2 down - 10 to go!

Another layout of my Granny. This one was taken when she was pregnant with My Mum so was probably 1948. I struggled with this one a little as I wasn't quite sure what to do for the wording. I nearly went for 'with-child' as it seemed more like something I would imagine they would say in the forties. I was going to go with something along the 'blossoming, blooming lines but that seemed a bit too informal. Then 'mother-to-be' but that seemed a bit over formal. so I plumped for mum to be - Isn't if funny how the simplest part of your layout can take so long to sort out!

A mix of papers on this one. The background paper is by KI memories: Choices Collection - Posh One word. The frame and cut-outs are by Crate Paper; Baby Bee Collection - Pollen. The cream card used for the lettering and baby stickers are from my stash and the ribbon is from Craftastic in hillsborough, Sheffield. You'll have seen it before in blue on some of my baby cards.
