Just The One Layout, wish there was more to share

Hi Peeps, It really has been a long time since I have done any crafting of any kind and my biggest reason for this is I found out I was pregnant before Christmas which was a shock, but I suffered with really nasty Morning Sickness which left me feeling really crap and energy-less, not being able to keep any drinks or food down. But thankfully I am back to my normal self apart from the tiredness.
 Here Is a layout I attempted the other day, I had planned to ease my way back into scrapbooking by following some you tube class videos but ended up gathering the bits together I wanted to use and ended up putting this layout together without the use of a sketch or video.
 For the base I used Echo Park's Candy Cane paper from the Every Body Loves Christmas Collection, but felt once everything was stuck in place that it needed something else and embellishments didn't seem to stand out so I used my Black Glaze Sukura Pen and went round the edges highlighting some of the Hexagons.
 I also went round the Scalloped shape too with the pen to make that also stand out. I then cut some Snowflakes from some felt ribbon which was backed with tape so easy to stick.
 The photos were of Me and my Brother with our Dad and our childhood Cocker Spaniel Chloe on a Snow Day and we had built a Snowman and Chloe decided to knick the Carrot Nose lol.
I used the snow Border from the Border paper from the Everybody Loves Christmas Collection and then letter Stickers for the title.  And then wrote my journalling.
So that's it on the layout. I did have a Valentines Card I wanted to share but I will have to try and upload on next post as I don't seem to have taken the photos of it yet.
