Baby Buntings...

One of my favorite lullabyes to sing to the kiddos when they were babies was "Bye, Baby Bunting".  They still like to hear it every now and again!  Grandma came for a visit and we played "baby" and wrapped them up in "buntings".  Even though I just recently had a few years of practice doing "buntings", my mother is STILL better at it than I am!  :)

I haven't been using very many single photos on my layouts lately, so when I saw this sketch at Scrapfriends, I decided to give it a go with this photo.

I added a white wash and some "clay" mist splatters on the background, and then added a few splatters of some Heidi Swapp color shine in Coral, too.  I'm trying to use up my embellishments with this Crate Paper Close Knit line because I always run out of papers before embellies!  There are the stitched pieces, buttons, chipboard, and more!

I created a small banner with the chipboard pieces and just added some twine to the top.

I loved the cluster of frames in the sketch, so I used some chipboard ones to frame some fun brads from this collection, too.

Can't believe that it is almost the end of the month already!  But that just means it's closer to summer!  But I do like being "snowed" in so that I can spend more time scrapping!

Stay scrappy (and warm!) my friends!
