Card I made for our niece who recently had a baby! BTW, I went to see baby Abigail when she was 6 days old and she's adorable and so teensy!!!
This is the inside writing area.
And a cross stitch that I kicked butt on, because I started in mid-May for an early June birth! I needed a frame and rather than get a generic one, I bought a plain wooden frame, painted it pink and then added the 2 flower stickers. The stitched lettering gave me fits and I ripped it out a few times before I got it right. I was pretty bummed that the lettering in the picture on the kit looked nothing like the lettering instructions given for the alphabet and numbers.
I also did a Fathers Day altered book project for my honey. I was so excited to do it and it only took about 2-3 hours and I was sad it was done so quickly. I'm leaving the pics in a small size to make them as anonymous as possible, as I've not asked the kids if it's OK for me to post pictures of them here. I also haven't posted pictures of this project on Facebook because I don't want the kids to be embarrassed or uncomfortable with their baby pics being shown. The first on the cover is him with them at Disney World from 2000 when they were still quite small. (You can click on the pics to make them bigger though).
The photos on the left side of each page are of Russell with each child when they were babies or toddlers, plus a small professional picture of them and the right side of each page has a recent photo of him & each kid. I spent quite awhile looking at all his old photos and it's true what they say: First child is in 1000 pictures, second child in 200 by themselves and the rest with their older sibling, third child appears in most photos with his siblings! lol I had my pick of great photos of his eldest, but boy did I have to dig for ones of the youngest!!
His oldest son
His daughter. She is the only one of the three who knew what I was doing because I had to get her over here to shoot her pic with him!
Youngest son. This pic of them, taken one Sat. when they went golfing together, was what gave me the idea for this project.
The 2 youngest visited us one afternoon so I got a pic of them with him, and then I had to add a cut out of one of his oldest, because he lives in Ohio now. They've told me in the past that it's next to impossible to get all 3 of them together in the same place, so this was my only option!
