HNC Feb 20 - "Happy Birthday"


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! A beautiful page which must have been hard to do. Like Sara said I hope it brought you some happy thoughts.
    What a great idea, and a wonderful way to preserve your baby book. Happy birthday!
    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.
    What a wonderful page. Lovely way to celebrate your birthday; celebrating your "birth-day." Mom would be pleased, I'm sure.
    My, you were tiny! How wonderful you found this 'message' from your mom. Such a neat page, I like how you blended all the pieces and such nice texture, too.
    Happy Birthday! Darling page. I love how you included your mom's writing from your baby book.
    And it is never too late to post a layout for a challenge. :)
    Happy Birthday and I love your LO --so sweet!
    I love all the texture on the page! I also love the blended photos. What a lovely page.
    So soft and pretty - happy soon to be Birthday!
