Happy Birthday Box

Good morning. Here is a great little gift box I found when I had the Wedding Solutions cartridge out. I added some happy flowers (also on that cartridge) and stamped them with Peachy Keen Just Baby Face Assortment. The sentiment for your birthday is from Peachy Keen April 2012 release. Cut at 11 1/2" it really holds a lot of goodies. I added some paper shred and will fill with favorite candies.

Life is a Full Circle

I have a coworker and we cover for each other. He covered for me when I was on vacation and when our grandson was born and I covered for him for his sons' preschool graduation and was prepared to cover as needed as his mother-in-law entered Hospice. Who knew she would go to heaven the same day we had our grandson. As he takes time off for the funeral preparations, I offered to share my time and talent. His mother-in-law died at 43 of ovarian cancer. So sad. The ribbon color for that type of cancer is teal. I made his family 100 2" crosses from Wedding Solutions cart. I bought this cart only for the cross and have used it so often, it was totally worth it. The ribbon is from Stand and Salute.

A great day for a Birthday

Looks like our grandson Isaac is on his way!!! Got the call that water broke and labor is progressing. Waiting for the green light to get on the road and head out to see him. I am so excited to see what he looks like. I made a little bouquet to take to the hospital. Pictures of the star...coming soon.

For the star of the show I used Nate's ABCs and cute the little boy and his dogs at 6". I had to add a 3rd doggie since Isaac will soon be meeting Allie, Scout and Hobie! It is the only cut in color with all the pieces inked for dimension. I used A Child's Year and cut shadowed solids at 6" of the father and son, the mother and son and the sister pushing the carriage. Some blue silk carnations in the bottom and I was all set! Hope you like it!!

I'm a Big Sister!!!!

Preparing for the "call". Our Grandson Isaac is due any time and we are waiting. His Big Sister Makayla is super excited. Not wanting her to feel left out of all the fuss, I made her this card.

The little girl and sentiment are from Peachy Keen Life is Good Babies. I put the little girl on an Action Wobble. So cute! Hope you like it! This is one excited Nana!!
