Darling child layout

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another layout for The Rubber Buggy.

The journaling is acutally the lyric from a Swedish song by Jessica Nilsson, that I read as a poem on my son's Christening. It simply says how much we've longed for our child and how our lifes has a new meaning and purpose now.

I mixed products from my stash with great pieces from The Rubber Buggy store. The background is a textured cardstock from my stash, but if you are looking for more muted tones, please check out Pion Designs palette papers. They are sturdier than their pattern papers and I'm pretty sure that Pion blue IV is a good match to the colour I've used.

I'm very happy with my combination of different embellishments to add texture and depht to my page. The white lace is perfectly dainty and yet, simple enough to fit a boy layout. I tried a number of venice drop lace, but it just looked to girly for my taste. Underneath the green lace from my stash I layered a white grossgrain ribbon. I'm super excited to have found such a good use of a doily. Love them, but they rarely look good on my projects from some reason? But here I thought it was the perfect match :)
My favorite pieces however on this layout is the shabby staples from Graphic 45. They add just a little weight to the layout.

Products used from the store:
Graphic 45 staples shabby chic ornate metal key holes
Graphic 45 staples shabby chic ornate metal keys
White lace w satin center
White grossgrain ribbon w satin edge
Doilies 5,5inches
Stamping supplies (doublesided tape, score tape, scissors)

Thank you for visiting!
