The design for this next layout was inspired by a wall-hanging I saw in a magazine I was flicking through at the hairdressers. It's wonderful where we can find inspiration from. I cut out all the little circles and then sewed them in place on the layout.
The little book thingy at the bottom opens out to reveal journaling:
One of the things I loved doing while I was pregnant with you was to think about your name. What should we call you? It's a big thing - a name. It's with you for life. My favourites were Josh, Jamie, Tyler, Charlie and Zane. Your Dad liked Michael, Patrick and Alexander. He was keen on you having a name that reflected the Link side of our family. But most of them are so German - Heinrich, Emmerich, Hans... He suggested Michael. We both liked that. We both liked Jamie too. Well, James. We thought you might want to be James when you're older. So, we had Michael Alexander, Michael James and James Michael. We only decided last weekend. I was so excited to finally have a name for you - James Michael Link! But sshhh... it's a secret until you're born. No-one else knows yet. 11 November 2005.
Jamie was born 6 days after I did this layout.
Have a great weekend everyone!
