pages for stellan

About a month ago, i responded to a request for some scrapbooking to be done for little stellan. you may or may not be familiar with his mom's blog My Charming Kids. Well, little Stellan is fighting for his life, his heart is beating far to fast for too long. Tomorrow, he'll be airlifted to Boston for another operation. Please keep this family in your prayers as they are going through an unimaginable trial right now!

Here are the pages I sent off to another blogger today. She posted her's in the blogfrog community (they are great) and it's cool that our pages will lead well together in the album.
