Scrappin To The Music

This lay out is special to me.  It's of my nieces, twins Olivia and Giavana.  Born prematurely, Olivia required major surgery at 6 days old to cut away an infected piece of her small intestine and then hooked her up to a colostomy bag.  3 mos later they went back in and reattached the intestine and hoped for the best.  As you can see from the pics both girls are just great!  Olivia is the little one on the right, not attached to all those tubes, her sister Gi had to have a feeding tube and a breathing tube for a few weeks and looked worse than she was.  It was that little peanut who was the sicker of the two.

The song was Sting's Fragile, and boy this just shows you how fragile life is.

I used my cricut with the George cart for the title, some flowers that I inked, then I glimmer misted the butterfly chip on the top left.  That came from tattered angels glimmer chip collection.  I put a couple of butterfly 3 dimensional stickers.  Nothing shows fragility like a butterfly.

I hope you like how it came.

On a different note, today I went with my daughter Sophia to Olvera Street in Los Angeles.  I went with her last year too and got this repeat performance since she was in a 3rd-4th combo class this year and it is a 3rd grade class trip they make annually.  We had a nice day.

Some of Sophia and her friends having fun.  You can learn about Olvera Street by clicking on the name, and see some images here.  It's a great day trip!
