Such a Sweetie

The inspiration for this layout was from the Anthropologie homepage. They have changed it now, but it is still similar - a little bit grungy with the words in different fonts and such. I did this for the Sweet Inspiration Challenge #5.

It was fitting to do this for the Inspiration Challenge, since my friend's strength and courage are what inspired me to do it. I made this layout as a gift to my friend Kara (MommySpice) in memory of her son, Joey. She has been hard at work scrapping his photos, and it isn't always easy for her to do. I wanted to give her a gift to let her know how much I admire her and to let her know that I am so lucky to have her as my scrappin' buddy. All of the photos of Joey that I have seen always show his tubes and bandaids, etc..so I zoomed in on their hands in an attempt to give her a "no tubes" baby picture to look at when she needs it.

The journaling reads: Your hospital photos look very different than mine. So, I wanted to create a layout for you that simply shows a mommy and her baby. Then, just for a second...I hope you can just remember this exact moment and none of the hard stuff.

The alpha used to make {moment} is from the Sweet Shoppe's 2007 Quartley Assortment Volume 1. It was in a kit by Suzy Nunes called Peppermint Tea - I did recolor it to match the blue in Joey's blankie. The brown crumpled tags are also from SSD's Quartley Assortment - a kit by Amanda Rockwell called Little Slice of Love. That assortment is the best deal EVER! It is so inexpensive and literally jam packed with good - no, AWESOME stuff! You would be NUTS not check it out!!!

The background paper and grungy overlay are from Jennifer Donnelly's Sweet Mystery Kit at Designer Digitals. The black label alpha is a freebie by Leah Riordan at OScraps. The file folder label is also a freebie from OScraps called Mod Monday by Jeni Cantrill. Photo credits go to Kara (or her hubby, I'm guessing!)

She is gonna love this! Such an intimate moment between a mom and her new baby Oh - I remember how hard it was for me in those early days. Such a precious photo - focuses on how special this new relationship is. I LOVE how you put the phrase together!! That looks like so much work!! lol - I find it hard enough if I have to use 2 different fonts on the same LO lol. Way to go!

Oh, this is so lovely. It's a totally beautiful layout and such a beautiful, beautiful thing to do. What a wonderful friend you. You've got my crying here. )I understand that sentiment so well, although I'm blessed to still have my little boy who is growing up big and strong.) Oh wow, yeah, you've got me all teary eyed; such an amazing thing to do for your friend.

Isn't Kara amazing to be scrapping her photos. I so admire her strength.

Ok- I'm not teary. I had a babe in the NICU and it's difficult even the minor issues. This page...just a wonderfully thoughtful gift. I love the whole sentiment. One of my favorite NICU photos is a fingers close up. -Kathleen
