Thoughtful Thursday - Anna Allan ; Add more words...

Hello and HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all!
I am here today to share the last layout I created using the November Main Cake Kit.

I love all the lovely soft tones that the Maggie Holmes 'Open Book' range possess. I delved into the pile of baby photos for my eldest daughter and created a page around that.

I used more of the cut-aparts and the Amy Tangerine ephemera pack - I absolutely adored that gold foil 'Love Love Love' diecut!
With the photo being black and white, I liked how the gold foil letters shone against the darker background and also how the black letters teamed well with the page and popped against all the sweet soft tones.
I did add the large white doily, some glitter tape and some snowflake shapes from my own stash - the rest is all kit!

 I wanted to add my thoughts and feelings about this photo and being a Mum to this girl - however I didn't want to take away from the design of the page so decided to add in a journal pocket that hid the words. 
I have used the photo and vellum backing to create the pocket for the journalling card. When looking at the page it just looks like a part of the layers but when you pull the 'photographer's notes' card you find my thoughts and feelings written down.

Thanks for dropping by!
I hope you enjoy the festive season and have a safe and happy new year!

Anna :-)
