Hi there! Baby mini book started :D.

Hi there! I’ve been MIA all this week on the blog. We got back from Orlando on Saturday and have just had a whirlwind of stuff to do on the home front. Plus being off work for 2 days really left me with A LOT of “make-up” work to do when I got back (on Tuesday). I’ve just been too exhausted every night when I get home to craft this week.

My kidlets had the best time in Orlando though! We didn't go to any parks, just hung out with my sister/brother-in-law and our nieces. My kids absolutely LOVE being with their cousins!!!

I did start a mini-book for my friend who just had a beautiful baby girl, but haven’t really done much with it because I want to have all of the pictures before I really dig into it ;). Here’s a preview though:

I used a Maya Road “house” mini & covered it with Fancy Pants’ “Baby Mine” patterned paper (and then filed/sanded the edges). I picked up the 6X6 paper pad, a few 12X12 pages, the buttons, cutout shapes and some pretty ribbon from Paper Niche a few weeks ago & have just been waiting for Mia’s arrival to get started. It is such a beautiful and fun little collection! Here’s a picture of baby Mia Grace:

Isn’t she just adorable?!? My friend Melissa is amazing! She gave birth to this “little” 9lb (!!) girl all natural at the Birth Center (which is where I had my 2 babies - the same way. Thankfully, they were in the 7lb range!!). She’s super-woman!

Anyway, that’s it for me this week, just wanted to stop in and say hi ;). I hope you have a great day and an amazing weekend friends!


  1. Looks like it is going to be a wonderful book!

  2. What a sweet book! Love the patterned papers. She is going to love it! A 9lb. baby naturally? wow! She needs an "honor badge." (hee hee). Congrats on your Lawnscaping nod! Definitely deserved...your card was AMAZING!

  3. Looks CUTE
    Have a great week

    hugs !!!
