Vintage Pram Baby

I've returned to the blog! Yeah! Kids are all back to school, my youngest daughter's birthday (10) has passed (until her party which is a few weeks away anyhow) and tickets have been purchased and plans set in motion for our next family trip in December. Where? Well I thought you'd never ask! To Hawaii! That's right me and 4 lucky guests are in for 8 days and 7 nights of fun and relaxation on the North Shore of Oahu at famous Sunset beach at an oceanfront guesthouse ! There still may be mouths to feed and laundry to do but hey who minds when the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean waves will be crashing out our back door! back to reality...I'm thinking I really ought to catch up on my Scrapbooking since I have yet to scrap my photos from my 2008 trip to Hawaii! Here is one of my most favorite pictures from our trip!

Today's post was primarily inspired by my desire to try out my new Tim Holtz Distress marker kit which I absolutely love! I colored a La Blanche stamp of a pretty baby ______ you fill in the blank. It's either a pretty boy or a girl depending on the way your mind sees it!  This card ended up with a lot of details, you could say I had a tough time editing myself!
The newsprint is a bit more tougher to see, it's on the aqua GCD paper behind the image.

Seemed like the perfect sentiment don't you agree?

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

Shopping our Stash - Challenge 64 - Technique Time, Try something new - Blending with Distress Markers and a new Bow Making Technique I just learned...see how Perffy it is?
