Hello from a snow covered Cornwall :D  Like all of you I have been so busy with Christmas preparations that I haven't done much crafting but I have saved this for you!  The last few months have been very baby-fied and if I am honest it made me feel pretty broody.....thought I was past all that hahahaha!!!!  But I love babies and really wanted more than one but it was not to be after I miscarried :( except these things in the end don't you & just get on with life.  But then come 3 little ones ( only 2 are family) in a space of 2 weeks & those old feelings start to rear!  So I attacked my journal & made a double page.  Here it is...

I did this page about a month ago and am happy to report that I am now very happy to hand them back when they squeal hahaha!

Thank you for taking the time to have a look today, I know how busy you all are, HUGS XXX

Aaww this is a gorgeous page Karen, how lovely to see the 3 babies included.
I can totally understand the broodiness you get when babies are around as I always wanted my own - and I understand the joy of giving them back too!!!
Looking forward to seeing more pages and baby photos!! xxx

I can understand your mixed feelings. I would have loved to have had children but it wasn't to be. Beautiful journal pages - and beautiful babies x

Aw that is really lovely. I get rid of my broody moments now enjoying my little Granddaughters and can then give them back when I've had enough :-)

Lovely page Karen - I guess there's often a little undercurrent of sadness in things that make us happy (maybe it would be harder to tell we're really happy without it?). Glad it's eased back to the "happy to hand them back" feeling for you :o)

That's so sweet Karen.

Beautiful pages Karen. Great doodlings. I was an only child & didn't want Rachel to be an only one... altho I don't think she thanks me for her 2 younger brothers!!!!
Enjoy those cuddles.. lovely to hand them back when they cry!
Hope you have a lovely Sunday. Take care.XXX

babies are so adorable, they always bring us smiles and warm hearts.

I LOVE your two page spread and love how you used the circles to zoom in on their cute little faces. The writing is playful and goes well with the spread. Love the baby carriage, very cute. I can't wait to get home and make something.

Hope you're having a great day!
