Hello there,
How is your day going? I am just popping in a layout that I have created for this months challenge over at
THE KAISERCRAFTBLOG which is a fabulous sketch...  and you know I love sketches!! The sketch looks like this..
Well I just had to use two very special photos of my first moments with my brand new Grand Daughter.. She was still in the wrap from her birth and I was able to hold her and put her in her bonds suit  and nappy... what a very special privilege for me.. I am so glad I got my hubby to take these photos...

some closer views..

I have used the Fairy Garden papers, and you know me... lots of fussy cutting of the pretty flowers..

Some stencilling on the back ground with the Kaisercraft stencil Cherry Blossom.

And some gauze under the fussy cutting to add some softness..

Remember this moment...

oh such a beautiful moment looking at my Darling Grand Daughter, so fresh and new and tiny!!

Thanks Kaisercraft for a wonderful sketch that I used to scrap these precious photos!!

Thanks too for coming on by,  and thank you for the lovely comments you leave me to read..  My part of the world is quickly moving into winter with cold nights and mornings!! brrr.. I am finding it harder to get out of bed in the mornings!!  Have a great day!!
