What a difference a year makes
As the title says, what a difference a year makes! My "moment" of 2008 is Amelie turning one, a time when I was able to lay to rest the trauma of her delivery and be sure that she hadn't suffered any ill effects from the rocky start she had in life. The first picture was taken when she was a day old, on a ventilator in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit she was transferred to as she was too sick to stay at our local hospital. The second picture was taken just after her first birthday and it's one of my favourites of her.
Supplies used: SS paper templates: Fairy Dust and Ratty Tatty 2; brush set: grungelle; SS alpha template: chipboard LC 2 (just the chalked overlay); styles: basic shadows and epoxy. Font is Lettering Delights CK Holiday Spirit.
Journalling: Amelie’s first birthday was a landmark, not just for her, but for me. Looking at her one year on, there’s no sign of any negative effects from the start she had - in fact, she made all her milestones early and is a headstrong, intelligent, happy little girl. The joy (and sometimes infuriation!) she brings has helped me move on from the trauma of her birth and just enjoy life with her.
Thanks for looking and all comments and CC welcome!
