With more than enough leftover supplies from the Carta Bella Hello Again collection from the Paper Stories shop I went ahead and made another layout. Remember how I said at the beginning that I thought perhaps the black paper would make an interesting background? Well I couldn't get that thought out of my head, so this is what I did....
Contrasting against the black & white background I wanted lots of
bright coloured papers (all my 'scraps') and I used up quite a few of
the Element Stickers
too. I thought I better stick to a black & white photo with all
that going on and even though this one is pretty ordinary in quality it
makes up for it in sentiment.
The photo shows me with 2 of my colleagues. We were all posted to work
at the same hospital around about the same time. There's been lots of
ups and downs over these last 3 years but I can always count on these
girls for support, and that means the world to me. The title of my
layout "Through Thick and Thin" reflects that idea.
There was a sticker in the Elements sheet that read 'thank you for being a friend' and it worked perfectly here, and even one of the Ormolu Flair Buttons
had a cross on it which reminds me of hospitals so it also found a home
on this layout. I think it's great when your embellishments are pretty,
but I think it's even more awesome when they help symoblise the overall
