Congrats To My Baby Sister!

My sister is going to be enjoying the thrill of being a grandmother.  As much as I love being a grandmother I know Cindi will enjoy it beyond her imagination.

I went through my older photos just remembering when Cindi was born.  My first memories of Cindi are her crib and above her crib was wall decorations of Winkin, Blinkin, and Nod.  My other early memory is that she cried a lot when she was put to bed.  Mom made me stand by the crib and pat Cindi on the back until she feel asleep.  Sometimes that was a long time.  LOL

I created this layout in honor of my sis.  The photo is my sister when she was less than a year old. 

Stuff in the Layout
  • Most of the product is older but works marvelously.  
  • Ghost Flowers by Heidi Swapp and Rain Dots by Cloud Nine with Fiskars.  I added the Rain Dots to the flowers to define the flower itself and with the upper flower it gave it dimension.
  • Rub-ons are from Foof-a-La.
  • The photo corners are from Heidi Swapp.
  • Clips and Brads from Making Memories.
  • Stamp of the little girl is from Stamp Camp.
  • Small frame: I do not know.  
  • The newest products on the page are the Tiny Attacher I used on the Ribbon and photo corners; and Ranger's reinkers for the background, the American Craft's Thickers. 
  • Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the edges.
  • I was inspired by a layout design in the book Tantalizing Textures.
