Ready to go home?
This picture touches my heart in so many ways.
It was taken the day we were taking a brand, spanking, new baby Hartly home from the hospital.
It amazes me to see the changes in not only Hartly in these two short years, but especially in Ashlyn and Holden.
They have grown and matured a little bit each day, but I can hardly believe the difference in them.
In fact I did a double take when looking at this set of pictures.
How did that happen and how can I make it stop?
A close up~
Aren’t they both adorable? Sigh!
This is my layout for the Studio Calico 5th Birthday Challenge to use something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.
My something old~ I used my very old Creative Memories circle and heart punches for several of the shapes. Love those things!
My something new~ We were instructed to use a new stamp, so I used the girl portion of the SC Hey Girl stamps.
My something borrowed~ I loved Maggie Holmes’s Pretty Girl layout from her So Cal gallery so much that I borrowed or rather stole it.
Her fabulous layout can be found here~ http://www.studiocalico.com/design-team-gallery/so-cal/maggie-holmes.
My something blue~ It had to be blue Washi tape, so I got out my new Lawn Fawn Glitter Washi tape to add a bit of sparkle to the bottom of my page.
