Made for Sketch #2 of the January Monthly Sketch challenge. The sketch is located here: http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/409787/view/2539981/-1.html
This was one tough page to make! It was made for the next Journaling Junkie challenge, due to come out January 15. The hidden journaling details how complicated motherhood has been for me, and the next decisions I need to make on this journey. The photos touch on each of the subjects of my journaling, becoming a mother for the first time with Ethan and how it changed me, then how Cameron was the exact opposite of Ethan and his colic, and then my endometriosis, which is the biggest photo (post-op photo - I b/w'ed it so it would be less disturbing!) because it is the biggest factor in the time frame for my decisions. We didn't have to include any cards in the layout, but I thought it was fitting. The last card is turned because I don't know what it is yet. You'll also notice the KQKK cards - KQ (my husband, me) and then KK (my boys, each the opposite of the other). I haven't put this much thought into symbolism before or been intentional about embellishments like this, but this page took a lot of everything for me to complete it!
Hidden journaling is located in the folded white paper with the green bow wrapped around it. If you are interested in reading it, please see the second page that details it. :)
