Lily birthday party details~

We're having Lily's 2nd heavenly birthday/memorial on July 31, 2010 (her bday is actually August 3rd) and I'm actively planning all the little details. You know, the details that all parents do for a yearly memorial for their dead child *note sarcasm*. I do take her party very seriously though and try to pour as much love into the small things like I would do for her if she were here...

A candle to light in her memory on her birthday and a Lily angel magnet
I don't know if you can tell by this pic but Jesus is holding a child and they are both looking at a butterfly~
A description of what the butterfly symbolizes in the babyloss community~
The definition of what the butterfly symbolizes in Christianity (We are followers of Jesus Christ)

I'm asking all of my family members to do a random good deed for a stranger and to give that stranger this card~

All of these items will go into this bag~

Just wanted to give a close-up of the fold of the bag~ Could you find a more perfect stamp?!?

I love it, the stamp,the fact you are planning such a detailed memorial,the random act of kindness...all of it. It sounds perfect! Only I wish she were here with u instead. Are you inviting a lot of people? Audrey's is just around the corner and I'm looking for ideas.
