Babies and Bellas......

I have baby fever! Not the kind that you are thinking of, but many of my friends are expecting right now and I am having so much fun making gifts for them.

Today was Alicia's shower and I made her this little gift set. It includes a keepsake box, a photo clip, and a stack of Thank You cards. Hi Alicia!!! She told me she reads my blog regularly! YEAH - someone is reading this! Alicia said she made some of the boxes from this post! More YEAH!!!! Someone was inspired! How exciting!

I love making these tins and I think this one is one of my favorites! I hope she likes it.

And now for the Bellas! I LOVE these stamps! I have been coveting them for a very long time and finally broke down and ordered some. I didn't realize they would take so long to get here (they are from a Canadian company), but they were worth the wait. I want to use the Pregabella so bad for Alicia's shower card and she arrived just yesterday! Right on time. Here's the card I made her:

I got 3 Bella stamps in all - Pregabella, Groovybrideabella, and Cosmobella. You can see all the Bellas here. I think I need them all! I first saw them on Amy Rysavy's blog - Prairie Paper & Ink. She is another one of my favorites. She has lots of Bella stamps and lots of great ideas. She also has really good tutorials and advice.

I have a lot of work to do tonight, so no time to post all the supplies. If you want to know where I got something, how I did something, or what I used for something - leave me a comment.

I can't close without posting a very cute picture, OK pictures, of Bean. We had such a beautiful weekend here, I did a Fall photoshoot with her yesterday. We got some good pictures!
She looked so cute! She was having a great time walking around the yard and I was having a crazy time trying to get some good pictures! These were the 3 keepers out of probably 100 pictures - Oh, so worth it though!! You may be seeing the top one on our Christmas cards!

Have a good week, gotta run....
