Share the love

I had no idea that I could love another child so much, until my second daughter arrived.  She was long awaited, it took many years of Secondary Infertility and miscarriages but she finally arrived - my Christmas Miracle - on the 9th of December 2008.

For each holiday I did a photo shoot of my girls together.  I was so very happy to have two gorgeous girls that I wanted to share them with all my friends and family.

Pocket Pages are a great way to showcase several photos of an event and Tanya Leigh Designz has some fabulous designs that can be used to accent your pages.

I used the Love Me Project Life Cards and trimmed them to fit in each pocket.  Then I placed the photos and carefully added the embellies.  I trimmed the doilies so they looked real and fit under my pictures. I cut out the smaller embellies and adhered them with double-sided tape - I added some gems here and there.

A heart embellie with a gem

A photo tab and a little love embellie.  I distressed the edges of my photos for a soft effect.

Adding a meaning to your page is a great way to embellish.  This one was trimmed from the sheet and adhered to the photo.  I has a lovely aged look.

The heart embellie was trimmed and then had a gem added, the sparrows were adhered with a staple and came from my stash.

Calendars are a fabulous way to add a date to a page.  This one has a splash of colour and a gem added to the date.  I distressed the edge and added a tab to the edge.  Underneath is a post card that comes in the pack.  I crumpled it up for texture.

I layered several different papers in this pocket, including the doily which I fussy cut.  I also cut out a tiny flower and put a gem in the centre.

I love adding quotes on my layouts, and this one is perfect! I added a tab and two embellies that I cut out and added gems to.

Here's another pocket with several layers, a doily and a tab that I added gems too.
