Meanwhile, I can't decide which I like more: scrapbooking or taking pictures of scrapbook pages. I told Patty I'd be photographing all pages from here on out. God forbid something happens to the scrapbooks . . . I would still have a record.

Griffin was born 9 weeks premature on January 22, 2003. He had two lifesaving transfusions. Before any transfusion took place someone did something amazing, they donated a little time and a little of themselves. Please do the same. You can find a local donation site by calling 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visiting http://www.redcross.org/.
We've come a long way from day one, because someone knew how important it was to give blood.
Yes, we let him get a faux hawk. It was an acceptable compromise from the mohawk, with the sides of his head painted red, he really wanted.

- I had a blast "jigsaw puzzling" the photos, cutting most down to a perfect size to fit together.
- Unfortunately, I didn't have enough of my favorite CTHM paper (it has fishes on it) to use in the layout and I wasn't about to go to the store. Embellishment improv! It was time to make some fish, to pull the whole thing together. I downloaded a fish template, blew it up to the right sizes, cut it out on Whisper White paper from SU!. Then using color pencils, I made them look like the other Trout, in the aquarium, in the middle shot. I also made some seaweed.
- I stamped the title
- The journaling is done on a piece of vellum. I hate journaling directly on the paper. I have dyslexia, so I'm apt to leave the most important word out of the sentence or switch words, so I pretty much always journal on a separate journal piece.
So there's the poop.
