This month's challenge on Sarahscards is to think NEGATIVE. Nat suggests interpreting this word however you wish. I've interpreted it several ways.
1) You may look at this LO and think - "That's a layout? Really?" There are NO embellishments NO patterned paper (shocking for me I know) and NO fancy paper folding or other techniques.
2) The main part of the title is made by spraying over masks leaving a NEGATIVE space.
3) The subject matter could be seen as negative. It's not about how lovely my son is.

You may see this as me being negative about Sam, but I feel it is an important part of his life, especially if his communication issues continue as he gets older (which unfortunately I was told yesterday they possibly will). Last year when Josh was in hospital some people may have thought it was odd to take photos of him so ill and then to scrapbook them. I wanted to do it to help him remember what it was like and how brave he was. Plus it is important to document some of the NEGATIVE as well as loads of the POSITIVE.
So take a look, have a read, but focus on the positive for me would you? Because he is gorgeous and lovely and we do have lovely days the day we..... etc
