Baby Memories

About a month ago, we received the tragic news that a young couple in our family lost their baby three weeks from delivery.  They courageously invited a photographer to take pictures of their few hours together.  The photos are heartrending beautiful.  I offered to make them a scrapbook and they took me up on it.  The photos below are not great.  I took them at the last minute so I could share them with family members who contributed to the cost.  There are no pictures of the baby and family because I was unable to print them...some computer glitch I think.  But it's probably best not to splash their grief all over the internet.




I also made a card to include and express our deepest sympathy. I used the Mojo Monday #182 sketch, and then realized it would also work for OWH's Scallops challenge.

 



The paper is "Bliss" from CTMH.  I also used "Lyrical Letters" from Cricut for the page titles and small embellishments. 

I prayed over each page: that the comfort of God's embrace would reach out and touch them each time they remember their precious son.

Until next time,
Becca
