This is one of my all time favourite photos. it was taken just hours after Benji was born and is the first time that Sophie held and cuddled him. She was so thrilled and just kept kissing his little forehead over and over again. He lay so peacefully in her arms and only wimpered when we took him away from her. Three years later they are still very close, they do occasionally squabble but mostly Sophie is very tolerant of her little brother's annoying behaviour lol.
The new challenge at Once Upon a Sketch is to scrap a page using the theme 'Birthdays' and their current sketch.
I used October Afternoon Farmhouse papers for this page - the colours are soft and pastel which is what I wanted. I used a mix of pink and blue elements to keep the page gender neutral. The gorgeous little resin bird bath and birds are from 'Prima'. I only got them a couple of days ago and couldn't wait to use them. They were perfect for this page about another little birdie joining our family :)))
All of you in NZ have a great Queen's birthday holiday - a good excuse for some extra craft time me thinks!!
