my favorite memory is him
Sorry for the far away picture. My camera is mad at me and I just can't seem to get a good picture lately. It's not keeping a charge, it's been focusing with a clicking sound... I think I've worn it out. I better start looking for a new one.
This page is made for Julie's My Favorite Things blog challenge: My Favorite Memory. Since all of my favorite memories are pretty much about my son, I thought it best to make the page about him.
This fabric flower is made from scraps from the baby quilt that my mom and grandmother made for my son right after he was born. Mom came into town and we picked out all of the fabric together so that it would match the room I was decorating. That was so fun! The little piece of yellow fabric behind the picture is also from from the quilt.
I hand-stitched around all of the clouds. It took quite a long time, but for the final effect it was completely worth it.
This picture is from my son's 4-week-old photo shoot. You know the one... where they are a lump but you expect them to smile for the camera because you're a new mom and that first trip to the photographer is the best one... so they better cooperate. Yeah... that one!
We still have the sepia version of this picture in 11x14 framed and matted in the living room. My favorite picture of Nate as a baby!!
The layout for the page came from the Guest Design Team Member Challenge at Scrapfreak. I lifted Bethy's page HERE. There are a lot of great pages this time around!!
