Welcome Home LO

This week is Design Team #1's week to inspire you at Celebrate the Occasion!  The DT came up with some beautiful projects for Challenge #5!  The theme this week is New Arrival (new baby or puppy).  I love joining in the fun with my fellow design teammates so here is my New Arrival project for this week.  I made a 2 page LO using my Imagine and the Nursery Tails Cartridge. 

The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear New Arrival is laundry...lots and lots of laundry!!  How does such a little bundle of joy create so many dirty clothes!!

My oldest E was 16 months when we brought her little sister home and she was thrilled with her.  The first thing she did was grab her new sister's hand and gave her a High Five!  Then she took notes and started taking care of her baby too!

My favorite part of being a new Mommy is all the snuggling!  I love the way newborns curl up on your chest in their fetal position and you can cup them with one arm.  That feeling is priceless and I am so blessed to have had three little gifts from heaven to snuggle!

I really wanted this LO to make an impact so I popped everything with dimensionals!  I just love the layers and I love the little wooden cloths pins that I found in my stash too! 

Products Used:
  • Stampin' Up! CS, Dimensionals and Ribbon
  • Nursery Tails Cricut Cartridge
  • Nursery Rhyme Cricut Cartridge (title)
  • Martha Stewart Lacey Punch
  • Jolee's by You Clothes Pins
  • Signo White Gel Pen
If you haven't done so already, go to Celebrate the Occassion, check out the Design Team's beautiful projects and link up your New Arrival project by Sunday March 20, 11:59pm (EST).  Invite a friend to the challenge too!  We love to see all your cards, layouts and projects!  The winner will be entered into the drawing for this month's prize!  March's prize will be a Rock Princess Cricut Cartridge!!! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
