You mean everything to us . . .

A friend of mine is going to be a grandma, (again-but this is her daughter's first child), and she wanted to find something to hang in the baby's room that had the following saying:  "First we had each other.  Then we had you.  Now we have everything!"  Isn't that sweet?

So, my friend will be going to help her daughter and family move next week!  She thought, "I can make something a lot quicker than I can find something."  So off we went to our local Hobby Lobby for a 12x12 frame, paper, and embellies, and I offered to do it for her.

But where do I start?  I knew the new momma was decorating baby's room with gray bears, so I immediately knew I wanted to use "My Favorite Teddy Bear" from Stampin' Up!  (At least, I think that's the name of the set--I just noticed some little hands must have taken the label from my set!)  And then, I needed a little inspiration!  Frosted Design's Sketch Challenge!  You can find it here.

Here's the page out of the frame.  When baby's momma wants to re-do his room, she can take it out of the frame, and put it in a scrapbook.  Then she can use the frame again!

The page in the frame.  It's from Hobby Lobby; made by The Paper Studio.

I love this stamp!  It's so classic.  And I tried to keep the project toned down for baby boy.  Not much bling--just a few pearls from Melissa Frances.  And the shapes were cut with Cricut's "Elegant Edges" cartridge.

I'm entering this page in the following sketch challenge:  Frosted Designs Sketch #47.

Hope you enjoyed my project;  I had fun with it!  And, now I'm inspired to do something like this for my kid's rooms . . .
