I started this layout for the November Use Your Supplies Challenge week 2 75% left over supplies. AND November Ribbon Challenge
Not knowing what to do, I started flipping through my extra stuff drawer. On the very bottom I found this poem, which was in that draw for at least 4 years. Reading the poem I was touched by it and felt it was time use it and to start using up my extras.
All the pinkish tone sheets I bought about 6 years ago and just never use them. I thought they would qualify. They were on clearance so I bought a whole bunch, they now sit on the very bottom of my drawer.
The top sheet was just a scrap paper that I was trying some printing on, my son took pictures of a picture and thought I'd just see what it looked like. Figured that would fit in for scraps too.
The white under the picture of my daughter sleeping was also from my scrap drawer.
The Pink ribbon, and the lace ribbon, were given to me, as part of a box full lace about 6 years ago from my sister Linda.
The Pink Rick Rack was given to me from my mom about a month ago, all her odds and ends.
The Feathers, i bought 3 years ago to make a mask for a Mardi Gras Party.
The little butterflies I have had forever lol. The only thing that is new.. but not bought for this layout is the Prima flower branch.
POEM READS This Poem is worth reading.
I Love You
I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart
Our life together has just begun,
You’re part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.
I’d daydream of the things we’d share,
like late-night feedings and teddy bears,
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC’s
I thought of things you’d want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.
I thought of lessons I’d need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above,
And Promised you unending love.
Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes,
I memorized you eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.
Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper “I Love You” every night.
I Loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart
As mother and child our journey’s begun,
My heart’s yours forever little one.
ALSO putting this into the November Ribbon Challenge Using 3 different types of Ribbon, All located on or around the picture of my daughter.
