Hello Baby

This is another page for Scrap Whispers, using their sketch from Challenge 120. I'm combining it with Workout 62 at ScrapFIT which was to use XOXO on a layout.

I'm not one for lovey-dovey layouts, but I dug out a photo of my children when my daughter was just a few days old and planned to stitch a heart around it. They loved each other then, even if they can't stand each other these days (now aged 11 and 14).

Once I'd chosen my background paper, which has those XOXO's, I decided to change the heart for a double circle to match the 'stamps' on the paper. Then I moved the circle across so that I could curve the title around the circle.

All in all, the finished page isn't a lot like the sketch, but that's just the way it went. There wasn't a good place on the page for my journalling so I made a pocket behind the photo.
