baby olivia

A last minute trip to meet up with one of my best friends in Vegas! As you know, hotels there are ridiculous. Luckily a friend let us crash at their place. Totally forgot they were expecting! With Thursday's record blackout, I luckily had Friday off to complete a little gift for their baby Olivia.

Here is an altered frame as I did with Brock's frame. Since they haven't decided on her middle name, I etched "baby" instead. I totally forgot to photograph this before I gave it to them so I snuck and took these horrible photos. Honestly I think it embarrassing to say "can I take a photo of this gift so I can blog about it?" Hehe.

A little personalized onesie with a princess crown on top :) And guess what, she's using it as her coming home from the hospital outfit! I feel so special.

altered comp books

Made these altered notebooks for my nieces? They are my husbands nieces so I guess they are considered mine? I get confused as families grow..Anyway.

It was actually really fun and quick, except for the part where I had to decide which papers to use and which images to use :)

procrastination is in my blood

We have a surprise baby shower for my coworker tonight...after a 2 hour meeting. I hope I get home at a decent time! Anyway, I knew about it a week ago but yet I waited till the night before to pull something together. At first I wanted to make a scrapbook like I did my other coworker a few months ago. But they didn't have the cute Heidi Swaps book :( So I thought and thought and thought maybe one of those altered frames. Here's how it came out:

It was my first time etching. Photos were difficult to take but it's his middle name, Christopher. I only hope that it's not spelt a crazy way or I'm screwed. And yes, the baby shower is more like a welcome shower since she unexpectedly had it last Friday. Here is a quick card to go with it. Not my best but it was 12 midnight and I was kinda done :)

I made an interactive card for my neighbor last year. He was soo amazed with it. But he was also drunk...But nonetheless. So this year I had to make a cool card again :) I tried out the spinner card. It's pretty fun!

I'm finally back in blog world! It's been a whirlwind with wedding planning and the wedding itself. I will have to upload projects I have made here and there but for now this is The Pink Stamper's entry to My Pinkalicious Blog Hop. The challenge is my style. Create a Critter is my favorite cartridge, definitely my go-to. I love using my I-Rock and I just had to try my new toy, Sew Easy because I love to sew and this combines my two loves, paper and sewing :)
