Looking for CC on this layout for my friend

I did this layout for my friend, and I want to make it perfect for her. She had her baby girl Oct. 1st at 28 weeks. She was born 1 lb 9 oz (and is doing splendidly!)

Anything I should add or subtract? Any other ideas? Her last name will be on the version I give to her (edited out of this one)

Wow! I would love to receive that page as a gift! I love the pictures of her little tiny hands. I like the focus/emphasis on the pictures. It's a beautiful page, Trina.

The only thing I notice -- and it may only be b/c we're seeing a resized version -- is that the 1 on Oct 1 blends into the frame next to it.

Wow your friend will love the page but I agree the 1 in Oct looks like it is right on the edge

Wow, how precious! I can't get over how tiny that sweet baby is! The page is beautiful.

that is beautiful ... and she really is a little miracle. I am amazed at how well so many premies that young do. (a woman on my Jan board had her baby at 28 weeks, and he's past his due date now and he's doing great).

it is beautiful, although there is no journalling. have you thought of including a small bit of info?

Thanks ladies! I fixed the Oct. 1st, I didn't notice that. And I might ask the mom if she wants me to add any journalling, I wasn't there so I'm not sure what she would want on there.

What if you added a spot on the back of the page, where she could add her own journaling? I just think the page is so beautiful the way it is. Sometimes when I do a page where a journaling box just won't work I will add it too the back. Also with such a personal sweet page it would be good if the journaling came from mommy:)

That's a good idea, thanks Tia! I'm digital, but I can put some blank cardstock on the back when I get it printed for her so she can do her own story.

I like the idea of the mom adding some journaling! It's perfect otherwise.
