Sweet Little One

My family & I are recently back from almost 3 weeks on the east coast of Newfoundland where many of my relatives live. We arranged our first ever family reunion. My uncle and two of my cousins were the master minds behind it, working for months to arrange everything. I can’t thank them enough. We took loads of pictures and I’ll upload them in the near future. We even managed to see Killer Whales up close when we were on a whale & puffin watching tour! Apparently, in over 300 trips, these whales have only been seen a few times. We saw a few different pods of whales – how totally cool!

Back to stamping (I didn’t even think of stamping while I was away) – I made a card for a friend who has just had a baby boy. I used the SCS Sketch Challenge (294) for my layout: At first, this sketched looked too daunting to me. I kept looking at it trying to figure out how the layers needed to be laid out. I ended up starting with picking the patterned paper I wanted to use and worked from there. I already had the bottle and rattle image stamped (gratefully borrowed from my friend Joanne). I tried to match up the colours in the patterned paper with copic markers that I have, but it isn’t exactly perfect. Here is the recipe:

Card Stock: 110 lb. White, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze
Patterned Paper: DCWV Nanna’s Nursery (Baby Boy collection)
Stamps: unknown manufacturer for the bottle/rattle stamp, Holidays & Wishes sentiment from SU
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, various copic markers in blue, green, yellow and beige
Accessories: Velvet blue ribbon, self-adhesive rhinestone, dimensionals

That’s all for today. I can’t wait to post some vacation pictures. I just have to retrieve them from my hubby’s computer and put them back on a disk, then upload them to my computer. Ciao for now!
