Hi All! Had a blast doing this as I tried something VERY different this time. I normally have been adding mists, sprays, and paint to my layouts, but this week I was BOLD and went for something that I thought was scary- Molding paste. I had some lying around and well I really have been itching to use it. I decided to outline a butterfly with paste so I cut a butterfly from my cricut and outlined it with molding paste. Then while still wet I went wild with clear micro beads then added paints and sprays and blended to achieve colors. I was a bit frustrated that you cant see the bottom butterfly under my clusters but oh well!
For evidence I used flowers and stars.
For journaling I decided to document a journey that being my daughter's journey to birth. I have attached my lengthy journaling to the back of my layout in a little pocket I made but you can read all the boring details ;) if you want below! Thanks for looking!

To My Little Miss
The reason I chose to call this "journey to you" is because it was quite a ride- my pregnancy with you. What a journey it was!
My pregnancies with you and your brother were very different in many ways.
With Luke the pregnancy went fairly well(besides nonstop morning sickness for 3 months.
Your brother's "journey" to birth was fairly uneventful.
Now you my dear, on the other hand from the first week (knowing I was pregnant till you were laid in my arms)was fierce at times.
My pregnancy was littered with sometimes unnecessary ultrasounds, extra blood work etc. You were constantly keeping us on our toes.
Not only that, I could tell that you my baby might be slightly more fiesty that most babies. Call it mother's intuition, but I sensed it.
One day late in my pregnancy, I went for my OB visit only to find out that you had decided that you didn't like lying head down as nature intended but instead were lying sideways (Transverse Lie).
Each week we would hope that you would turn, but you instead would spin from transverse to breech and back again.
The only thing you and your brother had in common (as he was delivered via induction at 41 weeks)is that niether of you wanted to come out!
Haha! My babies are very stubborn, no?
The doctor continued to reassure me you could turn but as the weeks went by and still no change, we had to begin talking about cesarean delivery.
well that's eventually how the story ended.Your journey to birth was not what we expected, but was filled with joy nonetheless. Your delivery went smoothly and then there you were-Beautiful as ever. So there ends your story in- utero, but the real adventure/ journey has only just begun.
