Gestational Diabetes

Leira says, KAYA!

This layout was something that was waiting to be finished. I wanted to finish it and yet I couldn't think of the perfect journaling. It's a bit weird though that this doesn't have any photos in it.

Dearest Baby,
In the blink of an eye you stole my heartand changed my life forever.Becoming your mother has made me complete.I no longer worry about my needs. My only concern is your happiness. I hope that one dayyou have a child of your own so you will know this incredible joy. You are worth every pain, pricks and discomfort.
Love, Mom

Leirs, I think this is a perfect example of ephemera. I wish I had saved all the scrappable paraphernalia when I was having my KiDS. I love that all there is no photo, this LO tells alot. I love it.

Ohmygosh, Leirs! *bowing* Bow ako sa yo! Grabe, may syringe talaga! Ang galing! Pangarap ko to do bulky layouts like this pero yun lang nga butones at brads na mauumbok naiinis na ako na bulky. Hehe.

Galing! Love the theme and the topic! Hay, you really captured what emotions we have as a mom.

Uy! Tsaka ginamit mo yung pang-cover na sheet ng Basic Grey! Galing! Hehe. Tinago ko din yan, lalo na nung na-test ko na acid-free din sya.

Great! Galing-galing!

Lee & Nina-- thanks so much sa comments nyo.. iniisip ko kasi talaga dati kung dapat ba lagyan ng pic pero Philbert wasn't willing to take my photo of me injecting myself. medyo matagal ko bago nagawa yang LO na yan.. kung di pa dahil sa challenge di pa ako talaga ma push na upuan at tapusin..

Leirs! Love this! truly ephemera! alam mo, itinago ko rin yung last 2 preg tests ko pero sa sobrang tago di ko na alam san ko nalagay!...parang gusto ko tuloy maghalukay at ng magaya ang LO mo. good job.

Leirs, you opened my eyes to the real meaning of ephemera. Pag nababanggit kasi yung word na yun, ang dating sa akin "vintage". Pero yung LO mo, very "now". Isa pa, identify ako dun sa journaling mo. Ramdam ko yun, sistah. Great job!
