Fresh take on baby shower card...

A super lady at work is having her second wee one...I am excited..she had such a tiny belly last time this time she looks due already and her date isn't until late September...
I decided to do something different instead of the typical baby colours and try something a bit more modern and fresh.
I used my favourite baby Unity stamp, some patterned paper I had lying around, buttons, and punch some butterflies using my Martha Stewart punch. I pop dotted the stamped image and then embellished it with Stickles and liquid pearls a touch of lace a ribbon and there you have a fresh take on a baby shower card.
Thanks for stopping in....

Grandparents...Loving the moment

These are some wonderful photos of my son and his Gido or Gid as he calls him of late. I found these file folders at Micheal's and new they were going to be a layout. The even had matching ribbons I was so excited. So I got it all home and just went where the file folders and ribbon took me. I distressed edges, inked edges, cut out the butterflies, birds and other pieces from another file folder to make the embellishments. The ribbon of course was a perfect match I only added the large ric rac which was so graciously given to me by a scrappy friend. I used glitter, liquid glass, beads(micro and seed), pearl gloss paint, and stickles for all the embellishments. I also used the tim holtz crackle paint here and there for texture...thanks for stopping in and sharing this layout with me...I love it hope you do to...the saying is wonderful.
