This photo was taken on Xmas Day 2006 after the annual xmas meal at Karl's. Insisted that the Hubby took the photo specifically. I had never actually recorded the ups and downs of being pregnant and had also never done a LO on anything about me. The LO in SS really struck me. From the photo to the journaling. It was inspiration to record a little something on being pregnant.
The photo edges were distressed the same way as the "2 of a Kind" layout but this time the distress effect was much clearer. The title was created by sticking alpha stickers on clear page pebbles. My only problem was that the square page pebbles were kinda yellowish in colour. Dunno why cos the pack said clear. Hehe maybe yellow with age as I bought them in 2004. The journaling was fun to do. The wavy lines were drawn out using the Chatterbox Journaling Genie template (Funky - see below). I would love to collect all 6 of these templates but have only managed to find only one so far. I have the vanishing ink pen that goes with this template range but have not as yet dared to use the pen on my layouts for fear that the ink won't disappear altogether. I still rely on my handy pencil and eraser.
