October 19 - A Day of Joy and Peace for Miss Boo

Double Challenge

StampTV Sketch Challenge

Christian Paper Crafts Color Challenge
(Baby Blue and Yellow)

These colors are in honor of my sons. My 15 year old son, born on July 6, 1995, weighing a mere 1 pound and 4 ounces, came home from the hospital on October 19. His favorite color is yellow. I know it's unusual, but he has high-functioning autism and he's been firm on that for a long time. On October 19, 2000, I delivered a premature stillborn baby boy. His first name was decided by my oldest son and his middle name comes from my dad. So, as hostess of the CPC color challenge, and in memory of my little boy in Heaven, I thought a traditional baby boy blue would be nice with the color yellow.
