October Challenge by Missy
Guest Design Team Member Missy submitted this layout for the October THAT Project Challenge. She said, "When I read the challenge this month, I knew it would be a hard one for me. For the last three and a half years, I couldn't bring myself to scrap these pictures of my twins, born at 30 weeks. I haven't been able to scrap them, simply because they still make me so emotional. I felt so helpless, unable to do anything to help them get out of the NICU. And I felt guilty over not being able to carry them longer and guilty because I had to leave them to come home and care for my oldest son. It was a very emotional time for me. They stayed in the NICU for 22 days, mostly because they were too small to come home. (The hospital won't release them if they are under 5 lbs.) But you would never know looking at them today! This was a tough challenge, but I managed surprisingly well! Now maybe I can get some more of these pictures scrapped.
