Babies, babies, babies....

...tee hee!  No, I am not having one.  Let's not get that rumor started!  I just have a baby card to share with you today, and then some sweet images from a newborn shoot I did this week!  So, let's get started!

First up is my card for sketch 163 at CPS this week.  I had a heck of a time photographing this card for some reason!  I did custom white balances, auto white balances, different angles...it just didn't want to be photographed very well.  This was the best I could get it to look...and I am sticking with it!!   See- even professional photographers struggle at times!  Tee hee!
"Sweet As Can Be" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: K & Company
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Baby Button Bits
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: citrine, pink) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Border Punch: Fiskars

Instructions:  Fold white cardstock in half to make card base, and round two opposite corners.  Punch a scalloped strip to striped paper, and adhere to a heart paper strip.  Adhere the entire strip to the left side of the card.  Round the opposite corners of a green dotted paper block.  Round the opposite corners of a white cardstock block, stamp the pea pod to it, and adhere to the green dotted block.  Stamp the two sentiments to white cardstock strips and cut out.  Adhere them to the block, and accent with jewels.  Tie ribbon around the green dotted block, and adhere the entire piece to the front of the card using dimensional adhesive. 

That is the only card I have to share with you today, but I do have some super sweet newborn photos to share with you.  I photographed baby Tyler on Monday.  He was a week old, and just so darling.  These were my favorite shots from the day.  Hope you like them! 
Let me know what you think of them!  

Well blog readers, this next week is going to be pretty sparse on my end.  We are heading out on a little vacation with some friends and family starting tomorrow, and will be gone all week long.  I am posting my Curtain Call and CPS cards in advance....and that is all you will be seeing from me.  I hope that you all have a really wonderful week ahead of you!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea
