Forever My Baby

Dear all,

here we are again with the new month and challenges. My baby is two and the party turned great great great! Glad that was finally over.
Here's the challenge board from 123 Challenge Blog
COLOUR = Apricot WORD = Forever TECHNIQUE = Swirls
And my layout for that...
For some people, the challenge will be super easy as I thought at first as well.
But I have to change two background before I was finally satisfied with mine.
The story behind the pictures was, for my baby(I think) her everything is her opa(Grandpa) and so it is with my father-in-law. She is his everything. And the title fit good for what I meant for the pictures to be. She will be his forever baby, and so it is for me and my husband.
Lately I found stamping such a great joy. LOL. So, this time as well I manage to make my layout full of stamps. I colored the alphabet chipboards with black acrylic paint and retouched it with Inka Gold. Sprinkled some gesso for the background and used Pearl Pen from Viva to create some bubble surrounding my photos. Added a few flowers here and there. And voila! It's ready.
I would like to participate this layout as well for Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge No.36 with the sketch below

Thank you Scrap Africa for the challenge and thank you for stopping by and I really hope to see you again soon....

Hugs,

Merry
