Laura's sketch no.20 over at 2S4Y was way too enticing for me not to create my own interpretation of it. This is such a well-balanced sketch which I thoroughly enjoyed and might attempt a scrapbooking layout based on it. All the stamping was done with acrylic stamps I received during a Xmas swap last year. The bling was also some freebies I received during previous card challenge entries. Seeing that all the patterned cardstock is from Basic Grey's Two Scoop's range, I have also entered it into this week's Basic Grey challenge which is pink and green colours. And of course the cute butterflies make the creation also eligible for Arty Girlz challenge which is butterflies. So please hop over to all these great challenge blogs and enjoy the gorgeous talent of their Design Teams.
Here's a peek at yet another watch slider bracelet commission. Well, as you all know, Michelle loved here bracelet, so lets hope that this one will also be a winner. I just love the olive green Sarovski crystals of this creation, it goes with so many other colour combinations.
At last here are some of my niece Heidi's baby shower which took place on 31 January. She received some lovely clothing items as well as loads of cute baby blankets. Can't wait to see Marko in the cute camouflage outfit ... shoes and all. Heidi's cesarean is scheduled for 10 March which is less than 2 weeks from now and she says that she can't wait, as she is getting so heavy, uncomfortable, hot and bothered and walks like an old lady up and down their home's staircase. Heidi, just hang in there, once you're holding little Marko in your arms, all the sacrifices would have been worth it.
Liesl, Heidi's younger sister, made sure that all us ladies at the baby shower were thoroughly entertained. She even had a general knowledge quiz sheet with the theme of 'Mother' featuring in all the answers. After the baby shower, the husbands were put to the test by the same quiz and it was conclusively evident that women knew more about motherhood ... which is the way it should be. But hats off to the men, as they took all the ladies' bambinos to a local coffee shop in Hartebeespoort Dam, where they entertained and fed the bambinos, whilst the ladies enjoyed themselves. Liesl drew this cute Ellie which by looks of it, is crazy about his dummy and boobies. The ladies had to close their eyes, were then spinned around a few times to disorientate them and then had to try and put the dummy in Ellie's mouth. Naturally this resulted in roaring laughter. The elder ladies with more life experience behind them, left the younger ladies in the dust and walked off the prizes for this competition.
