i lost my mojo for a few days so i needed to do a challenge that wasnt too far out of my comfort zone. i have combined two challenges here. the first one is the sketch from Pagemaps boy/girl challenge. the idea is to tranform those girly elements on a sketch like flowers and butterflies into something else. being a mum of 1 girl and 3 boys i find myself doing this all the time.
and the second challenge is for bird is the word - he/she/him/her to be used in the title.
we were so excited to finally fall pregnant with our second baby as we had so many set backs due to my husband being deployed when we wanted to start trying again and then with an upcoming deployment all the training for several months prior. when we told people at 12 weeks everyone had made the essumption that we wanted a boy as our first was a girl, or that they were too close in age ( although 27monthapart it was not close enough in our opinion), or that were we still not married. but the one thing that really stuck into my head was that she was going to be so jealous that i would struggle being on my own so much and that i had to make sure she was never left alone with the new baby and all that crazy stuff. well,they couldnt have been more wrong. she adored him ( and all the other babies we have since had) from before they were born. she is a little mini mummy. she is my big helper and with my husbnad away alot i do wonder if things would run as smootly if i didnt have her help. i put it down to her confidence and knowing no matter how many babies i bring home they all know they are all loved and nothing will change that. we have never had a problem with jealousy and my babies have only gotten closer in age.
so here is the sketch which i rotated
i saw the circle title and thought of the bike wheel which i have cut out from the paper so the title got moved to where the flourish was suppose to be. my photo was already printed out smaller so i used the gorgeous quote on the otherside. all the flowers on the sketch became birds with glossy accent in all the hearts.
so here is my page
thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.
