LSHD blog hop day 7

My goodness the time has flown.

And yes, I finally finished my layout. This one is one I've taken a lot of time and thought with, and I'm extremely happy with the result. I've used the black bears pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven (ready-made embellishments available from my store).

This is the first page...

And the second page...
I made all the photo's sepia tone and faded the edges... I printed out some journalling - all about how my children really do love each other. I cut 2 different sheets of paper (unevenly) and taped them at the back to create a background for a double layout. The background was a little too busy, so I used some cream coloured cardstock to break the pattern. I almost used the background pages as a frame, and mostly put the pictures and journalling within the cream card. I used some brown and some cream coloured flowers with matching flat-backed pearls. The layout was finished off with some stitching detail in gold thread - which brought together the entire layout perfectly.

Thanks for looking, please pop over to Inga to see what she has for you today....
