A Baby Girl & More Vacation Pix

A sweet, sweet family recently had an addition to their family - a precious baby girl! I used Sketch Challenge 237 at Splitcoaststampers. I so love using their sketches - the layout is always the hard part for me...they make it easy!

All the DP is scraps I've had left over for quite some time - not sure who makes them, but I know I purchased them at Hobby Lobby. I so love the colors...of course, I'm a pink kinda girl! :D

I colored the baby carriage using Copics...I see now I should have blended a bit more - OOPS - but still like how it fades!

I used some buttons as the wheels, a bit of sparkle on the center of the flowers too. I cut out the 3 openings along the top and bottom of the carriage, adhered a white piece of card stock to the back of the carriage and then adhered the entire piece to the pink card stock. I like those white pieces popping through the carriage. (don't forget, you can click on any picture to see a larger version)

We're sending the card with lots of love and can't wait to meet their newest addition!!

Here are a few more pix from vacation - these are all from Yellowstone Park. We got within 30 yards of the grizzly bear cub - they estimated it to be about 2 years in age as it was no longer with its mother. It didn't even BLINK at all the people! Just continued turning over roots and eating. LOL

I also got very close to the buffalo - a bit closer than my husband liked as he hollered at me to not get any closer.

I LOVE the pictures of our little ones at Fishing Bridge - some of my favorite pix. The last few were taken while we were waiting for Old Faithful to erupt. She doesn't erupt as often as she used to. The entire time in Yellowstone, my DH kept saying "it's better to be 15 minutes early and not 5 minutes late"...anyone want to guess which one we were? Let's just say we had to wait until 10:20 p.m. to see it erupt and no, there are no lights!!! :(

The last two pix are our oldest daughter trying to look cool, she borrowed my sunglasses and didn't like her small smirk in the first picture, so she added the peace sign and asked me to take it again. Oh, it made me laugh...all that at 10 p.m. at night!



Thanks for popping in; hope you're having a great week! Hugs, ~M.
