Precious Package-SOUS

I love my ending my work week on a Friday with a free weekend to look forward to..
I also love Fridays cause its always a reveal day for us girls at SOUS.
We have a wonderful sketch for you this week by Amyee Gandy
Here is her sketch and please visit her sketch blog to see more of her great designs.

Its not exactly the same, but I think its better to use it as an inspiration to your own style..
I'm not much for journaling so, I stuck with just the flowers..

My dd was born 5 weeks preemie and weighed 4lbs 12oz .
 So, she was a very small and precious package for me..
The photo is me and my Amber when she first came home from the hospital.
She wore baby doll clothes for the longest time..

Here are some close ups:

I thought that adding the little baby feet onto the center of the flower was cute..  :O)
