This layout celebrates something of an unusual milestone in Bubs’ life.
You see Bubs was born with a 90% double tongue tie which has only been partially cut. When she was still only a few weeks old we were warned that the severity of the tie would mean that she’d never be able to poke out her tongue, lick an ice cream or sing, and that she would have significant speech problems.
You can imagine how ecstatic we were when Bubs started not only poking out her tongue but rolling it too!
So far we have seen nothing resembling the dire warnings we were given. She sings all the time. Everything she does is accompanied by a lovely made-up song. She devours ice creams in seconds and the only speech issue we have is that I’ve yet to find the volume control!
This layout was made using the July Like For Ever kit and a few bits and pieces from my stash. I covered a portion of the background paper in gesso using a large household paint brush to give it a bit of texture. Then I used the packaging technique to add splodges of watercolour paint in coordinating colours. The photo was matted on layers of paper from Crate Paper’s The Pier collection and I added die cuts from my stash. It’s all topped off with some machine stitching and a jumble of thread under the flair button.
