Thanks SCS for getting me off my butt to start scrapping my little boy's first year. He was very premature and I didn't like going down that memory lane but time gives you perspective and these humble pages are the start of many pages to come. The challenge was to dust off the first set you bought and for me that's Greetings Galore. the writing says... H is for hooray! After 1 month you came off the ventilator and were breathing on your own! For the first time we truly felt hopeful!

Very cute page! That's great that you have been able to start this memory journey. That's great that he was off the vent at one month old. My first was 16 weeks premature! It took a month just to get back to his birth weight of 1 pound 4 ounces! I'll have to check my scrapbook to see when he came off the vent. I think it was 2 months. Good thing we have scrapbooking to help us remember. My son is now 10 years old!

Oh man! That is just perfect for this challenge!!!!! :) What a terrific layout - you've inspired me to get scrappin! And - like you and jen70, my little boy was premature. Eight weeks premature and a whopping 3.3 pounds. Sounds like a giant! :) He is now six and you would never know he had been a premmie! :) WOW again on your scrappin' pages!!!!!!!
Very sweet little boy! My first was a premie--long time ago! Now he is 15 and in high school.
Happily stampin' away the day!

He so cute!! H could also be for handsome too. Bet he'll be chased by all the girls when he grows up. I'd better get my scrappin going. I haven't even started my kids albums and they're 13 and 9. :shock:

Cute pages!!! I haven't been scrapping since I started stamping. I'm so far behind!!! I really need to get caught back up. I used to stay caught up. Never had a premie but my next door neighbor did. Baby girl. She had to stay in the hosp. for 3 months. They named her Fortune. She's doing fine now. Will be 1yr old in Sept.
