A layout for my granddaughter Shaina

This was a layout I did for a challenge at Gotta Pixel. It is a scripture challenge. I am a moderator on the site so I try and be active in the challenges and forums. They are fun to do and I usually end up learning something in the process and at times stretching out of my comfort zone. This kit was for a designer at Deco Pages, Becky Casey, and the kit is called Country Love. It felt soft and comfy so I used it for the challenge.

Shaina was just a few hours old in the photo on the left. We did not know at that time that she had food allergies to things that her mom was eating and she was getting through the milk. Normally, after the babies eat, they are happy, content, and sleep. She would scream for hours. We were so happy when it was finally discovered what was causing her screaming and discomfort. I was not able to bond with her as much as I would have liked due to the fact she would only settle down with her mom those first few months, and after that, I ended up in Paris France! At least now that she is getting older we have gotten to know each other more and I do get to spend time with her in the summer when we are home on our vacation. The photo on the right was taken on the day she was baptized. I just love the baptismal dress she was wearing and the cute little head band.
