BIG, HUGE, AWESOME Announcement !

Jim and I are proud to announce we are going to be Gram-ma and Papa once again!  I feel like the blessings are raining down on our family.  My next to the youngest son and his wife, Adam and Vanessa, are expecting their first child.  We won't know for another month the gender of the baby, but I call the baby "Peanut!"  Peanut will his/her appearance toward the end of August.  Little Honey and Peanut will be close in age and  best of cousins.

I did a layout to mark this occasion for Adam and Vanessa.  This is a sketch for this month from Helmar.  The sketch is by Lydell Quin.


  • The foundation paper is specialty paper by Prima --older stash. 
  • Hearts are from Jenni Bowlin's Core'dinations, punch with Fiskars Amour Squeeze Punch, sanded and added a bit of Rangers Dabber Paint Snow Cap.  
  • Crocheted flowers by Making Memories--older stash.
  • Large flowers, leaves, and bling are from Prima
  • "3" is from Tim Holtz's Grungeboard and stained with Fire Brick Distress Stain. 
  • People are from Maya Road inked with Distress Ink Black Soot.
  • Background journaling card is from Jenni Bowlin.  In keeping with the sewing on the background paper I stitched through each line on the journaling card and added Distress Ink Vintage Photo and Fire Brick.  
  • The hearts were created in PSE and hand cut.  

Thank You
Thank you for all the kind and encouraging comments about the Alphabet project.  I received a text from my daughter last night with a photo of the Alpha Wall.  It's my understanding that Little Honey gave it an approval "Oooo."
