Well, I had thought I'd be playing with baby toys today with Lily (my 7th month baby munchkin), but alas she would not settle at all for me (or her mum) today. I think she needs to get to know me and trust me a little over several days/weeks first...having said that Lily is a very smart little girl and I wonder if she is just trying it on? All she really wanted was for her mum to hold her. As soon as I even tried to take her she started to grizzle. When she got extremely tired, she got so agitated I thought she was going to throw up she got herself into such a state, her mum had to take her home. Hopefully after a few visits she might settle. Are they any baby 'whisperers' out there ???
Oh well, I can post the LO earlier than expected :) The photo is of Ian's (DH) cousin Helen and her hubby Norman when we visited them in their home in Beach Haven (N.Z) last Christmas. Helen & Norman look so joyful and happy together I just had to scrap it. This LO was inspired firstly by the beautiful handmade card that my friend Geli made me for Christmas this year. I hope she understands that I had to cut it up for the fortnightly challenge on the Boxx. You can see (card below below) that the Christmas tree, the red ribbon and two circles embellishments next to the photo were on front of that card - I was lucky enough to find 'quite by chance' the same red ribbon in my stash!! I also matched the colours on the pp with those on Kaiser Christmas Carnival collection. I've based the design on December's sketch challenge over at Handmade by Suzanne and I'm really happy the way its turned out. I really love the blue & yellow, mixed in with the traditional Christmas red and greens. other supplies used: Kaiser flowers and brad, dies are by K & Company, We are Memory Keepers and Bella! Chipz; the doily is from Scrapping Outback; A2Z scraplets chip board title; Kindy Glitz; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (glacier); Cuttlebug alpha; Sakura Gelly pen; twine & ribbon from stash; VersaColor Ink and StampIt (enamelware) embossing powder. TFL and HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone
