Creating Is Fun Baby Blog Hop

So it is May and I have been asked to join the Creating Is Fun Design Team and this will be my very first blog hop with these amazing gals! The theme given this month is anything baby.... well my kiddos are a lil older now and I have scrapped most of their baby pics so I decided to create an altered letter for a friend who is expecting in July.

I used photo copies of her sonograms and mod podged to the Letter. I used these amazing ivory buttons from Martha's  Zibbet shop, and some yellow thickers to spell out the lil bundles name.

Make sure and follow along with the hop for your chance to win a gift certificate to the shop.....here is the order of the hop.....so please jump to the next blog following mine!!!

     So it seems I am always doing a project for someone else, which is awesome, but it has been forever since I have done anything for just plain ole me.....sooooooo I'm making myself a gorgeous shabby chic mini album of my beautiful kiddos to display in my newly decorated shabby chic living room!!!!
    The pics in this album are some of my favs ever!!! they just look so clean in their white shirts and blue jeans, which for any of you who have kids, know it is a very rare occasion to see them clean!!!!!!!
    This mini is part of  a month long, build a mini in a month challenge, I have going on over at my FB page, Bella Creations. It is a work in progress, but will be completed this week....HOPEFULLY!!!!!!!

Here is what I have completed so far.....
Thanks for stopping by and remember..." Live for tomorrow, scrap for today"
My latest creation and Pro 31 Designs DT project is a junk journal for a very special lady who has been there for me through the "NO MOJO" days, the "I have so much mojo I don't know where to start" days, and just every day in between. Carrie girl I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done and cntinue to do!!! HUGS!!!!!

Her journal was created using the gorgeous " French Country" paper collection by DCWV. I used a acrylic spray from Recollections some embellies from K&Co. Then from the Pro 31 Design Etsy store I used the small pink mulberry paper flowers, the pink acrylic flowers, the pink pleated trim,layered with some of the ivory teardrop pearl trim. Throw in a a large silk carnation and a lil Prima and this is what you get..........

I had such an awesome time working on this project.....filling it with tags, ephemera, actetate sheets and die cuts, pockets and journalling tags.......who wouldnt have a ball!!!!! The only bad thing about a perty lil junk journal is YOU NEVER WANT TO USE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for checking out my post and you can see a video I did of the journal here on my Youtube channel!!!! Don't forget to LIVE FOR TOMMORROW and CRAFT FOR TODAY!!!!! HUGS!!!!!
