Oh Baby!!

Hi friends!  I hope you are having a great day!  I started physical therapy last week for a torn rotator cuff so I will be running a little more!  I suppose the timing is good - if there ever is a good time to have anything wrong.  The kids are headed back to school so I won't be regretting that I'm not with them.  I also grabbed the earliest appointments of the day so I can get a jump start on my day!   I'm hoping to start walking my dog a bit more too - get a new start taking care of me and all that!

Today begins the new fortnight challenge at The Ribbon Reel Challenge.  More beautiful inspiration this time from Sarah.  This one is called "Oh Baby"!  You are asked to make a card for baby using the colors/patterns on the inspiration photo, include ribbon and twine.  Now this is some cool kid's room folks - check out the olive, navy and turquoise - chevrons, dots, and oh my... zebra print!!  Oh yes, thee is a big initial in there too... lots of ways you can go with this.  I love a photo with lots of inspiration.  I focused on the color scheme - those chevrons (in my paper), and dots (on my ribbon).  I have to say I really like the drama of the brights vs pastels for baby - it's so unexpected and interesting!   

Check out what the rest of the design team made for this challenge - just click on their names!

Thanks for stopping by - don't forget you have two weeks to play!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

What a fun and cute card. You are so amazing that you can create cards in every style. I love the colors and chevrons, and those adorable baby shoes. I wish I had thought of this room when I had my babies--way more fun than what I chose.
