Oh, I just love this little guy. What a blessing he has been on my life and my family's life. This picture is actually about 4 weeks old but he looks very much the same now. Maybe a little less hair. :)
This sweet little baby was born on July 6, 2011 in North Carolina. He made his arrival a few days early while we were away from home at a family reunion. What could have been a very strained situation was made into a wonderful experience thanks to the wonderful nurses and doctors at Murphy Medical Center. They took very good care of me, Garrett, and even the rest of my family.
For this layout I used some Petaloo flowers and new Authentique papers. It was the perfect soft background for my pictures. I used a filter on my picture that I got from The Pioneer Woman that made the colors soft and muted. The Petaloo flowers were all distressed with a little brown ink and then accessorized with metal accents from Tim Holtz. The tag was stamped with a stamp from Glitz and the canvas tag was cut from a Tim Holtz die and then colored with a yellow Copic marker.
This hidden journaling tag fits in behind the picture. I plan on writing a few details about how I felt when he was born on it. I am so looking forward to all of the new milestones that are ahead of us and having the pleasure of scrapping them once again.
