Sunday

I had some time to participate in the Once Upon A Sketch Challenge. A sketch and a special birthday. Well, my special birthday was the one of my son, 5 months ago. 


The sketch for this layout looks like this: 


There is hidden journaling behind the photo. It says: We have waited so long for this birthday. First, I could not get pregnant, then the miscarriage in Sept 2010. Finally, 7 months later, I was pregnant again. But in the next 9 months, I had to be hospitalized 3 times, each time we feared that we would lose our baby. Then the traumatic birth with the ambulance and an emergency caesaria. Finally, Michi was here and totally health! 


Here is a close-up of the handmade flower:


Here, I played with Fabscraps: First I chalked it, then I misted it for additional glimmer. 


For the papers, I used Pink Paislee London Market.

Thanks for stopping by.
All the best, 
Elisabeth
