This is a layout that I began before we left Jamaica but wasn't able to finish before we left. Well, it had been left untouched until this week when I finally dug out my scrappy supplies.
It's so funny how my layouts always change as I'm going along. I had initially thought of just the borders, the bears and a title. As I was working on it, I decided that I needed more embellies with the bears so along came the hearts, flowers, tags and stitched circle. I wasn't sure how I'd do the title, but I knew I wanted it to go in that space on the left. I thought I'd use up some of the monograms I have from CTMH and then stickers from the kit I used. I wanted to add some ribbon to make it part of a challenge over at SNC so I added a little tab of it. When I was finished, I hadn't journalled anything but it wouldn't fit into the design - this happens to me often! But I really wanted to include the story of how this was one of my favourite outfits of A's. So, hidden journalling it was!
