Scrapbooking Hard Things: The Blue Blanket

As this new year kicks off one of the biggest goals I have for myself is to scrapbook Isaiah's pages. Our family needs a remembrance book for him and his short existence here on this earth. 
I know that some of these things will be very difficult for me to put down on paper, but I also believe that it will be so therapeutic. A dear friend of mine shared the book that she made when she lost her daughter and said it has been a tremendous thing for their family. 
So, without further ado here is a layout I made about the blanket that we will never use to wrap Isaiah in. It's hard to explain the things you mourn when you lose a child in the womb. You don't have memories of their life here on earth to mourn over, you feel such a sense of loss over what will never be. You mourn the loss of the possibilities of things.


I'm getting back into using the sketches from Scrapbook Steals

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and try to brighten someone's day if you can.
