    Default Need more eyes

    This is for the last challenge at DSA. I am not even in the running to win, but I do want to give it my all. I'm not sure this one is done and I have until Friday to submit it. So, I guess I'm asking for C&C. I have 12 mini kits to choose things from... they are all this same color scheme and I can use anything from them, but nothing else. Here is what I have right now



    Journaling: For 19 days Dylan was in NICU and my world was turned upside down. My heart was torn between my newest baby in the hospital and my 14 month old at home. I spent my days at the hospital spending every moment they would let me with Dylan and my nights making sure that Scout had her mommy there to tuck her in at night. I couldn’t have done it without the help, love, and support of my incredible husband, my generous mother, the fantastic NICU nurses, and all of our other family and friends who gave us their time, thoughts, and prayers.

    that's beautiful.

    I didn't really realize how close your girls were in age. that must have been so very hard when she was in the ICU. I mean, I knew at the time that it was hard, but looking back so much later, and reading the journaling, just makes it hit home more. (that and I think I'm hormonally emotional right now).

    I don't think you should change a thing.

    I had a friend who recently had her 4th child at 33 weeks and she was in the NICU for 5 weeks. She had 3 other daughters at home - the oldest is 6. I thought I had it bad until I started thinking about what she was going through. I still got emotional making this LO and remembering the emotions I was feeling then.

    Carrie, I still get emotional 3 years later! But I really do view scrapping the memories as therapeutic. There is something about taking something so difficult and creating something beautiful out of it. We spent 19 days in the NICU as well, btw.

    My only cc is the "never ever give up". It seems a little "slogan-y" for such a sentimental page. IMO, I don't think you need it on there.

    It's a beautiful page! I love the white space you created and your journaling is wonderful!

    The journaling brought tears to my eyes. Jamie was in the NICU, but thankfully not for long and one of my biggest fears was that it would happen again with Allie and I would be torn like that between them. The layout is beautiful just like it is!
