Fiskars February Inspiration Challenge - Siblings

Today's challenge on the Fiskars ANZ blog was a perfect way for me to record special moments between my two youngest children. I had the perfect photo of the two of them when they first met to play with also.

Some of you may remember the lovely bunch of flowers that were sent to me by the Fiskars Ambassador and Head Office.

Well I had mentioned that I was going to keep the paper from the flowers to scrap with as it was so yummy. I finally got to play with some of it on this layout. It matched perfectly with the Heidi Grace Urban Acres Flocked Dots paper. I loved mixing up the media in this one and love how it turned out. So much fun thinking outside the box.

So here's what I created:

Layout - Big Sister

Journalling Reads:
"When we found out we were having another baby, we weren't sure how you would take not being the centre of attention. You were the youngest and very cheeky for 18months. You also didn't like to share and liked to be boss of the house. We bought you a baby doll and pram to help you gt used to the fact there was a new baby coming. You hated the doll and pushed the pram around with Woofy, your dog in it instead. We really didn't know what to expect when you came in to meet your new sister for the first time. We needed to not have worried... You welcomed her with open arms and a big cuddle."

Products used: Heidi Grace PP - Urban Acres Range, Heidi Grace - Ribbon Stazon Ink - Black, Journalling Pen, Grant Archival CS, Gemstones, Dimensional Magic, Blue Marker, Chipboard Flourish, Heidi Grace Clear stamp, Staples, Heidi Grace Flowers and brad, Metal Embellishment, Other Ribbon, Plastic from Flower Arrangement, Note paper.

Why not give this challenge a try.

Cheers, M x
