I really want to say a special thank you to you all for every page that I got and share them all with the whole group. For most of them, I have no idea who scrapped them because there aren’t names on them. A few of you have told me and I can guess by the “style” of some who made them. Please excuse the poor color quality in the pictures. I knew that last night might be the only chance this week that I would get to take them, so the light wasn’t the best, but I tried to lighten them on the computer to make them closer to their actual color. They are in no particular order – just the order that they were in the package.
Okay ladies, here goes…
First, the color in this is absolutely beautiful. I love purple (it was my high school’s color – go Rattlers! :lol:) The picture defiantly does not do this page justice on the color. The quote is just perfect for this picture. It’s really hard for me to look at some of these very early pics and not tear up. I can tell you that when DH was taking these pictures, we weren’t sure whether our precious baby was going to make it through the night. The glitter really makes me think about how magical it was (or a miracle, depending on how you want to think of it) that she has flourished and come so far from this point.
I love the little squiggly boarder here and the detail of the staples on the red frame makes it look so “real”. These pictures make me wonder what happened to my little girl! Scout was about 7 months here and Noa was 8 months. Now they’re both toddlers
Again *sniff* for these pictures. DH took these before I was allowed to get up and get to the NICU to see Dylan. He brought the camera back and was hesitant to even show them to me because he didn’t want me to be upset by them. I love the contrast of the seriousness of the pictures against the whimsy of the elements here. It ties in beautifully to the quote.
These pictures were taken around the time that (to me) Dylan stopped looking like a preemie and started looking like a baby. I love the stitching around the edge and on all of the circles. That is just too cute! I also like the way you used the two papers on top of each other and let the circles and ribbon hang over the edge of the top one. The font of her name is really cool, too.
Can you say cuteness??? The pictures were taken while we were waiting in the doctor’s office and I gave Scout my sunglasses to play with. The circles remind me of a camera’s flash. I also really like the criss-crossed cut paper behind the pictures.
I just love the way the elements here are clustered. The feather is a beautiful touch. The shadows on it make it seem so 3-D. This picture was part of Scout’s 7 month photo shoot that DH did.
This picture was taken on the hospital bed just before we left. It gives me a big smile. I love the simplicity of this page. The focus is really on the sweet picture. The colors of the paper really compliment the colors in the picture.
This page is so adorable! These were Scout’s 6 month pics. The papers here are super-cute. I really like the “stripe” across the middle of the page and the way the squares are crooked.
Beautiful colors here. I love the contrast of the blue against the yellow. The stitching across the tag is a cute touch. These are obviously her 11 month pics. I just love the expression on her face in the bottom one.
The pics here were from a wonderful mess Scout made with spaghetti. I adore the colors here (can you tell – they almost match my couch!) The wire bracket on the bottom picture is a sweet touch. I’ve seen ones like that in kits before and never knew how to use them. I learned something here!
Once again, I love these pictures. The stitching in this page are my favorite part, I think. I love the stitches around the edge and the lettered stitching.
In case you can’t tell, this is a paper scrap. I had to run my fingers across it to be sure - it looks so clean and neat! I think the bright pinks compliment the blue of the pictures. The strips of paper are really cute, too. I appreciate that you left a spot for journaling. Although I hate my handwriting, I think it’s a special thing to add.
This is another paper scrap. The first pic here was the first time I held Dylan besides a few seconds on the operating table right after the c-sec. The second was her first bottle from mommy. It really was a wish coming true. I’ve never seen real stitching on a paper before – just digital. The picture doesn’t show that detail well, but I really really like it. If I ever go back to paper scrapping, I’m gonna have to give it a shot.
I should tell you that this one is missing a couple of flowers. They’re all there, but they came off in the Texas heat. I can tell where they go and I’ll get them back on as soon as I can. This one is fun and presents me with a terrible dilemma. Which pictures to put here… When I saw the page at first, some came to mind instantly, but I’ve changed my mind about that every time I look at it. I’m gonna have to post another pic when I’ve added the pictures. I love these flowers and even though it won’t go in the book (gonna get a frame for it and put it in the girls’ room) it’s still so very sweet. I’m not sure you can tell in the pic, but the “i” in “little” has a sparkly dot over it that is a sweet touch.
Anyway, those are my fabulous RAK pages! I could go on and on about each one of them, but I feel like I already went on too much on a few! I have some serious “paying it forward” to do in the near future. Thank you all again and I hope you enjoy seeing everyone’s pages!
By the way, if you don't mind, can you "claim" your page(s) so I know if my guesses were right? Personal curiosity!
