Well hi there...
A new layout to share with you today.


For the first time I have included photos of Brenden and I prior to Chloe. I thought it would be nice for when Chloe looks back through her albums to see what Mummy and Daddy used to look like.

The idea for this page came from Crafty Sketches monthly challenge,

The sketch having a love heart around two photos and a third outside, instantly made me think of the '1+ 1 =' of Brenden and I adding to have Chloe.

It took me a while to decide what the equation was going to equal, 1+1=1 with a picture of Chloe by herself, 1+1= You, 1+1= Family, 1+1= Perfection, etc.

My original plan was to make the heart out of lots of quilling. Quilled hearts and flowers. But I got lazy and when I saw the heart and 'LOVE' tapes in a spotlight store, I new I had found my replacement. One quilled heart still made its way onto the page though. When tidying my scrap-crap, I found the string and wanted to give the heart dimension so threw it on too plus a heart button.

I added a primary school rhyme which I thought appropriate as journalling;

Seeing as Brenden and I aren't married, I did toy with the idea of changing the words in the rhyme but decided to keep it as is and just cross out the word marriage as a subtle stab.

  2. Great take on the crafty sketch ... love your journaling .. thanks for playing !!! cheers
