping by,
