I will cherish this moment forever

My daughter is about to step up on a new level on her Montessori school so she needed to present the class with the timeline of her life.  She asked me for several pictures of her life from me being pregnant to her being 8.  I let her pick and in those we found this precious baby photo.
While she did her work I decided to print a copy for me too and reminisce on this moment when she arrived in our lives for the first time.
For my testimony
I journaled about how much we wanted her, how excited her brother had been of seeing her for the first time on the sonogram and then on real life.
My first pregnancy was so difficult, the birth complications, the month long stay at NICU, my empty hands leaving the hospital with my first born hospitalized...
It took us 8 years to take the courage and my what a worthy wait, you are so precious to us 3, you have filled our life with laughter, joy and pink, so much pink, I wouldn't have it any other way and I want you to know that, you make our life complete!
For my scheme I have used all 5 colors, using the palest sweetes pink on my varnished paper
for my testimony I chose to tuck my journaling, I took advantage of the MME pp that had the shape of an envelope and created my own with a glassine bag by Webster's.
I made it so it opens and shuts and lined it in papers that matched the scheme

for my evdence I chose those enamel black circles,
this piece of Websters gorgeous trim was the perfect green accent,
Distress background with paints and inks
and vertical strips of patterned paper

tons of layered pp

this photo is so precious to me

loved working this case, now you can have a glimpse of the spun sugar distress ink used on my background

my CSI inspiration board
if you know me you know these are MY colors, LOL
