Cricut Baby Card

It has taken me 6 weeks to actually make a card for Finns birth. I got my act together last night and made it. I cut the letters on my Cricut, using an SVG file from Sure Cuts a Lot. The shadowing was also done on SCAL. Papers and embellishments are K & Co baby boy set. Ribbons from my stash.

An update on Finn

I have been very lazy with my blog just lately. Here are a couple of photos taken this week of Finn. He is now 6 weeks old and smiling. He copies too. If I put my tongue out, he does too.

David Essex

Are you old enough to remember David Essex....Smouldering eyes? sexy grin? Well he still has them! I went to see him last week at the Theatre Royal in Brighton. All the Fun of the Fair. Fab play with great music. We sat in the Royal Circle Box which over looks the stage. Sorry the photo is not great, as it was the finale and the stage was full of smoke.

Birthday Book

My daughter Shelley has her 29th Birthday next week. So I have been slaving away the last 2 evenings making something special for her. I cut the letters by hand after using a template to draw them out. Im really pleased with it although it may be a bit dark! :lol: When I showed hubby, he said I had put a lot of work into it but he didnt like it, " Not my thing" he said...... I know Shelley will love it and I do too. Thats all that counts.

Wedding Stationary

I have almost finished the Wedding Stationary that I'm making for the girl I work with. We sat together and worked on a few layouts and came up with this very simple one. The Bridesmaids are wearing blue dresses so that is the colour scheme we used.All the invites have gone out. The Menu's are done too. Im now working on the Order of Service and hope to get them finished sometime this week.

Baby Shower

I'm sorry I havn't posted for a few days. I have been busy with Baby Showers and Wedding Stationary! We had a great time at the Baby Shower held for my daughter Shelley. After opening presents and eating and drinking we had a few games. We played Pin the baby in the Womb! :) Anagrams of words to do with babies and guess the weight of the baby. We also had to guess the diameter of Shelleys waist.

Baby Shower

My daughters friends from work have organised a Baby Shower for her. My contribution is a Nappy Cake. This is the first one I have ever made so I have only made a very small one. It looks top heavy with the bears on top! :lol: I'm Sure Shelley will like it just the same.
Shelley wanted Gift bags for the ladies attending so I have been roped into making them too. Printable downloads for the bags and tissure box covers are from Cuddlybuddly. She has covered KitKats with her own design wrapper and covered cheap notebooks all the same. The check paper is from K & Co. baby boy pad.
