{big baby blues!}




The PV's design team has totally rocked it!!!
I'm a part of team B, which means it is my "off week", but I loved Jana's sketch and wanted to play. :)

This is my great nephew, Griffin. Is he not a doll? Such a sweet boy!!

I started w/a piece of kraft, added some blue Bazzill, and some embossed brown cs - can't remember who made that, but it is too cute. The frame was machine stitched w/red. The title letter stickers are AC & jillibean. Maya Road chip banner pieces were covered w/jillibean soup pp & sanded. Jute was added and then at the banner joints, I glued down the tops of some Bazzill blue brads. Using doodlebug letter stamps, I stamped the baby boy's name onto a jillibean die. A piece of stash chip was tied down w/blue DMC and lastly, I added some buttons, just for fun. :)

{look at those sweet little hands holding onto the Christmas gift bag.}


Thanks to the Paper Variety girls for their fab inspiration and also to Jana for her outstanding sketch!!!


Hope you all have a great day!
hugs, patti
