Stories 2016 | Love Your Brave

stories 2016 | love lift me up


I packed my bags and flew up and away from Savannah to San Antonio and you, sweet Samuel less than a month after you were born. Sure, I loved on your big brothers too as I always do and always will but it was you who took me away from my men to you.

I packed quite light: my Vera Bradley weekender and messenger bag was all I took for my 6 day round trip to Ashley's. I figured I could wash if need be and it was all about hanging out with Samuel anyway. I loved packing light. Of course, I knew I could borrow things I might need from Ashley too.

Digital Notes: For this page I used an Ali Edwards' UP Story Kit digital stamp (Lift Me Up Love) on a One Little Bird Designs digital paper. I played with the opacity of the stamps after coloring them (using colors from my photos). I was not interested in perfection with the stamps. In other words I didn't care if they were aligned evenly. I actually appreciate the inconsistency of the stamps and colors because it looks more natural versus digital. Additional embellishments such as chipboard are also Ali Edwards' Story kits and additional papers are One Little Bird.
