It's a Surprise Baby Hop for Ginger!!


It's an online Baby Shower Blog Hop!! One of our dear Paper Makeup Stamps Makeup Artists Ginger Schwerin is adopting a baby boy and as she's busy getting ready for his arrival (go check out her nursery!!), we decided to honor her with a Surprise Shower from her fellow Makeup Artists! If you've been hopping along, you should have arrived here from Maria's blog...if you just got here and would like to experience this Online Baby Shower for yourself, then feel free to go back to the beginning at the Paper Makeup Stamps Blog...

So, Ginger were you suprised??? I remember how touched I was when everyone threw ME one for my baby, so I'm excited to be able to participate in this one for you, love!

 Here is the creation I have to share for you, Ginny...

I made a little Treat Box with a present for the baby. You can find the tutorial HERE on Splitcoast. I featured one my favorite childhood sentiments by Paper Makeup Stamps for the box. I'm thinking about taking off those they are bothering me...LOL!

The card uses this week's Makeup 4 the Weekend Sketch Challenge (see it below) as the layout. I used the same paper as I did for the box and featured the cute little elephant for the focal point. The sentiment can be found HERE on the PMS store. This layout was hard for me to use, but I pushed through it! LOL!

I wish you the happiest of new adventures in mommy world. It's going to have it's ups and downs, but I promise that you will NEVER regret the ride!

I hope you had a wonderful online baby shower...I'm the last stop, so let me leave you with this:

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
