It's not just for babies!

I absolutely love the Little Additions stamp set in the new mini catalogue. You get 21 stamps in the set which I think is an absolute steal. Plus, it's not just for babies!! My old teamie Liza has set a challenge to use 'lots of layers' over at Cupcake this week. Now - I'm usually the first one to shudder at the thought of lots of layers - but I came up with somethin I like:

I've made this new home card. My base is Shimmery White card which I've chopped off part way down and added a layer of window sheet behind. Then another piece of shimmery white card stuck across the bottom with a layered strip of Springtime Vintage DSP over the top. Do you like the way I've made my 'wallpaper' by using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder? Made myself chortle that did!

To make my scene I stamped the furniture and picture using Baja Breeze, Early Espresso and Pear Pizzaz, layering on my card with dimensionals and then another layer of DSP on one of the pictures too! For a little finishing touch I added a self adhesive pearl to the drawer and a little gold elastic thread and another pearl to hang my pictures.

Now it's been a while since I've shared what stunt baby has been up to recently so I thought it was about time I showed you his latest antics. Here he is trying to get into Daddy's van:

Now he may look all out of propertion but that's because he has his big brother's shorts on!! Next stunt baby decided to 'sort out' the 'stuff' in the garage:
But with the attention span of a gnat and having successfully pulled out all Daddy's nice tidy cables, it was time to escape:

Tomorrow should be fun, Fluff and Sweet Cheeks are coming round to play!
