She's here again with another page! Its one from our retreat as I didn't get anything actually finished at the crop on Saturday (despite.. ahem... plenty of planning!)
The page was inspired by a sketch from Shimelle using 2 photos top left. Its not something I would have done without the sketch but I will definitely use it again. The papers (This and That Graceful) make me want to lick the screen and I was really pleased to finally put that wonderful Jenni Bowlin butterfly to perfect use.
The chipboard title was perfect to sum up how we felt on the day these photos were taken over 6 years ago. I was VERY VERY pregnant with Louis and we went on a Babymoon (pre-baby final holiday as a couple) to Bradford-Upon-Avon. We were excited and nervous and had absolutely no idea just how much our lives were going to be turned upside down.
And yes, if you can manage to read the journalling, it does say that I had a fight in a car park. I blame the hormones.... I went into Mummy Tiger mode.... Management was NOT impressed.
This was the first time I used washi tape on a layout!
Despite a cracking headache on Saturday, it was lovely to see Sarah again from S J Crafts and actually stroke, touch and sniff her shop. We hatched a plan for a series of projects involving the new Everyday Eclectic collection which I'm very excited about.
Talking of hatching and life being amazing, we finally got to release our painted lady butterflies. I admit, I was quite emotional. They had lived with us since they were caterpillars and had become part of our family.. sniff. This was an amazing experience and in Louis' own words "the best birthday present EVER!"
How beautiful is Bob? Bob was the largest of the caterpillars and the first of the four to hatch. He was quite happy to sit on Louis' finger while they had a chat about going off into the big wide world. Bob was less impressed when Bella started shrieking loudly when she tried to cuddle him and he fluttered his wings.
Bye for now
