Filled with Wonder
I have had these photos in my 'to scrap' pile since we got home from Fiji last year. I love the look of absolute wonder on Benjis face as he looks at the little lizard scampering around the security light. The colour combo at 'Color Combo Galore' was perfect for the darker colours of the photos. I often struggle scrap dark photos because my preference seems to be brighter papers and embellishments.
The journaling prompt was to write about your children and why they are incredible! Well, I think that the day to day way that my kids are there for each other and the love that they show each other in little ways is pretty special. On this occasion Natalie noticed that her little brother would dearly love to get closer to the lizard but was too scared of it to go by himself, so, even though she herself detests creepy crawlies she piggy backed him closer. I was an only child so I never had this relationship with a sibling and I really wish that I could have experienced it.
Anyway, enough rambling...
I love the new MME collections and they co-ordinate so well with the new 'Prima' wooden buttons, tickets and clocks (which I cant get enough of). The little scrapware chipboard lizard was the perfect finishing touch. I have to confess that I did something that I have never done before to get it. I removed it from a previous LO that I made of Adams trip to Singapore zoo and repainted it to match this page. (I substituted a frog on the zoo page lol). I wasn't sure about the large butterfly at first (I cut it from an older sheet of Bo Bunny paper), but in the end I stuck it down and I think that it does add a little something extra to the page.
