I have had the pieces for this layout sitting on my desk for almost 2 months... Being away from home for a long period of time didn't give me a chance to complete it and then once it was completed, I had to fit it into the week between a few other posts.
So, finally, here it is. This is my precious Mika. She hates having her picture taken so it is unusual to catch her actually looking at the camera with a decent expression.
The title was a challenge - I stamped the letters with Memento ink but the ink still bled when I tried to blend the marker colours. I wanted to include the journaling under the title so I
added a flip flap and decorated the bottom of it so that part would show through. The journaling is written above that and on the back side of the card. I have no problems cutting my page protectors so I can open them up to read the journaling in my albums.
