Memory Keeping with Annie's Paper Boutique

Hello all!  Today the Trendy Twine DT has some memory keeping projects to share with you.  Hop on over to the Trendy Twine blog for the other inspiration!  
This project is a very personal one for me.  I guess you could say that this is a huge reason why it is so important to DO memory keeping posts!  My baby girl was born in July very unexpectedly.  She wasn't due for another 5 weeks.  Everything happened so fast that there was no time for steriods to help develop her lungs, so she had periods of apnea and subsquently was flown to a NICU where she spent the first three weeks of her life.  This is the very beginning of her story!
 The stamps from Feeling Funny and Feeling Happy were perfect to document the wide range of emotions that we went through that day and the days following.  I also used stamps from Documenting the Everyday and Documenting the Everyday #2 for the words on the Kraft Mini Seed Packet and Card and the green arrows on the "Feeling" journaling area.  I also added a Hello Fall Trendy Page Dot to the kraft card along with Twisted Lime Trendy Twine.  The inks I used were VersaFine Onyx Black, and Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Abandoned Coral and Fossilized Amber.
Of course, I added a picture of baby Autumn that I took when they wheeled her into my hospital room.  She was in the isolette, intubated and with an IV.  It was very hard seeing her like that!  I added Totally Lemon Trendy Twine and Twisted Lime Trendy Twine to embellish the Layout.  
 Last, but not least, I added several Pink Diamond Sparkling Gems around the flowers on the paper.  All the papers used are from DCWV's Flower Shop stack.
Remember to stop by the Trendy Twine blog for more memory keeping inspiration.

Annie's Paper Boutique is running a fantastic sale of all four of the stamp sets I used on this layout page.  Free Domestic shipping is included!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
