    Default An album for Holden (Charys's nephew)

    Well I know I have been gone for a bit but as I have told some of you I was still scrapbooking Out of all the scrapbooks of my childern this one has to be one of my favorites that I have ever made. As some of you know Sarah, Charys's twin sister had lost her sweet son Holden during birth. Although I had not ever met Sarah I felt very connected to her being pregnant at the same time and having our babies only 1 day apart. I knew it would be too hard for Charys to make this album so I asked her permission if I could make it for her sister. If you have not seen Sarah's blog I urge to look at the beauty that she is doing for the people in Uganda.http://cserwin.blogspot.com/ She has built 9 fresh water wells in Holden's honor. Her words are way better than I can ever put it so if you do go onto her blog hit the part that says Holden uganda.
    Since I did not know Sarah personally all the pages were based off her blog posts. All the journaling is hers. I also have hidden journaling in this album and made a spot for Charys to journal on the only an aunt page.

    That is beautiful, and what a kind thing for you to do.

    Charys, just wanted to send a to you and your family. I glanced at the blog, and just like you, it appears that your sister is beautiful inside and out.
