Baby's Journey

Good morning all!

Did you have a fun weekend? As predicted, I spent mine sniffing on the couch, but feeling a bit better now so I'm on the way to recovery! I even managed to make this lovely card, perfect for a boy or girl me thinks. What a coincidence that this fortnight's theme @ Ooh La La is "FOR A CHILD" then eh? ;) I've used an image and papers from the Shawn Jenkins Collection CD, such a fun CD with both an 'everyday' and Christmas/Winter section.

* Baby's Journey image and DPs from the latest CD (Shawn Jenkins Collection)
* Coredinations Retro Mod Squad CS scraps for the extra clouds
* Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique Paper Lace Doily
* Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink
* Button and twine from stash

If you have any new projects suitable for our challenge theme, why not link up and join the fun? Hope to see you there!
