HNC Feb 20 - "Happy Birthday"

I decided to do a "3 Photos" HNC layout and when I came to post discovered that challenge was from a few weeks ago, so sorry about that... :(

 

Today is my birthday and in a few days will be three months since my Mom died. I was feeling sad thinking how I'd never had a birth-day without a Mom when I found my baby book and started looking through. I scanned this page and blended it into the pink background. That's my Mom's handwriting with all my birth info - hard to read where she noted my hand and fingerprints as "very tiny" since I was almost 6 weeks early.

I added my name, date and the top two photos - Mom and Me at two months and my Mom, Dad & me on my first Easter when I was almost three weeks old. The middle photo which is actually on the baby book page is my two-day-old hospital photo which my Mom always disliked, saying I was "so much prettier". Just like a mom...

For this layout I used:

STI Newborn Collection

SNU Brush set: Painted

JRA SS Embellishment Templates: Photo Masks - Watercolours

Oh, Marilyn! Happy Birthday my friend! Your page brought tears because I know you're missing your sweet Mom and I hope that scrapping your "birth page" brought you some happy thoughts. It's lovely - just lovely. I hope today brings you nothing but happy thoughts and lots of good wishes - I know you have my good wishes!

Happy Birthday, Marilyn! This is just extraordinary and a wonderful tribute to a mother's love. It was, I'm sure, a very emotional process. I love how you shaped the top right photo into a heart.
