I had the idea for this page before I decided to enter a contest... The 'ABC' blocks used as decorative capitals for ' A friend, Bassinet buddy, & Cousin--I had to make myself using thin balsa wood and MM Chunky creative alpha makers letters in order to get what I wanted. I also used smaller MM Chunky for the rest of the words, and cut out of the balsa backing as well. I used MM pink and denim gingham papers, and MM ice blue solid and fuchsia simple sponge watercolor collection papers. The ginghams I also cut and used a corner punch on to make a bit of a scalloped edge. I embellished with MM rectangle vellum tags, MM like it is 'family' die cut stickers, MM ribbon label, & MM signage. The rest is a few Jolee flowers, and believe it or not, some cheesecloth for the fiber/ribbon along the bottom. And the pictures of course! Of my beautiful boy AJ and his 2 mths younger cousin Zoey--hanging out together in a bassinet. This was the second time my sister and I were pregnant together--our first set of cousins are inseperable--and it looks like the second set will be too!
