Oh Baby! It's KitCat Sunday!

It's the first KitCat for 2011!!!

The lovely Lorie was our January hostess with the mostest! Lorie just became a grandma to sweet little Maxwell, so she sent us a baby-inspired kit overflowing with sparkly papers from My Mind's Eye & Penny Lane, organza ribbons and flat-back pearls in shades of blue & pink, Martha Stewart glitter & a Quickie Glue pen, AND the adorable Winter Baby in Teacup stamp & a vinyl brag booklet from Peachy Keen Stamps (which, by the way, is offering a 10% discount throughout January!) Oh Baby!

For the cover insert, I masked the snowflake portion of the image and covered the snowflake on her cap with a Prima flower, because I want this to be a "seasonless" gift for a dear friend who has a beautiful granddaughter named Cailyn. She's already 2, but I think that Grandma Gwen might enjoy keeping some of her favorite pics of Cailyn in this to tuck into her purse! I layered some of the gorgeous DP and used some of the pearls, glitter, and organza ribbon. I'll be making a card to go with this using the unmasked image and more of the papers & embellies, so watch for that in the next couple days.

Be sure to check out the other KitCat Kittens for their baby-inspired creations!

Wishing you a 2011 filled with laughter, joy, lots of crafting, and many blessings!

WOW!! Susan, this is GORGEOUS!! You so nailed this brag book, and masking off the snowflake to make it perfect for any season is just brilliant, and showcases beautifully the versatility of the stamp and creativity of the artist! You ROCK, girl! The way you worked the paper, the scallops, and the glittered scallops are stunning! Great job on this my friend! I'm so happy that each creation already has a special home! Thanks soooo much!

Love ya,

I love the layering, border punched into scallops, your sweet image is colored so beautifully!
