Angel Book Winner & Scrapbook Giveaway

Congrats to Bree @ My Baby Butterfly Ella!

Random Number: 2

Bree has won the Angel Book Giveaway. Please email me at caring4carleigh@yahoo.com to confirm and I will get the books sent out to you!! Thank you to everyone who entered and for sharing your angel stories.


I have another wonderful giveaway for all you angel mommies for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month. One thing that is very precious to all of us is keepsakes and pictures from our time with our babies. A lot of moms choose to create scrapbooks of these memories. I have 2 scrapbooks for Carleigh only because the first one got too big that I had to start another one. I am almost done with her 2nd scrapbook.


Supplies for scrapbooking can get pretty expensive, especially for the nicer things. So what I have to give away is a $20 gift card to Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby has a great selection of scrapbooking supplies and they even run weekly ads for sales. (You can click here for store locations.) I get a lot of my supplies there.

To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment telling me what you have done with your baby's or babies' keepsakes and photos. This giveaway will end on Monday evening with the winner announced shortly thereafter.

Unfortunately we haven't done anything with the photos yet. They're locked up in our safe but I think I'm ready to get them out and put them in a keepsake book.

I started a scrapbook the moment I found out we were pregnant. Everything during my pregnancy was documented - I even went ahead and made pages for the future that would be ready for photos once our little one arrived. After we found out Hudson's heart stopped beating I continued adding to the scrapbook and made sure it was finished for the day of his funeral. Everyone passed the books (the scrapbook and baby book) around...

We have pictures of Hudson and are trying to find the perfect spots in our new home to proudly display our son. The remainder of his things we are putting in a chest with his monogram - we still have not found what we are looking for, but we will on day!

There is also a handprint imprint that we had made that will be place in our china cabinet with his picture.

I started a scrapbook the day before of her funeral and finished half of it. Right now I cannot deal with all the keepsakes. It is too soon. But I intend to finish the second half of her scrapbook. Hopefully soon...

Congratulations Bree!

Yay! I'm so excited. I never win anything. I'm so excited to start reading them.

I don't want to win again. But, I'll share too. I have started a scrapbook. It took me months to start. I found it difficult to get it "perfect" since it would be the only scrapbook I would ever make for Ella. I also have Ella's picture in a frame on my nightstand. And, I carry a little wallet sized picture of her in my wallet. I've never shared it with anyone. But, I just like knowing it's there.

I love Hudson's mom's idea of starting a scrapbook the moment you find out you're pregnant. I may do that next time. Maybe if I would have done this for Ella, I would have had more memories.

Congratulations to the winner! I started a scrapbook for Meredith about 2 years ago and it is an ongoing project. I started out by putting in the sympathy cards we had received and then I put in poems I found that I liked, scriptures, and then the few photos I have of her. I have 2 books,and I have not felt like working on it in a while, so I need to get back on track.

I started a journal of my feelings the night I came home from the hospital not wanting to forget the moment and knowing or thinking time would erase my memory. Now I know those moments have just been cemented more as time ticks away. I just got pictures back and hope to combine the journal and the pictures for a beautiful scrapbook. Plus I am hoping to scrapbook the pictures of all the flowers and the cards we were sent. Kappy

I have a scrapbook for Logan that I have put a lot of work into, but still needs some pages done. I also have a album for Logan & lots of his pictures all over the place. I have several shelves with his little knick knack things that remind me of him. :)

All I have of my little one is an ultrasound picture and the hospital bracelet from my D&C. I bought a baby book when I found out I was pregnant and started filling it out, but I stopped the day we found out the baby was gone. I put the bracelet and US picture in one of the pockets in the book. I haven't looked at it in a long time. I do have a small glass dolphin jumping over a blue heart that my mother-in-law bought for me that is in storage right now since we are living with my in-laws. I haven't opened any of those boxes since we moved. I think the dolphin is very fitting since they are my favorite animal and I love that it has a blue heart because I have always felt that the baby was a boy.

I have a little 8x8 scrapbook that I made, which includes the story of our TTC trials and my 3 miscarriages.
If I had more time & money I would love to expand on what Ive already started...

I LOVE crafts and scrapbooking - actually, so does my 4 year old, otherwise I'd never get a chance to work on any of my projects!

We have a collage frame on our fireplace with pictures or Ethan in it, along with a special snow globe we were given and my pregnant willow tree figure. I'm planning on making a shadowbox eventually of his outfit and some of our other favorite things. Right now they have a special place in my hope chest at the foot of our bed.

I have yet to start the scrapbook for William. But I bought quite a few items at Hobby Lobby for his memorial service (pretty much anything that was for baby boys). Everything is now in a curio cabinet in my living room. I also put his little hats and things ladies from the hospital made in a shadow box. I bought him a few outfits that we took pictures of him in and they are in a shadow box as well. He has a special little corner in my living room where I display everything. I have a matching curio cabinet with some of Jason's keepsakes too.
