Words To Remember...

Well, it had to happen sometime! I'm going to be a "Bella" in March or April! Yep, my oldest child is expecting! I prefer to not be called anything starting with the letter "G" - it's just not "me"! I'm excited for her and her partner and hopefully time will fly by quickly! She mentioned recently wanting to keep notes of things to tell the baby and to show the baby so I decided to make her a notebook! I had seen this paper being used for other projects before and I just knew it would be perfect for this one! It almost looks like "Bambi" doesn't it? Here's the notebook!

I covered one of the $1 notebooks from Michaels with the paper. It's called Walk in the Park by October Afternoon! It's double sided so the gridded blue is what you'll find on the other side! I also used some stamps,CTMH "Expecting", I borrowed from one of the AFIT wives here named Alicia! She's the sweetest lady who has the most adorable baby! Anyway, she'll soon have a blog of her own! Back to the card, I also did some random stamping on pages on the inside too! All in SU inks! I chose not to do a lot to it as I see it getting a lot of use!



I also made a card to go with it using all the same supplies as before except the card base is SU Close to Cocoa! The ink on the front is SU Chocolate Chip! The flowers have rhinestones in them that I picked up at Target! I like to get their $1 body rhinestone tattoos as they are cheap and work great on the projects I put them on!



I hope you like them and that Jessica does too! If you're inclined, could you keep Jessica in your thoughts and prayers? She's doing great but being a diabetic (insulin dependent) she has some rough spots at times! We all appreciate it!

Until next time....

What a pretty notebook! I'm sure it'll get lots of use - and what a nice idea. I'm sure your daughter loves it. She doesn't even realize yet what a wonderful gift it will be for her baby!
