Fingers crossed that this works because this is a new thing for me to try. Quite a few months ago, I volunteered to be part of a Pass The Page organised by Julie. I sort of forgot about it for a while because I was one of the last ones in the list but then I received this gorgeous layout just before Christmas. I would love to enlarge it but for some reason it gets very blurred even slightly bigger than it is but I'm sure you will head over and visit Jemma if you haven't already, and see it in its larger glory.
I took a lot of the inspiration from this layout because I loved so many parts of it. I used similar colours, several small photos and the band across the middle design.
The journalling reads "Little Alfred came into the world rather early at 26 weeks. The only unit that could take them was in Portsmouth, 1.5 hrs from their home in Poole. I was the closest of Anna's Open University friends so I called in to welcome him on behalf of all his "aunties". I'm glad I was there for one of his first photos and to support Anna. I'm also glad she had her Faith. He is a miracle."
Alfred is now 9 months and he is once again poorly and causing concern but I am sure he will fight through again. Anna's faith has helped her so much and I admire her strength and courage through this incredibly difficult journey, which is far from over.
And talking of journey's, the next stop on this hop is Deb. Just in case you get lost or started here anyway, here is the list of all the people involved in the Pass The Page.

I'm looking forward to seeing where the designs started and ended and I hope you enjoy looking at all the different layouts. Its been great fun to be part of something longer term and with some old and new blog friends.
