And The Story Begins

 This week the challenge on UKScrappers was set by Nerlly and its been a bit tricky for me to meet all the criteria. The theme is Anticipation – scrap something I have been / was excited about and make an embellishment using something from the event. Well that was the bit that had me stumped, I just didn't really have anything to hand that I could use.

I then came up with the idea of scrapping one of my old photo’s for the baby albums I am making for my kids. I used  my August LE kit from My Creative Scrapbook and this is what I ended up with.


I cant believe I have actually scrapped this photo as I have had it hidden away for over 13 years!!  I was only 20 weeks pregnant with our twins when this was taken and I already felt enormous. It is the last photo of me during the pregnancy as I wouldn’t have anymore taken as I got bigger – and I got a lot bigger!!

The embellishment I made includes a picture from my first scan at 12 weeks which was when the twin pregnancy was confirmed. I love that scan picture –Amy and Tony look like they are sleeping in bunk beds. That is how they stayed through the entire pregnancy, with Tony on the top and Amy on the bottom.

This butterfly is from the Timeless Treasures rub-ons by Kaiser Craft.


The other criteria from the challenge was to use a clock or clock hands and to use something I didnt like and alter it.  The black floral paper in the upper circle is my altered piece. I was just plain black and white so I chalked it to match in with  the colour scheme.

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Love that layout, think I would struggle with that criteria too but you've done a great job of it. :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment I do appreciate it :)
