Happy National Scrapbook Day! Tombow has teamed up with some amazing companies like Graphic 45, May Arts Ribbon, Stampendous!, Fancy Pants Designs, Art Impressions, and Simple Stories to celebrate this fun day. They sent me a box stuffed full of goodies to play with and share with you!
I have been slowly filling up my Recollections Mixed Media Journal that I titled, "Things I Love". This is the third layout in my journal. Here is how I did the COVER and then my WEDDING THEMED page.
For the page I am sharing with you today, I used the Attwell collection from Fancy Pants Designs to create a page dedicated to my two sons, Isaac and Hayden.
Let me tell you a little bit about our first son, Isaac. We were thrilled when we found out we were expecting him, but at our very first ultrasound we discovered that he had serious complications that would not allow him to live past childbirth. In fact, we didn't even know if we would make it to full term.
We went ahead with the pregnancy because we believe all life is precious, and we wanted to give Isaac the best shot at life we could. God was gracious, and allowed him to grow to 34 weeks and 4 days. Our short time with him was precious, and I treasure the few photos we have of him.

About 8 months after we lost Isaac, Hayden's story began! The colorful theme of this layout really fits since Hayden is our rainbow baby.
We treasure each day we have with Hayden. Losing a child brought on a lot of different emotions, and I sometimes still have days where I feel all those emotions. But going through that pain also helps me put into perspective how precious Hayden- and EVERY child- is.
So thank you so much for taking the time to stop by, hear a little bit of our story, and (hopefully) appreciate how scrapbooking can help preserve your precious memories.
