Unexpected

This is my entry for the Polka Dot challenge over at Frosted Designs.


I used an envelope for the rest of the sonar pictures, report & my journaling.

I used textured paint, mist & chalk to make these hearts.

I have been sick for a couple of weeks & had no clue what was wrong. It started with a cold & I was in bed for a week, just as I started feeling better it started with what seemed to be a tummy bug. I went to see the doctor on June 15th & told him what was going on, he did a pregnancy test & to my surprise the test was positive! This was a huge shock for me & I spent the next couple of days in tears. I went for my 1st sonar on June 20th just to make sure all is ok.

I have terrible morning sickness but I'm feeling better & hope to catch up on all my scrapping.

    ONE PHOTO CHALLENGE ~ NSD13#25, 5-9-13


          The Challenge:

    'NSD13#25
     One Photo on a Single Page Challenge

    Very welcome to my One Photo on a Single Page Challenge!!
    I enjoyed it so much putting this together as a Challenge for our NSD in May happenings, so here we go:

    QUOTE
    Find inspiration from this quote… it can be any word that rocks your boat ~ use your imagination!!
    I’d like to be as good as
    my dog thinks I am.
    To be as rich as
    my kids think I am.
    And be as beautiful as
    my Mother thinks I am.

    PHOTO
    You may use only one Photo for this Challenge.

    HEART
    I would like you to stay as close to the sketch as possible.
    The heart can be cut out from paper, painted or drawn in by doodling.

    JOURNALING
    Handwritten

    ITEMS TO BE USED
    Wool, Yarn, Fibres or Felt
    Washy Tape
    Anything with or that resembles Chevron
    Flowers ~ at least 1 Handmade Flower
    Inks/Paint for the spatters all over the page
    Doodling {also if chosen to doodle the heart}

    The Sketch ~ 5-9-13 '

    Here is my take on the sketch: Mom & Me

    I made my own washy tape & you can find the tutorial here. Instead of using paint/inks for splatters all over the page I used wax crayons for this effect (the green dots here & there). I used my heart stamp for the large heart & white paint to stamp with.

    To Be Or Not To Be - Sketch 5-22-12

    Here is this weeks sketch over at Let's Scrap
    Here is my take on the sketch - To Be Or Not To Be



    These are pictures of my daughter Shanice. The reason I did this layout is because we have the discussion about modeling almost everyday. One day she wants to be a model & the next day she has changed her mind!

    • Use a Let’s Scrap card sketch to make a LO
    • One word title
    • Pearls or bling
    • Use your handwriting for a quote or journaling about your mom on your LO. (see tips)
    • Sew, either by hand or machine
