Crafty Secrets Baby Girl "HomeSpun Cotton Scraps"

I have some baby girl projects to show you , done with Crafty Secrets "Homespun Cotton Scraps"...but first I have to thank my dear friend Lidy for picking me for one of her 10 , "You make my day" award recipients in this post. You have to check out Lidys blog French Garden House, and also her store HERE, to see the BEAUTIFUL things she has posted. I mean really beautiful! Thanks Lidy!
I'm supposed to name 10 bloggers who make my day now... and that's hard because there are so many of you who comment and email that make my day, but dont have blogs for me to link to ... and then there are those that I link so much, they're probably sick of me. lol I never know where to begin. This time , I'm going to link some that I havent linked before and also some that totally make my day...that dont have blogs!! l

Janel- beause she is such a good good friend!
and Sharon from NE-because she makes me LAUGH! (alot)
Country Liv -because she shares her great sense of humor and always makes my day with her sweet comments!
Jill from Scrappy Gourmet..because even though we've never met in person and I feel like I've known her forever!
MJ - because her comments make me smile and so do her stories about her girls K and N. It takes me back to when the boys were little.
Sandy (and Cindy) my little Canadian buddies...because they take me as I am...the good days and the bad. lol
Shawn- because I love how passionate she is about "family "( and about scrapbooking)
Kimmy- beacause I love her style and her free spirit!!
In a Pinch Designs- Because I've been enjoying their post..esp the one with the sign "Keep Calm and Carry on". lol ( it's my new motto)!!!

You guys totally make my day!!!

Whew... Okay here's what I have to share today. These projects were done with Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage, Papers ( from the Radiant paper Pad), "Homespun Cotton Scraps",(Baby Girl), and "Sweet Chips" Chipboard pieces.

I love to alter these little shadow box things. I think they are from Provo craft, but I'm not totally sure. All I know is they were $1.99 , and I grabbed a bunch! lol
The photo is of sweet baby Addison, My neice Amy and her hubby Johns , new baby girl. Isnt she a doll?

Hard to believe that gorgeous image is printed on cotton, but it is.

This time I just put a quick coat of paint on the Chipboard peices.

Buttons,Buttons, I always have this obsession with buttons for some reason. lol

Here's a little Onesie. I stitched one of the images on the front..with a little lace around it. guessed it... buttons again. lol

I could not resist a ruffly bottom. tee hee

Hoping to add some little stamped rosettes from the Baby Girl stamp set, but need the correct ink ... so for now , I'm waiting.

Tomorrow is my last day to post for a while because I'll be at CHA. I have my first "Begining Scrapbooking class" to teach at Luthern Family Services tomorrow night and then I leave for CA early Friday morning. I'm excited about the good turn out for the class tomorrow night .. I think it's going to be fun! Between that and CHA, I'll have lots of photos to share when I get back next week!
Tomorrow I'll be sharing my Scrappy Gourmet Project kits for this month. They are available for sale now HERE.
See you tomorrow!

That photo of Addison is breathtaking! What a lovely project!

With that out of the way, thanks for linking me to your blog and your kind comments about my blog & about K and N's antics! Glad I can transport you back in time and yet not remind you of the upsets and dangers of pottytraining and preschoolers...

Wow, your shadow box is gorgeous! I'm a sucker for pink, lace, and babies!

Country Liv . . . said...

Awe, Vicki! I don't know how I would get through my day if I didn't come over to see what you've been up to! I really don't know how you do it but you sure make me get up off my behind! Thanks for the kind words and link!

I simply adore the little shadow box and little Addison is beautiful. I want to be able to do something like that again some day. I go to the doc on the 14th and I'm hoping he'll give me a scrip that will let me use my thumbs again! (you know, it's our thumbs that set us apart from God's other creatures, and right now I'm about as useful as a sloth!)

I can hardly wait to see the photos you take at CHA. Isn't Jill going? You should be able to meet her there. She is such a sweetie, you cannot help but feel like you've known her for years.

Well, it's almost midnight here and I've got some soaps to catch up on. Have a wonderful time at CHA!
