I have not been blogging because I was cleaning house getting ready for the Gender Reveal Party at our
home. I was also putting up decorations and die cutting onesies for a banner. I had so much fun. We were so
excited to learn whether Nathaniel and Kristin were having a He or a She. They did not even know. The radiologist just wrote the gender down and put it in an envelope for them to give to the baker.
All eyes were on that cake when they were cutting it. Pink was the icing on the inside layers. So it is Baby Evelyn. I can now go looking at little baby girl clothes. HOLD me back... everything is so cute. ...

|Loved using my onesie die cut .|
I have not been neglecting my paper crafting . Since my craft room is really clean, due to the party. I have been busy making an album that my sister, Rochelle, taught us at a paper crafting party with Chris, Cathy, Mary Jo, and Lara. We had a ball. We plan on getting together to show how we finished the project. I am going to use mine for pictures of Evie, our new granddaughter to be.. Can't wait
|Love Graphic 45 paper.|
the picture 'cause it was a 12 x 12 sheet. Too big of the cover of this portfolio. I decided that crystal effects would be perfect on the moon face.
Kate, a friend of Kristin's, gave me some paper crafting items that she was not using anymore. I really appreciate her thoughtfulness. I can always use free stuff.
Elaine, my girl friend, gave receiving blankets for our new granddaughter, and some coupons for Carters in Freeport. Wasn't that thoughtful?
I used my brick wall embossing folder for Kate's card. I stamped the vine and leaves before embossing. I added prima flowers and the sentiment after.
For Elaine's card I used a stamp that I really love but rarely use. The butterfly and lettering with the word "inspire" is all on one stamp. I added the extra wing to place on top of the stamped one. I also added the purple flower. I like how it came out. I hope Elaine does, too.
|Our fall mantel|
I will end this post with a picture of our fall mantel. I decorated it with indian corn and fake leaves around the swan. I love using the gourds, too.
Hope you are having a Happy Autumn!
