If you don't have a smile I'll give you one of mine

This is a present for the nurses in SCBU, nothing I did tonight came out right. I had this in my head for ages but when I went to actually do it I couldn't....
I used a poem for premature mothers that makes me cry everytime I read it and I know it helped me so much when I read it the first time. I suppose there is only so many boxes of biscuits they can get as a present....

Even the darkest night will end

& the son will rise
Well that's it, my belly to birth album is full. Going to have to start making smaller albums or it will cost me a fortune!

Christmas card

So easy it's ridonkulous
Covered the card in dark paper, ripped a piece of card for the snow, added the gold padded embellishments (think I got them in Lidl last year)and added glossy accents for snow.
Ran out of cards then, so looks like I'll be buying the rest!

The Book Of Eli-chapter 1

Stupid iphone washed out the black and the quote on the tag that says Babies are a nice way to start life

You're my hero- in the first 5 weeks of your life you have shown more strength and determination than I have ever seen or could do myself. You inspire me during the bad days and make me look forward to the good.

I LOVE Tim Holtz's new Lost & Found paper stack, it inspires me so much and always seem to create what I want. The stamp is from Paper Trey Ink (thanks Emma!) and they are some of the cutest stamps for babies I have ever seen!

Time Flies

A card I made for a friends birthday, not a usual birthday card! I used Lost and Found paper stack (LOVE these papers so much I dont want to use them!) UTEE'd the bird cage and stamped and inked the bird behind it (cant really see it with the bad photo). Glossy accented a clock (yo can see  missed the edge of it!) and embossed the phase time flies. I like how it came out :)

Big Foot

One of the last scans (one of 26) Eli kicked the scanner and we got a great shot of his big feet! I took a photo last week of his foot pushing out the incubator door, so thought it would be a great scrap opportunity!
Sketch is a creative scrappers sketch, who else!
Sorry my photo editor is out of date so can't edit it!

Baby card

No not for us, been meaning to make it for a while and it was just one of those cards that pressure on me until it was done so in the end it turned into a chore *sigh, card making just isn't for me!

Sweet Dreamer

I'm back, I'm back wooooo
Journalling reads:
Wonder what you are dreaming about, all you know is incubators and needles- maybe dreaming about coming home with us
With such lovely photos I don't need to do much
