Fun with Fragments, Epoxy stickers, and Say it With Crystals

This page was made with clear Heidi Swapp ghost flowers that were altered by affixing patterned papers behind them, and gems on them. Also used were clear acrylic rectangles called Tim Holtz's Ideology Fragments which were altered by affixing matching pattered papers behind them. Both tabs were also altered with markers or gems. And lastly the crystals were cut apart so I can lay them in a direction that best fits my page design.

This layout is very special to me. I went into labor to deliver my beautiful baby girl. I spent most of the labor at home sitting at my dining room table scrapbooking this page. In between each contraction I just continued merrily to work on my scrapbook page. lol! I figured that the best way to get through something painful like labor was to spend my time doing my favorite activity - scrapbooking.

Now, days later I go to put into my album that special scrapbook page and I am just amazed at how beautiful the page came out. I guess those labor hormones made my creativity soar.
