My unborn Grandson


Yesterday was a day to remember for the rest of my life. I was invited to the 3d scan of my new grandchild. A little boy! Megan wanted a sister but Im sure she will be happy with a brother as she has been calling baby bean Alexander! Baby looks just like Megan and daddy. Afterwards we rushed round the shops to buy something for a boy! lol. Shelley has only just finished sorting out what she wanted to keep of Megans. So she will have to buy more! Never mind, nanny loves shopping.....

I was lurking earlier on my dear friend Jackie's blog. She had made the most beautiful boxes. So nipped over to the tutorial made by Kristina of Taylored Expressions and this is what I made.
I love the colours of this card. Made with a Penny Black stamp. Ribbon from Poppicrafts. Paper from a paper stack from DCWV.
I took this picture this morning of my darling granddaughter Megan. She was running around with her muslin cloth on her head.
