Smile Big

Hi! Happy World IBD Day! Before I share my newest layout I want to share a photo of Ashlyn. I took this two weeks ago just because it was so nice to see her beautiful face without an ng tube. :) She has chubby steroid-induced cheeks with a nice pink color and a sparkle in her eye. Something that we all missed for so long. After seeing her for 14 months with a tube coming out of her nose and taped to her cheek I still cannot believe that it is gone! It has been out for 4 weeks now and I just pray that she continues to improve and we will not have to replace it. It will be nice for her to be a kid this summer.
Here is my brave, beautiful Crohn's fighter:

I was bored the other day and stumbled upon a brand new challenge site called ScrapStuffz "Inspired by". Currently there is a call for designers and as I am trying to get back into a scrappy groove I thought why not. I can commit to one layout a month, so I decided to toss my hat into the ring. It appears that there have only been a few applicants, so I encourage you to head on over to the site and check out the challenge so this site can get up and running (as well as enter a submission to be a part of a new challenge blog).
My layout was inspired by the dots/circles on the first square, the pink in the second, the stripes in the third square, and the pastel colors.
pp- Simple Stories and MME (butterflies are Basic Grey and MME)
stickers: Simple Stories
dots: MME
flowers: Petaloo and Prima (not sure about the white enamel flowers)

Thanks for stopping by!
