I missed the deadline for the last Kaya challenge! Well, actually, I finished it on time but was delaying posting it since I thought I still had enough time to do so. When I checked the Kaya blog, was surprised to find out that the deadline was past (last May 15) because there are two challenges for the month. Haaay! And to think that I kept on bugging Lee about the requirements because I was disqualified from the April Kaya challenge. (Hehehe!)

So anyway, I am still posting my layout here. The challenge was to use fabric/textile and ribbons/lace only on your LO --- no patterned paper at all. This was quite a challenge but I looove the outcome of my layout. :D This is a picture taken during the baptism of my niece, Margaux. Margaux is the daughter of my youngest sister, Marla. Marla used to be my baby! Now she has a baby of her own! Sniff! Sniff! :D

I used a fabric from one of the girls' dresses. Since felt is considered textile (di ba Lee? Hehe) I used a Queen and Co. felt lace embellishment and punched flowers on felt c/o Sherly. My title, likewise, is American Crafts felt alphas. The flowers on my layout are Bazzil cloth flowers and I also used some lace, ribbon and fiber. :D

Title: Almost

Journaling: As I held my niece, Margaux, in my arms, a flood of memories washed over me. I remembered each of my children when they were but babes. I remembered their scent, their cries, their soft skin. I started to wonder whether we should have one more; whether we should even out the number of children. Then I thought of the breastfeeding, the nappy changes, the food grinding, the toilet training and... Hmmm, maybe I should think more about it. But I almost decided. Almost. APRIL 2009
