New Life, New Love

Roxannee says, KAYA!

This photo was taken on the first day of the first month of 2001. Incidentally, Ethan was one day old at the time! His Dad held him in the car on our way home from the hospital, we fondly called him Neo as it means "new". I covered my title and journalling with vellum to create a different effect...I used foam adhesives under the brads to lift up and accentuate the "picket fence". I enjoyed making this layout!


Sub title: ~ one day old 01.01.2001~

Journaling (on the side):
Our Neo Isn't it amazing how someone like you so tiny, so fragile, so delicate reminds us of the love that we share. It's only now that you're small we could hold you in our hands but always remember that our hearts will hold you forever. Always, Daddy and Mommy.

(below):
Daddy's HANDS might be too BIG to hold you right now; but his HEART is much, much BIGGER loving you from the very start.

Materials Used:
Flavia scrapbook paper for the base and 2nd layer, Cardstock (metallic orange), Craft Stuff paper in stone and metallics (bronze and pearl), brass and black brads, plain vellum paper, Bostik Glu-Tac, Scotch acid free glue, foam adhesives from Spotlight, Fiskars eyelets, eyelet setter, satin brown string. Fonts - Aquiline for the title and subtitle, Antique type for the
journal.

Techniques used:
-layering
-eyelet setting
-brads setting

About ME:
Hi I am Roxannee, 30 a Mom of 2 gorgeous boys Ethan (6) and Ashton (7 months) and wife to a wonderful guy named Ronald (oh I am sooooo in love)... I had been planning on scrapbooking since my first born was still a bub but couldn't get the hang of it...so when I had baby number 2, as the photos keep on piling up and clogging my hard drive, I decided to really get on with the cropping! I realized that scrapping
is not just preserving and creating memories but could be therapy too, I feel relaxed and comforted by it at the end of a hectic day. I am also crazy about cross stich, cake decorating, knitting, beading, card making and photography. Could you imagine the craft stuff I have
in the cupboard? It drives my hubby nuts!

The simplicity of the design has helped to extenuate and complement the natural beauty of the verse.
