The Story of My Affectionate One

I'm the mother of 2 girls. But they're quite completely different from one another.
In summary, Munchy is a miniature version of me (in both appearance and personality) and Moodles is a tiny version of her father. Which also tells you a little bit about my marriage. I think for the most part we're a case of "opposites attract".

By nature my little Moodles is the more affectionate of the two. She's quite cuddly and will use any opportunity to be near me. She'll sit on my lap watching TV, she'll hold my hand and stroke me, and she loves it when I pat her hair and smooth it down. Yep, that's pretty much a reflection of her father, although thank goodness he doesn't sit on my lap as he's much MUCH bigger than I am ;-)

Although I'm not too much of a touchy-feely kind of person myself, I do love it when she comes to snuggle.

I put this layout together using a lot of odds and ends, but with a focus on some Fancy Pants products (as I'm entering this layout into their competition with Gossamer Blue this month). I used their Artisan Filter Papers as a highlight on my page, colouring them with my new Gelatos and typing my journaling on them too. What a versatile material!

I also used the sketch below from the July challenge at The Scrapbook Store as my starting point too. As usual I took a few liberties. The main one being that I only used one photo instead of two. But I'm getting more comfortable with looking at sketches like this and just deciding that I can interpret it to fit as many (or few) of my photos as I choose! And it's quite easy for me to replace the photos with journal spots instead.

Happy scrapping


  1. OOOH! Liking how you've used your gelatos....& the journaling as well...very clever! The stapled ribbon is a great finishing touch....a new fave...& I'm not touchy-feely, really - but my brother is the cuddly one - even at over 50!!!! - ...maybe it's mandatory to have one of each in a family!!!!!!

  2. Beautiful layout. Congratulations on joining the Paper Stories team - you are perfect for it!
