A Very Special Little Boy

Good Morning,

As promised, today I will be sharing some pics from the 2 scrapbooks I recently made. This 2 album set is special because the star of these scrapbook pages is a sweet little boy named William.  William’s short life touched so many people and although I never met William, I was also touched by his beautiful smile, his happy and cheery little face and his unwavering ability to completely capture everyone’s heart.

In total, there are 40 pages, some of which I will share with you now.  I had 34 pictures to work with and added other pages for notes, memories and letters.  I have used various dies, Scan N Cut, MS Word, quotes from Internet, ribbons, pearls, pearlized envelopes, hand punches, string, and various embellishments.  I also used 2 teddy bear die cuts that I received from Candace in a past card making swap.  Page 22 is a scent page that includes a piece of wool felt inside a clear acetate envelope that can be sprinkled with William’s favorite bath time scent.

The albums were presented to Mom and she is thrilled to have such a wonderful keepsake. It was truly an honor for me to have made this album.  I, too, have been forever touched by beautiful “Sweet William”.

Thanks for visiting my blog this week.  I hope that you all enjoyed meeting William, a truly remarkable little boy.

    Words can’t express the gratitude for all the hard work you put into making this book for his mom. The level of detail and personal touches that you put into making such a wonderful keepsake for her to remember her wonderful little boy was truly touching. I’m so very happy to have been able to share his story with someone who truly captured what he meant to those fortunate enough to meet him.
