Hold Me in Your Arms – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Welcome to another Thursday, which means, I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a project to share. Our youngest son is going for eye surgery at 8:45 this morning and it’s got me a little bit freaked, so this week, I went with a layout using a couple of photos from the first time Matthew held him. The whole pregnancy, we were worried about how Matthew would handle having a baby brother. He was so used to being the youngest and seemed to love that role in our family. Well, we were very pleasantly surprised by his reaction. He fell in love w/his baby brother the moment he saw him and 3 1/2 years later, Christian still has Matthew and his other brothers and sister wrapped around his little finger. 😀

I was also inspired by the sketch and song prompt from Scrap and Music sketch #19. Here’s what I came up with:
