I finished this layout last night. The Sassafras papers and the Sakura Souffle pen are part of my kits from Scrapbukan. I enjoyed doodling using the white pen. At first, the white pen looks transparent. It took awhile for the white marks to show. The result -- beautiful and fantastic!

Hidden journaling (pull the flower to reveal the tag): After I got married in 2003, I didn’t know I’d have a life far from what I have envisioned for myself. I became pregnant 3 months after marriage. I stopped from working and stayed at home doing most of the chores. Nine months later, I gave birth and exclusively breastfed my son, Ethan. I stayed at home and looked after the welfare of my family. I’ve been a stay at home mom for more than 2 years … for me it’s such a long time already. Sometimes, I have to fight boredom. Sometimes, I feel I am losing my self esteem. It was a tough decision but I know … I am happy, I am fulfilled and I am blessed. Just one look at my 2 boys, I know, I made the right decision.
I finished this layout last week. These are photos of my "Family". It looks a lot different now since we have Jeff and Ethan as additional members. I still miss my dad, mom and brother sooo much. We now live in different houses and we don't see each other often. But I know for a fact, we will always remain as a family.
