Lucky Ladybugs

Thank goodness it's Friday! Sorry for being MIA, life has been "happening" so to speak and blogging was simply not high enough on the priority list. However, here I am trying to get back into the swing of things.
This is a layout I made for our friend Kelly who is in China right now to meet her new daughter and bring her back home to Canada. A group of us got together and made up an album for the first year of her life with her new family. On each page, we leave room for photos on the left side and provide journalling space in the form of a calendar on then right side. I was responsible for both August and September. I hope to share September with you tomorrow.


My papers are from Basic Grey's Lemonade line, one I hoarded for a very long time. By chance, the papers that I chose for this layout happened to include ladybugs. It is my understanding that ladybugs are a universal sign of goodluck, especially in the Chinese adoption world. Many explanations of this can be found on-line, I enjoyed reading up on this. :) Congratulations Kelly, I cannot wait to meet your daughter!
Hugs,
Shanna
p.s. I look forward to catching up with all of you soon!
