Fabulous News

You have probably heard me mention my cousin before and yesterday I received the call I have been waiting for she is expecting her first baby. I was so pleased for them both, she will make a fantastic mum and that is one lucky baby. She sent me a picture of the scan and I can't wait to meet this new little person and give them lots of cuddles. I will also be the one who buys all the noisy toys and gives them the hyper sugary stuff, well you have to keep a tradition going lol.

I remember reading her a book at bedtime called "Will Cwac Cwac" and I used to do all the different voices and accents and she used to love it, in fact she still talks about it to me, I would love to find a copy of this book for the new baby but it seems to be out of print, such a shame too as it was a lovely book.

I used snippets from the Keita kit from Sassy Designs and have made three cards all from the same papers so far, can't you tell I like them lol. Even the image and sentiment were stamped on snippets lol.

Papers: "Keita" Sassy Designs Inc

It sounds like Di is going to put us all to work for awhile! I'm pretty good with a hammer and saw....I hope we all have pink hard hats! Good luck with the blogaversary drawing...
