One of the photos I took of my daughter, Kimberly, at our beach photo shoot in March 2009. The background piece is a Creative Imaginations die cut sheet. I cut the center of it out and replaced it with the purple cardstock. The swirls are stamped on transparencies. The orange dots are scraps from the hole puncher. I added some white and purple Prima blooms and touched the edges with some purple stickles. I made the journaling strips by printing my text in a text block. I made the background purple and turned my font white. The quote reads:
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~ Elizabeth Stone
I've also tucked some journaling behind the photos that reads:
Kimmer, even though I knew that I would have to gradually release you into the world during adolescence, I've never completely let go. A piece of me will always be with you wherever you go.
