Keeping A Secret

Sometimes the reason I love scrapbooking the most is because it can allow you to document a memory that you don't necessarily have a decent photo of. This was definitely one of those times.

Last November I had an evening out planned to celebrate my birthday with a few friends. I drove to my best friends house where I was going to stay the night. She wasn't home from work yet so I had a drink with her partner, I had a feeling he wasn't quite himself but he shocked me somewhat with the revelation that he was planning a proposal. This meant I was left with a massive secret (for, at that point, an unknown amount of time, turned out to be 6 weeks!) to keep from the very person that I tell all my secrets to! I tried to make myself forget all about it and act like normal....it was tough. That evening someone took a photo of my and Laurence and I thought, I'm gonna have to scrap that! I then came across a quote that was just spot on, 'he who wishes to keep a secret must act like he doesn't have one'.

Anyway, enough rambling, here it is........
I used Cosmo Cricket Upcycle and did the journalling on a card which I hid behind the photo.

Well done on keeping the secret! Great LO, could almost be part of the wedding album.
