Crafty Sketches - April Sketch

For my parents birthdays (they are born on the 30th, and the 31st March - 5 years apart) - which were while we were all in Kuala Lumpur (that's one reason I have been so slack in updating my blog), I booked them a photoshoot, so that they could some photos taken with Lily and Benji, and presented them with a voucher that a friend had made up specially for them.

The Voucher:

As soon as I got the photos back and I saw this photo, and I knew what the layout had to be about, and the sketch at Crafty Sketches was perfect!
Dad, and Benji have a special bond - not just because I named Benji after him (Benji's middle name is Roman after my Dad), but they truly do have a special connection. Benji is only a little over 6 months old, and one of the few people that he recognises is Dad - which is surprising, given that Dad works FIFO and is only home for a week at a time, every 4 weeks.

Mało Roman i Duży Roman -
the title is in Polish, and translates to Little Roman and Big Roman:


I made those little 'felties' myself - they are actually fun to make, and at least I can get embellies for my layouts that match perfectly. I'm sure that more will be appearing on my layouts in the near future.

The doilies in the clusters came from Purple Pumpkin.
