And so it began... a layout for Scrap A Little using Cosmo Cricket

A while back Helen at Scrap A Little contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in being a guest designer! It took me off of three seconds to reply with 'heck ya'! Okay, I didn't really reply with that, but that is what I was thinking! Helen has lots of FANTASTIC sketches on her blog. Make sure check it out. If you would like to see the post with my feature, click here.

Here is the sketch she sent me, Sketch #52:
Cute huh?

Here is my take on it:
I used the DeLovely line by Cosmo Cricket. The pictures were taken from one of our trips to OHSU for Maddy's 'going' issues. What an experience. It was heart breaking to hear her scream through her blood being drawn and another test. And even worse to have them yield no results. :-(
I did some hand-stitching. Its take more time than I like, but I am usually happy with the end results.

Its kind of perfect timing for this feature as Maddy is going back in for more testing this coming Monday. Any prayers are greatly appreciated. No matter how big or small the test are, it is hard to see your baby go through the 'unknown' to you.

A few weeks ago, Peyton, Maddy and I were upstairs in the family room when Chris got home. Maddy got excited and said she was going to hide. This is her hiding spot:
No, I did not leave her alone like that. Yes, I did explain that it is not a good idea to put a bag over your head and consider that a hiding spot. BUT, I could not help a quick giggle and picture of her hiding spot. Which, by the way, she sat VERY still and VERY quiet til Chris came up to find her!

Thank you for stopping by!
