My fave

This is my fave layout, so here's the story behind it. When Libby was about 3 months old I became very ill, so ill that I was in hospital under intensive care for nearly a month. The first week I physically couldn't see her but as time went on I was allowed little hour long visits, but as you can imagine this was not nearly enough. So when I eventually had my surgery and was allowed home I was worried about our bond, I was worried she wouldn't remember me or know me as her mam. I'm so glad norman took these photos as they are a constant reminder that this was not the case, she remembered her mammy, we put her in her bouncer as I was quite weak after surgery still and she laughed and giggled and smiled, raucous laughing, flinging her head back full belly laughs. I was over the moon and norman said she hadn't laughed or smiled like that since I went away. I have this story written out and secretly placed behind the photos, you might be able to see the little pull down tag there. The quote at the top of the page reads: 'A smile starts on the lips, a grin spreads to the eyes, a chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts from the soul, overflows, and bubbles all around'. A perfect quote for this layout me thinks. I lifted this layout also from a scrapping magazine as when I saw it I knew it would be a perfect way of getting all the photos on one page, I didn't want to leave any photos out as each one is so special to me. xxx
