I am completely blown away…

by all of the love I’ve been shown! I posted in the forums of my creative teams that we’d be gone for awhile & that we were getting ready to celebrate Miles’ Heaven day. I told them about how we try to do something good for others on that day because he was so very good to us. I could never have dreamed what I would find when I got home from vacation on Sunday night.

First…I logged onto digishoptalk to check the forums and just see what was happening in digi land. I saw a thread by Shannon (the site owner) that she was thinking of me and she had a link to Jessica Bolton’s thread. I clicked on the link and then I started to cry…look what I found:

I already felt so lucky to be on Jessica’s creative team…and now I feel so very, very blessed to be a part of these wonderful women. Thank you all so much!! (If you want to get this kit, go to and download it…it’s free! All you have to do is pay it forward to someone else!)

After I finished downloading it, I received messages from Rez & Cherekaye for me to check out another amazing kit. Here’s what I saw on Christina Renee’s blog:

Again, the tears started to flow. Thank you so much to all of my buddies on Christina’s Dream Team. This truly is a very amazing dream…I love all of you so much! If you want to pick up this kit, go to Again, it’s free…you just need to pay it forward.

And…check out what else I found on Lauren Reid’s blog (I swear I get to create for the coolest, most generous people!!) Thank you all so much for creating these!!

You can pick these up at

Then, on Wednesday, Christina put these up at her blog:

There’s also a challenge over there for you to check out…you can win some amazing gift cards from some super sweet, talented designers!!

I can’t thank everyone enough that has been involved in celebrating Miles’ Heaven day. I’ve seen people giving each other gifts in the digi community, I’ve seen people mention him & do something special in his memory on their blog (thanks Janet!), and I’ve seen lives touched across the globe. It has truly been an amazing, amazing experience for me.

Here are some layouts I’ve made using the kit & a couple of these are using the quick pages.

Thanks again to all who have been involved…I love you all so very much!!!

To celebrate Miles’ day, we took the kids to the zoo…they loved it! I’ll try to post more about that tomorrow. We also bought some preemie clothes that we are going to send to our NICU so that they can give them to a NICU family in need.

I hope you are all having a fabulous day…now go download those amazing kits! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • dianeskie - I can totally relate to you Kellie! My son also died just last month(March 2007). He was 3 years old already. I am here crying in front of my computer now because I can totally relate to your story. I am so touched by your last LO to Miles. How I wish I can also scrap the pictures of my son already. Whenever I am opening the picture of him which I wanted to scrap, I burst into tears. I miss him so much and I wish he was not gone. You made me realize that I am not alone. Thank you so much! Take care always! Mwuah! I am here…

  • Saab - Your special little Miles has touched so many hearts,not a bad job for such a little boy…shows you how very special he is! I have tears running down my eyes at the moment, for somebody I don’t know, but he has touched me also.

    Thank you for sharing Miles with us.

    Hugs Sonia

  • nwfotobug - Kellie,

    Thank you,

  • Anonymous - God bless you and your family Kellie.
    I lost my 11 year old son in 1988. I will see him again in heaven one day.

  • karen - Kellie, the layouts bring back many memories of my little guy in hospital. Thanks for sharing them. From one “angel mom” to another, a huge hug to you! And the tears are here!

  • Michelle Filo - The quality of the kits show how much love was put into them. I did a little layout about my Miles’ heaven day. Hope you like it:
    Best wishes
    Michelle and Family!

  • Melinda (Mindy) - Absolutely amazing and very touching. Off to give my kids another hug now! Thank you for sharing Miles’ story … he’s a very special angel.

  • Melyn - What a sweet thing for these amazing ladies to do in memory of your Angel Miles.
    I’m so very touched. I lost a baby too. Belle was stillborn at 37 wks due to a cord accident.
    Sending hugs from one Angel Mom to another.


  • Melinda - I just wanted to share a layout I’d made using the In Memory of Miles kits … you can see it here. My son Chase in the photo has hopefully outgrown the heart condition that was discovered when he was 12 days old. Your NICU photos brought back memories for me as well. I’m so sorry that your story didn’t have a happier ending with Miles, but he certainly has left his mark on the world. Blessings to Miles and your family, Melinda

  • Anonymous - Little Snowdrop

    The world may never notice
    If a Snowdrop doesn’t bloom,
    Or even pause to wonder
    If the petals fall too soon.

    But every life that ever forms,
    Or ever comes to be,
    Touches the world in some small way
    For all eternity.

    The little one we long for
    Was swiftly here and gone.
    But the love that was then planted
    Is a light that still shines on.

    And though our arms are empty,
    Our hearts know what to do.
    Every beating of our hearts
    Says that we love you.
