Love from the First Sight - lo & a RAK

edit: This lo won for handmade challenge at Paper Niche!
Thank you, Paper Niche!

The photo is of my eldest, 3 days after he was born. My brother holds my son, while my mom puts her hand on his head. I gave birth on an emergency cs, and I was anesthetized, so I could see my little baby only a few hours after giving birth. I had to struggle with the nurses so they'll bring him to me, being unable to get up and get him by myself.
The minute I saw him, I just fell in the most profound love I've ever had.
That is what I wrote in the journaling. And the title says: "love from the first sight".

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a lovely weekend.

הדף הזה הוא עם תמונה של בני הבכור, 3 ימים לאחר לידתו. ילדתי אותו בניתוח קיסרי חירומי, תחת הרדמה מלאה, כך שיכולתי לראות אותו רק כמה שעות לאחר הלידה. הייתי צריכה לנדנד לאחיות כדי שיביאו לי אותו. ברגע שראיתי אותו, נכבשתי ברגש עז ועצום של אהבה, בעוצמות שלא ידעתי מעולם.
לעיצוב הדף השתמשתי באותיות מקסם שימושי, בקיפולי קווילינג, פרח שהכנתי מסרטי משי, לב מקרושה וסרטי תחרה, אורגנזה ומשי.
את הפנים של מפית התחרה חתכתי ומיקמתי את התמונה והדף המדוגם שמתחתיה כך שהם בחלקם מחוץ למפית ובחלקם מתחתיה, מעין הד לתהליך הלידה עצמו.
ממש נהניתי להכין דף וינטאג'י ורומנטי, אבל בשביל ועל בן...

תודה שנכנסתן לבלוג שלי!
שיהיה סוף שבוע נעים, רגוע ומהנה.
