Special Family Bond

Last night I started work on the October kit for scrapaholix.

When I saw all the black and white I thought I would add colour as a contrast, but here is the finished LO and no colour added, it worked without. The only tiny bit of colour is in my daughters nail polish and Oliver's babygrow, and the two just happen to match perfectly!

The journalling reads "Special Family Bond. 6th March 2009. Catherine's first cuddle with baby Oliver. Not only are Catherine and Oliver cousins, they are also both triplets!"

This kit contains (all 12"x12") plain white cardstock, Black Cordinations, Daisy Bucket 'Little Black Dress' papers, a length of white organza ribbon with black spots, two balck and two white blossoms, black and white felt, sand paper and a pin! I used a Page Map from August 2009

The technique is paper piercing. I pierced a circle and patterns onto my layout, then with black embroidery thread joined up the holes. I added two black and white brads from my own stash. The title lettering was done using three different alphabets from my own stash, velvet lettering for 'special' and felt lettering for 'Bond', both from Making Memories. The word 'Family' uses
letter stickers from Doodlebug Designs.

For the journalling I wrote on white cardstock. I cut this into strips and inked the edges with chalk ink. The crystal brackets at top and bottom of the photograph are by 'Say It With Crystals' from Prima Marketing.

There are lots of papers left over so I will be back with more!
