Me holding my son at 8 days old. The journalling is a poem I wrote:
When I look into your eyes, I see the world anew.
so much for you to explore and to do
I see the man I hope you become
a man of God, His strength to pull from
I pray that you are strong, honest & true
climbing to new heights & enjoying the view
But for now I will hold you as close as I can
loving you each day as you grow from a boy to a man.
I stitched the big flower, stamped on the white flower with blue staz-on ink, then put a Prima flower on top. The border I got from my Swirlydoos kit, just inked some blue on it. I burned the edges of my mat and journalling block and attached the journalling block with a safety pin.
I'm not sure if I feel this LO is finished or looks right, so if you have any suggestions for maybe changing it, please feel free to tell me!
