Bloom and Grow

Here is another layout from my pages in progress pile. This is another beautiful kit designed by my friend Tami. I don't remember what Disney photos she used on this, maybe Tinkerbell, but I used it for my pregnancy photos from my son. Once I started showing in my pregnancy, I was photographed wearing a white shirt and black pants in relatively the same place in my house.

Love the dry embossed shapes and bright flowers in this kit! Also came with a bit of bling and velvet ribbon.

I used a Stampin' up floral stamp in a stamp set that coordinates with the jewelry tag punch. I love that set. Then I stamped the number of months I was pregnant. Attached it with flower Making Memory brads.

So once I knew I decided these photos were going on this page kit, I had to decide what my title was going to be. A friend at a crop helped me come up with Bloom and Grow since there were flowers on the page. I thought it was a good fit. 

The reason this page had not been completed however was the journaling. I didn't know what to write. Finally I thought about what it felt like to be pregnant. This gave me the jumping off point I need to tell my story. 

Then I struggled on where to put it. I had more than a few sentences to say, so I was going to need a bit of real estate. I opted for the strips of paper at the bottom and mimicked it at the top of the page. I think the top strip gave it a more finished look.

So that is another one down. Hope to have even more for you soon! to just get them into albums :)
