Bundle of Joy Layout

Hi Everyone! It's me again! This is my second post for today. :)

Today is design team day at 40:31 Creations. There are 5 fabulous stamps sets created by Lauren and there will be soon, and I mean very soon, to be released sets on the horizon. These stamps are of high quality and stamp so crisp and clean. I love them.

Our project for today was to make a layout. Now, as many of you know from following my blog, I really don't do layouts. In fact, I have only ever done one before so... this is a struggle for me. I love that I am being stretched creatively. My vision I had at first is nothing like what I ended up creating but all I can say is that I LOVE the end result. 
Isn't this adorable! The picture is of my oldest daughter. She is about to turn 16 in a few weeks. Time sure does fly! Ok, on to the details:

Cricut Cartridges ~ New Arrival, airplane and banner with all the layers, Pooh and Friends, butterfly and layers, Smiley Cards, flowers and all the layers. I hid the faces on these using my Gypsy. Plantin Schoolbook to add a tiny rectangle to the stems of the flowers to make them longer. I welded these together in my Gypsy. Zooballoo for the grass. I also used my Gyspy here to weld 2 pieces together to make it long enough to fit across my 12 x 12 mat.
40:31 Creations ~ New Baby stamps.
Peachy Keen Stamps ~ PK-532 Simple Sallies 1 1/8 and PK-754 Critter Faces Set A Medium
White and Black Gelly Roll Pens for doodling.
White pigment ink ~ I used this to sponge on my background to give the look of clouds. It's very subtle.
Foam tape and ATG

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you visit 40:31 Creations to see what my fellow designers have created today. You will not be disappointed. You can check out Lauren's stamps HERE.

Happy Crafting!

I will be submitting this for The Pink Stamper challenge because it makes me smile! :)

r u kidding me? You have never done a LO before. This is amazing!!!! I love everything about it. I don't know about you but have never ever gotten anything to look like what I had envisioned in my head I totally relate to what you said. I can't believe you have a sixteen year old daughter, you look so VERY young to have a child that age. When I saw the LO I said awwww she just had a baby so cute then I was surprised again when I got to that part. OMG this is long. So sorry. But I just love your lo and really enjoy your blog so much.


PS. I am dying to get some of Laurens stamps. E-mailed her yesterday because they are all sold out. Can't wait till she gets them back in
