I so love the One Little Word blog! Every two weeks a new "little" word, and this week it is "MY"...... and you can come up with whatever you want to!
Ok, I had this picture of Marloes... wanted to make a Layout with it for a long time, but just couldn't get any inspiration. But this word.. did it, as she is MY first born!
So, I started having fun with paint, stamps, chipboard, Sizzlits, embroidery thread, ribbons and a glaze pen.

Fooled around with it, took me two days, but.... it's finished and I love how it turned out!

And this is MY Layout.... the journaling reads;
5 Weeks early you came into this world. So tiny, you could not even wrap your fingers around your dad's thumb. They had to put you in an incubator, and because you were so tiny, you were not able to drink yourself so you had a tube in your nose and got your milk through that.
And now, 16 years later, you are NOT tiny anymore, but a beautiful, healthy, happy and strong YOUNG WOMAN. Love you, MOM.
