Cute Little Baby Carriage

Morning Peeps,

Yes it's my busy week and I'm back again already.  We are still taking advantage of the glorious English weather and we went for a walk on Sunday by the canal for 2 and a half miles.  Today we went to Ashridge and did a 4 and a half mile walk.  I'm hoping that tomorrow won't be a 6 and a half mile one, lol.  My legs and bottom ache, and believe me OH does not know as many shortcuts as he thinks he does.  Still I need the exercise and it was so nice to see so many people out and about.

Today's challenge at Bearly Mine Designs is "Babies" and I decided to make a little baby carriage.

I have used the paper from Extreme Designer Vol III as I liked the tiny print.  I have used nesties to create the wheels and the cogs are laserchip Cogs from Make It Crafty and now also available at Quixotic Paperie.

The image is by Magnolia and I have again attempted distress inks.  A bit more practice still needed I know. I have added pink netting inside the pram to raise up the sleeping bambino.


Papers by Bearly Mine Extreme Designer Vol III CD
Bazill Cardstock
Medium Distress Inks
Cogs painted with pink acrylic paint available from Make It Crafty and Quixotic Paperie

Unknown said...

wow, this is truly amazing!!...it's crazy cute...and the little baby inside made me smile. i love it!...

saw your comment on SS set #7. 'Intrigued' is a good word for the set:)...They are definitely the most different of all the ones out so far....but hopefully give people some new themes to play around with. one reminds me of princess leah...maybe a star wars boy card:P

okay, enough yapping:)...thanks for always sharing such beautiful projects...i think you could start your own craft magazine. just fill it with the things you make- cuz every one is really amazing.
