It's a boy!

No, it's not what you think! This is a photo of Joel when he was brand-new.

I did my first challenge for show us your stuff. The challenge was to include the following:

*Stitching (hand, machine or faux): I added a few gold cross stitches here and there
*Misting: those blue blobs on the cardstock (my all-time favourite glimmer mist colour is running out, but even though I can no longer mist with it I will blob till the bitter end!)
*buttons: those cuuuuute Lil Red Rocket buttons

*4 or more patterned paper: I used Crate paper, love the quirkiness of it

*Something handmade: I made a funky heart with texture paste

Simply put some in a zip-lock bag, snip of a tiny corner and squeeze unto some baking paper. It curls by itself. How cool is that! It does take a few hours to dry properly though. 

I also made a buckle, it's got Joel's full name in stickers with Dimensional Magic on top:

Check out this pin from my2angels. I totally love it.

I've never really journalled about the birth as it was quite traumatic for mum and bub but after 11 years I finally wrote it down.

Took me long enough! LOL
