|This two-page spread was donated to my site. (Thank you!) Her notes indicate that she made the birth mom figure on the right out of felt. The maid pictures in black are from clipart. She used the black corner 'frames' to accent the important info, the copied personal information of the birthmother, important for the dedication pages.
In the left half, she wanted to use a 'gift' theme to support my journaling about the birthmother giving her son the 'gift' of life and love. She journaled on the computer and printed on blue vellum for the left page and hand-wrote on the right page. To make the 'gift', she picked several patterns of paper, trimmed with the 'lace' scissors and layered them. I wanted it off-center to make it look more like an actual present and not just borders.
