Blast From the Past Blog Hop!...A Star is Born...

It's hard to believe that September is almost over, and I'm so glad that I had a chance to participate in this month's Birthday/Birth Day Blast from the Past Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions! This is an extra special hop because the inimitable Taylor has had a darling baby girl!
To celebrate, I decided to go with the "Birth" theme and make Taylor and new baby Madelyn Grace a card. For this one, I wanted to keep things very sweet and simple. I used one of my favorite TE baby sets, Bringing Home Baby (perfect, yes?) and colored in the cute baby carriage in shades of pink, adding a little sparkle with Stickles. Next, I fussy cut it and popped it up over a white card base on which I adhered a typed sentiment (with my new vintage Royal typewriter!) I added a tiny little star for the baby that is sure to grow up as big a star as her talented mama! Congratulations, Taylor (and Jon!) on your new bundle of happiness.




BEAN NOTES
