Gammy & Gunnie - SUYS

So I am finally sharing a layout that has actually been finished for over a week now.
It just kept floating around my desk, getting moved to and fro, as I just wasn't 100% happy with it. To be honest I still feel that something might be missing.

Gammy & Gunnie

This month I discovered a new-to-me challenge blog, Show Us Your Stuff, which provides a piece of inspiration (sketch/mood board) and asks that you use a hand made item on the page. Octobers challenge is the sketch below.

I LOVE this sketch. It was an absolute MUST for this month. The handmade item included is a flair button from APOCD. 

It was this section in the picture above that was giving me the drama while completing the page, not sure if it is still missing something...

The journaling has been hand written with a white pen and tells the story of the nicknames and love from my aunt and uncle to my daughter Chloe. I thought it was about time I started scrapping the other people in my kiddos lives. Many of them are just as important if not more. And they are two extremely loved little people.

The flower is an old blossom from Bella Blvd and all the papers are also Bella Blvd, the Family Forever collection, rather fitting hey.

Thanks for popping in. Hope you like the page. I intend to create many more on Chloe and Jayces extended family, even the non related ones.
XoXoX Nicole.
