Mom. Second Round - a lo

Edit: one of the spotlight artists for this lo



This is my take on the challenge at Once Upon A... Sketch, with the theme of "mom" and the so beautiful sketch by Nadia Cannizzo:
The photo is of me, towards the end of my 2nd pregnancy, about 10 days before I gave birth to my youngest. The hidden journaling (the tag on top of the photo) is about how I wanted a second child immediately after giving birth to my eldest, and how I've prepared myself to a natural labor, and ended up with a CS (no, not a cardstock, but a cesarean section... LOL and it was the 2nd time I ended up with CS).
I used Glitz Design papers (Beautiful Dreamer collection), Prima flowers (and their package), scraps of Jillibeen Soup dp (the small rolled flowers), doilies and lace from my stash. The pale blue flourishes were stamped (AC stamps) with TH distress ink and then cut with crafting knife. The lacy birds were also stamped (7Gypsies) and cut inside and outside, and I adhered a piece of doily behind.
Here are some close-ups on the details:



I would like to enter this lo also for the following challenges:
special woman in your life - glitz design
use doily - scrapfit
fussy cutting - scrapfit; amuzing challenges
color combo challenge (Lisa's challenge for INSD
texture trio (stitching/embossing/distressing) - Milissa's challeng for INSD
half-used alphabets - Jemma's challenge for INSD (I run out of two common letters in Hebrew for my title, so I adapted  other to substitue them)
mom - celebrate the occasion; the pink elephant;
photo booth - city crafter
torn/distressed edges - craft your passion
photo inspiration plus a rose - the shaaby tea room (my roses are the rolled flowers)
punch it! - scraptastic club
feminine plus ribbon - really reasonable ribbon's
Thank you for stopping by! your comments are much appreciated.
דף מעוצב עם תמונה שלי בשלהי ההריון השני. הכיתוב הנסתר (בתגית מעל התמונה) מספר על הכמיהה שלי לילד נוסף, שהחלה מייד לאחר לידת הבכור, על ההכנות הרבות שעשיתי כדי ללדת לידה טבעית (אחרי קיסרי), ועל כך שבסופו של דבר סיימתי עם ניתוח קיסרי (נוסף).
הפעם זה דף לא לאלבום של אחד הילדים, אלא אחד בשבילי...
הרבה יישון של הדפים והתמונה, חיתוכים עדינים, שכבות, פנינים, וינטאג' - אחרי זמן רב שהכנתי דפים בסגנון אחר.
תודה על תשומת הלב!

Sorry I'm so late getting over here. So busy with LOAD and CKC that I haven't had much time for anything blog related. I ;OVE what you did with my colour challenge. What a simply gorgeous page. You really picked out the colours and proportions perfectly and there's so much to love here. You are quite the challenge queen, aren't you?!?

Lisa said...

oh, forgot to say, I'll be posting a response to your challenge from NSD tomorrow! I jumped in and gave the stamping a try! :-)

איזו הריונית יפה, ואיזה מרגשת, אפילו בכיתוב המינימלי שברשומה, בטח אם הייתי קוראת את התגית הייתי בוכה. מאיפה הציפורים? מיוחדות מאוד. דף מאוד "אמהי". לא יודעת אפילו להסביר מה זה אומר. יש לך יכולת מופלאה להעביר תחושות בדף.
