Shaved @ 28 days old

This layout goes into Asher's first year album. It's about Asher being shaved at 28 days old. I dunno if its a Chinese tradition or superstition to have the babies shaved only at certain days in their first year.

Both Adah and Asher were born with very little hair but Adah, being a girl, we just could not bear to have her bald. With Asher, we had no second thoughts about shaving him and so we did when he was 28 days old, considered having fulfilled the first month of his life. (满月)

The layout above is inspired by Pink Sketch #30. And I am submitting this for Moments Recorded 2nd Challenge for the month of April. Papers used were from Love Elsie and My Little Shoebox. I also made the little flower from my leftover scraps! Learnt that from a tutorial on YSS. This is a really simple layout and I just gathered everything together last night and pieced them this afternoon. Nice and sweet and I love the papers from My Little Shoebox. They are so versatile and I find them very suitable for Asher's first year album. A change from Sassafras Lass papers, not too cutesy and not too girly.
