Bloggers Challenge - Oh Baby!


***Sorry for the awful photo - haven't had time to get that new Ott Lite Bulb***

Happy Friday, hope you all enjoy the long holiday weekend. Today's Bloggers Challenge theme is Baby. I don't have a ton of baby stamps, I don't need them for my friends, but occasionally I still need them. I had yet another thing go wrong this week, and ended up with not being able to use any water in the house all day Thursday, and really feel my muse was just not on target. I did create something, but after I finished and took the picture, I tossed it in the trash.


So what to do.....I've never posted this frame I created it two years ago for my cousin-in-law on DH's side. I've known her since she was a month old, she was even the flower girl in our wedding (I won't tell you how long ago!) It was one of the items I created for her shower gift. I created it with her in mind, and the fun part is that is was published!

All Stampin' Up! stamps used on this project are now retired: Wild About You, Bundle of Joy, Flannel Plaid. The frame came from the Target Dollar Spot a few years ago, I'm pretty sure I still have some in my stash....Maybe I should get them out and get creative!

Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to click on the Bloggers Challenge link on my sidebar to visit the other players blogs to see their wonderful Baby creations.

Hmmmm, you may not have liked the project and tossed it but I love the idea. I would make a few changes but you got my created juices flowing. Wonder if I can still get frames like that.

Great framing and I'm sure it was a gift that was loved. This might be my 2nd comment, thought I left one but now I don't know ;-)

I am so proud of you for being able to throw something you've created in the trash - you probably can't imagine how hard that is for some of us.

I don't have a lot of baby stuff either - this will be a hard challenge for me.
