Prettie Wednesday

Does anyone remember having the EggBaby project in school? Well, this weeks challenge from Jana was to make a baby card using Paper Pretties stamps. I sat at my table (half packed away in boxes) and could not for the life of me think of anything "baby". And then it hit me....Egg Babies!!! So I broke out my favorite baby boy DCWV paper (Charlie and I just can't get enough of it) and went to work. I love using apricot, turquoise and celery together, it's a great color combo! I opted to paper piece the egg using the coordinating polka dot paper in the stack. I love the glittery bits, they just make it pop. I didn't want to go too crazy so I added a small PTI sentiment at the bottom.

The boxes are slowly stacking up around us and I think it's enough to drive a person to insanity (I was 75% there already with all this house buying stuff). I've packed about 1/2 of my stamp room and it's torture. I only packed what I knew I hadn't touched in at least a year *cringe* that way I was sure not to need it for any upcoming classes or projects. Well next week I have to have it ALL packed and I think I might cry. I hardly get any free time to stamp as it is right now but once I tape up the last box I won't even be able to day dream about stamping. *sigh*

Ok, enough of my pity party, I just need to focus on flooring, painting, cleaning and then unpacking my NEW stamp room!! YIPPEEE!!!! Ok, I feel better. ;)

this is so cute! I totally had an egg baby in high school & was chatting about it with Jessie a few weeks ago. My egg baby was a boy (his name was Jared) and his Godmother (my BFF Yvette) babysat him one night (she worked at a craft store) and he came back in an adorable little basinette with a blanket, pillow, diaper & lace around the handle! I miss him.
