She's Here! - Welcome baby!

Hello and welcome back! Today's project is something I made for my brand-new grand-niece, who was just born last week. She lives 800 miles away so I've only seen pictures, but she is perfect! Compared to the bruisers I gave birth to many years ago, she is a little peanut, only weighing 6 lbs. 9 oz. 

The colors in her room are blue and gray, but since she is a perfect princess, I had to add some sparkly pink! There is a mix of current and retired products in this project - luckily, I have a huge stash of old stuff!

I love the additional sparkle you get from Wink of Stella - I just wish it would photograph better! It's on the moon and the stars. I stamped the sleeping baby image from the Moon Baby stamp set, but removed the ink from the string holding the star before stamping. I fussy cut the image, then added the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper star with some Whisper White Bakers Twine that I poked through the image.

The letters spelling out her name are cut from the retired Blushing Bride glimmer paper using the Large Letters framelits. Her name was a perfect fit for this size project! For the corner elements I used some retired buttons and more glimmer paper.

Here's what it looks like all framed up:

I'll be taking it to the UPS Store and letting them pack it so hopefully the glass won't break on the way. I don't know when I'll get a chance to actually meet her in person, but I hope it won't be too long. Welcome to the world, Jocelyn Rose!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
