Now for my projects! I hope you're having a great Labor Day holiday. A last long weekend before summer officially ends... I used Baby Boutique, Hey Diddle Diddle, and B is For Boy for my projects today. Let me show you the first two, and we'll chat then I'll show you what else I've worked on.
B is for Boy


Yes, you can do girl things with this cartridge!

 
I purchased the same paper in pink and blue. I cut the onesie and Wee One out. Trimmed out each onesie in the appropriate color, added cute little duckies.. and I "stitched" around the lettering. I added pink, and blue rosettes.  And the ribbon matches, one in pink, one in blue. I found these cute wooden carriages and I painted them and added those as well. Now all I have to do is add the names of our newest members of our family when they get here. A boy in North Carolina and a girl in Ohio. We thought the boy might get here this weekend, but it's not over yet, so we'll see. He's officially due in mid Sept. and the little girl is due in November! Babies are such a nice way to start people!
Now for additional projects:
 
I used Hey Diddle Diddle to make this layout. Can you tell I'm expecting a 5 x 7 photo of the new little boy?? I have a 5 x7 of the older brother, and I may put it here, but either one.. I purchased this paper at JoAnn's and I added a little teddy bear (with a blue stone) and a bottle tied in blue ribbon. I left room to add Tyler's or Jake's important information. Weight, height, date, etc...
 
I used Teresa Collins Baby Boutique to print out the background paper. B is for Boy to print out Welcome Little One, and it's in pink, so all ready to send to the new parents when Callie Rose gets here. I added a rosette, and pink ribbon, layered it all on a pink base. I'm kinda proud of myself for being ahead.. now to just catch up on the adults and the first grandchild (11 now)...
This card was quite the happy accident. I actually intended to make a vinyl decal for my oldest daughter's new (to her-used) car using this cartridge. Except I made a boo boo.. I was going to use the Winged Heart with the Crown, she can be a bit of a drama queen at time.. anyway, I guess I wasn't paying any attention and put the vinyl on upside down... soooo now I have a wonderful embellishment for one of her album's pages. Perhaps I'll try that again when I'm thinking clearer... I was going to surprise her but I think I'll show it to her and see what she thinks. She may want something different......
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and please have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!


The litte boy got here today! Jacob (Jake) Jonathon! 6 lbs 14 oz.

  31. Great Job Janet. You gave me some creative ideas for the baby shower I need to do decorations for in a couple weeks.. I would love to put a small book together for here too but I am in a bit of time crunch. Oh, well. I love your pages. You will need to let us know when the babies arrive and show of the pages with the babies inserted on the mats. :)
    Congratulations!
