I am posting with the husband and kid all over me... literally. He has his arms draped around me while Audrey is cuddled in between us with a bottle of Capri Sun juice. And we're all in bed, lol.
Here's the frame that I referred to in my last post. I first stamped the floral images. Then I used Tim Holtz's distress inks. I used Linen first then distressed Walnut over that. I'm not sure if this was the look that I intended because I was a little heavy handed with the Walnut, but it sure caught my husband's attention when he walked past it. He said "whoa, what is that? it's nice!" :)
So, here is my little Audrey at birth, just a wee 5 pounder.
I got my very inexpensive macro lenses this weekend, so now I am able to take close up shots, like such!
It is so easy to personalize your precious keepsakes. You should all try it!
Stamps: PTI Beautiful Blooms, JustRite stamps

Since we're on the baby topic, a warm congrats to my childhood friend, Angela on her new bundle of joy. I love the name Ellie. In fact, it was a name I tossed around with Audrey. I'm more of a formal name person, so I was trying to think of names that started with "El" so I could call her "Ellie" for short; I only came up with Elenor, Ella, and Elle. Anyhow, inspired by the booties posted by Melyssa, I whipped this up for Ellie.
These little things are so stinkin' cute... and apparently real looking because Audrey tried to shove her 3x as large foot in there.
