It's my turn to host the challenge at Bitten By the Bug2 this week. My daughter had her third child, a boy, in February. It's a natural that I selected Baby or Baby Shower cuts for the challenge this week. I put together a layout of #3 grandbaby captured from a picture of his first few hours. I want to make sure the 3rd one doesn't get left out with the pictures and scrapbook pages/mini albums.
I used several cartridges for this layout plus some special baby ribbon. The title, Special Delivery, is from '1st Few Years', the Stork and ABC Tag are from 'Wrap It Up', the duck safety pin is from 'Baby Steps', and the safety pin with the star is from 'Storks Delivery'. I put the stork and his bundle through the Cuttlebug, something I have neglected but want to use more often. I inked most of the pieces and used the Explore to write his name on the tag (hidden). For the first time, I sewed a zig-zag stitch on the photo mat. It was weird sewing on paper, but pretty easy to do. I added some doilies to the background and called it done.
Join our challenge of 'baby or baby shower' this week at Bitten By the Bug2 by linking up your project or card.
