Hello All!
I have done another 8 x 8 LO for my friend's new baby boy. His name is -yeah-you guessed it. Carter. I used these adorable papers by Imaginisce that I have had since I found out I was pregnant with a boy, so 3 1/2 years. But they are so cute I couldn't resist using them in Carter's album as well.
Supply List:
Patterned Paper- Imaginisce
CS- CTMH (white) and Unknown from my stash
Stamp Sets- CTMH ( Believe Upper Case, and Simple Stitches)
Ink-CTMH (Colonial White pigment ink, and Sweet Leaf)
Markers: CTMH My Legacy Writers
I used the cricut to cut these 1 1/4" circles

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamps Challenge- We are all going DOTTY!
Paper Play Challenges- Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss- Baby baby!
          Practical Scrappers- Use your # 1 Favorite Product- Close To My Heart inks are my absolute favorite product. In particular the Colonial White ( used above) and the White Daisy Pigment Ink stamp pads. They really make a stamped image stand out on a dark background.

Well that's all for now, back to finish some more, or go to bed. Not sure which will win out.
Nighty night, sleep tight. Don't let the bed bugs bite!
