CASE Study #98 - baby shower


Did I tell you that I am going to be a Great Aunty? My eldest nephew and his fiance are going to have a little girl in a few weeks. Since most of my nieces and nephews are younger than my own children (who are 9 and 4), I believe that I may not get many more great nieces and nephews for several years. I plan to thoroughly enjoy this little girl (and any siblings she may be lucky enough to have). It's almost like I get to play at being a Grandma, LOL!  I am going to the baby shower in a couple of weeks, so I made this card.
My card uses PTI Baby Button Bits, and Limitless Labels. Colours are SU! Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Barely Banana, Pretty In Pink, and Memento London Fog.

The inspiration for the card came from CASE Study #98, where Kristii Lockart is muse this month. Kristii's cards are gorgeous, and I have only just discovered her. If you haven't seen her work, please take a moment to visit her blog. 

This was her card.
From Kristii's card, I took the baby theme, I stamped my hearts and stars surrounding my central image, and I used the basic layout. It's a bit of a looser interpretation than I usually do on CASE Study challenges.

Oh, and one more little photo. For those of you who don't know, this is Coco. She is my photography assistant. When I sit on the floor to take a photo (to get the best light near the window), she gets right in there beside me (in front of the lens if she can at all squeeze in there). 

Thanks for coming to visit me.
