Creating is Fun Baby Blog Hop

Hi guys! Today, the Creating is Fun DT gals and I are hosting a Baby Blog Hop. Each DT member has created a project using some goodies from Creating is Fun.

One winner will be selected at random to receive a wonderful prize package, which will consist of a $25.oo gift certificate to Creating is Fun ... so be sure to hop along and leave a comment on each DT's blog post to increase your chances of winning!

Now on to what I created.

I created this adorable little pocket mini for a friend.  She wanted an album with pics of her daughter to give to her Mother-In-Law.

This sweet little girl loves the camera so much, I had a terrible time only picking 9 photos. :) I printed the photos out on my Kodak PictureMate and left a white border on each one.  The mini-album kit is from the "Amy Butler" collection by K&Company.  The kit came with lots of cute little embellishments.  I used some of the twine that comes on the Manila Shipping Tags to tie on the sweet blue tag on the right.

On the left page, I added a layer of Light Purple Lace and a Lilac Button from Martha's shop that I threaded with some twine for the Manila Shipping Tag.  I used a bit of Light Purple Ric Rac on the right page.

Aren't these pics, the cutest?  I adore her precious looks!  I used some more of that Manila Shipping Tag twine to thread through the tag on the left.  I used a Small White Tag that I sprayed with LSG "Cotton Candy Pink" for the page on the right.

I used another Neutral/Beige Button threaded with the Manila Shipping Tag twine.

On the left page, I used a bit more Light Purple Lace.  I left the frame open at the top on the page on the right, so she could write a small note to her sweet Mother-In-Law.

I ♥ how this album turned out, so sweet and simple! :)

I can't believe it's already May!  That means it's time for another I Am Roses Color Challenge. It’s happening right now. Here’s your chance to win some amazing flowers. Head on over to the I Am Roses Challenge Blog for more details and challenge rules.

Before you leave I want to share with you the project I created for this month's challenge.  Mother's Day is right around the corner, so I have quite a few cards that I need to make.  I ♥ how retro this card turned out, not what I originally had planned...but sometimes that's how it works out! :)

This month's color challenge was to use purple and teal/turquoise.  In my stash I found the "Flea Market" 8x8 Specialty Paper Pack by Making Memories that had both colors in it, so I knew it would be perfect for this card.  I layered the DP onto some Kraft Cardstock by PaperTrey Ink.  I stamped the sentiment using the "Happy Mother's Day" stamp by Verve Stamps onto some Cream Cardstock by PaperTrey Ink that I had sparyed with "Royal Amethyst Fire" Glitz Sprtiz by LSG.

Since the card was looking a bit 70's-ish, I thought this white fringe lace would be perfect!  I added a row of iridescent flat-back pearls on top of the lace. 

Here's a peek inside... 

Other Products used:
Teal Cardstock
"Delightful Things" stamp set by CTMH
Flat-back Pearl Trim from Karlas001
White Fringe Lace from CreatedbyMartha
Leaf Trinket Pin by Maya Road

I hope you will join us for this month's I Am Roses Color Challenge.  You can get all of the details over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog.  You can also check out a quick video of my card HERE.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I can't wait to see what you will create! HUGS :)
