It's Time

No, your eyes do not deceive you.  It is indeed a picture of me in labour.  Things were going so very well at this point but then of course things took a bit of a diversion.  However the cause of the misery at the time is now a strapping almost 7 year old and aside from a funny shaped ear, he has no lasting damage but I vowed not to go into hospital for a birth again!

This is one of the layouts I completed at our recent retreat.  I was inspired by this pin but I went with an A4 size to change things up a bit.  I've used the stunning Echo Park "For The Record 2 - Tailored" collection because the colours were so perfect.  

I added some flowers made from the Tim HoltzTattered Florals dies and layered them up with some buttons.  My favourite edge punch and some stickers from the collection were all that was needed to finish off.

I love the way the design turned out and I love these papers.  I officially hereby declare Echo Park as my favourite manufacturers because their collections are so gorgeous and yet oh so very very versatile with absolutely wonderful colours.

Bye for now


  1. What a brilliant photo to have, although I am sure it took you awhile to feel that way!
    Beautiful layout and I feel that way about Echo Park too. xxx

  2. Great layout - and someone had the presence of mind to take a photo of the moment ... I'm not sure I would :) The choice of papers and embellishments are perfect. Have an enjoyable weekend, Elizabeth xx

  3. They really are perfect papers for that picture!
