Believe In Yourself

This layout was inspired by another layout I happened to previously come across online, but which I unfortunately cannot remember the name of its designer. So whoever the talented lady is, I thank you for the inspiration.

This layout was created for my older DD, who is spite of her dyslexia, managed to achieve top position in her class for her P6 prelim exams this year. Proud moment for mummy!

I used a mix of papers from Webster's Pages, both from their Postcards From Paris as well as their Winter's Wings collections, and embellished with cut-outs and bellies from Webster's as well.

The hardest part of this layout was holding the folded paper down, and for this, I used a piece of lace to hold it together, sort of like a curtain cord or belt. I then held the lace in place with a brad and some glue.

Behind the photo, I've inserted a piece of hidden journaling with a message to my DD.
