It's A Boy!!

Good morning! I've got some fun news to share with you this morning.
Our 1st grandson James Anton (Jr) was born yesterday!
He is so super cute, and I am so proud of his mommy and daddy as first time parents. 
They will be great!
He was 6 days early, so I didn't even think to have this post done, but better late than never, right?

I used the Tiny Miracle SVG kit from SVG Cuts to create this super cute diaper castle for his big arrival!
I just LOVE how it turned out! I did modify the size a little bit because I used smaller diapers, but I still think it looks great!
 I used the Simple Stories Hello Baby Collection for all the paper and embellishments.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats on that thing you did!

Happy Sunday bloggers! I hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday! I just quickly want to share my Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team post. 

And again today, I've created a shaped card for a new mommy-to-be! 
The files I used on today's projects are from the PPPR Mommy-To-Be cut files. 
And of course, Jaded Blossom had a great sentiment to finish my card off! You can find the Sweet Baby stamp set here.

Your tent or mine?

Yay! It's July! Which, in my house, means it's camping time! 
We usually start camping in June, but the past month we've been having a detatched garage built behind our house, so we haven't been able to get out yet. 

Oh and just an FYI...I don't camp in a tent, but I still had to make this card! :)
Today's card is a scene card. I found all of the files on the Camping Fun cut file set. (Except for the moon, which was just a basic moon I had in my Silhouette Library.) The trees were cut from the title within the set. I actually found the sentiment first, and then based my scene around it. It's from the May Release over at Peachy Keen Stamps. You can find it here
I love, love, love this background paper from the Echo Park Happy Camper collection. Could it have been any more perfect for my project?!
