Here is one more layout created with the July kit from C' est Magnifique which is now available right HERE together with the add ons and others individual items.
All Items from the main kit
For this layout I decided to use a bit of white space which is unusual for me.
I will confess here that I was partly inspired in my design by a layout I had seen from the SUPER talented Trudi Harrison a while back... I cannot remember exactly which layout it was (sorry!) but I had this design in mind when I was creating this layout so THANK YOU Trudi for the inspiration. You are amazing :)
*I used a few different dies to create the frames and the vines out of the patterned paper.
* I decided not to waste the strips of paper that were cut when I trimmed the background and so I created the strips going down behind the photo.
* The Kaisercraft chipboard leaf was painted white and then I dabbed some crackle paint on it to give it an aged look.
This little girl is absolutely perfect...I am not just saying that. There are many many personal reasons she is perfect to me and although its not something I want to share in detail I want to leave you with this quote I found online which some of you might have seen before..
I need to remember that this girl right here was among the things I only ever hoped for. I HOPED to have children, I HOPED to have a little sister for my 2 year old girl..I hoped and hoped and hoped..I wished for her and she came and looking at it now, at the time I took her for granted because ...well...having children was a BREEZE for me and there were going to be many after her right? Well I learnt fast that it wasn't going to happen. This girl right here most probably will be my last..I do not foresee having another one. I am not losing hope..It just feels like the dream is getting further and further away and if it was meant to happen it would have happened by now I think..I think my baby making days have come to an abrupt end and I better get used to it.
But, what is even more amazing is having my first daughter. Now she...well..she was the biggest miracle of them all. With her came the attached stress of course of " can I have children?" because I had never had one before of course. But she made things easy for me and I did not have long to worry because she came just like a miracle from God..I pretty much thought about her and she was conceived!
This is the reason my youngest was taken for granted...because she came easy too. But if ONLY I knew then what I know now or what would follow in the years to come huh?
Have a great weekend everyone and thank you for letting me share ;) Well..you had no choice really LOL! I just blurted all that out ..LOL!
I hope you always remember what it was you hoped for..
