Cloud 9 Bebe

Hi all, I'm back again with another adorable Sugar Nellie baby  - this one's called Bebe and you can find this little beauty here.  I honestly cannot get over how true to life these stamps are - amazing!

I coloured this little precious one with my Copics -
Skin:  E00, E11, E21, R11     Hat:  YG00, YG03, YG23     Blanket:  B93, B95, B97

       I bought the backing papers, called Cloud 9 baby boy, from QVC many moons ago - can't remember quite how long but it's approx 4 to 5ish years!! They came in a set of 12" x 12" double sided papers with a huge amount of gorgeous embellishments to co-ordinate - it was definitely one of those sets you just want to look at and stroke and woe betide anyone who dared to want to actually USE them ;)

I made the name banner by painstakingly cutting out each flag, then painstakingly cutting out a slightly smaller flag,  painstakingly distressing the edges of each little flag and adding letters from the paper set.  I'm seriously thinking of getting one of those fishtail flag dies - might come in handy ;)  I used my crop-a-dile to punch the holes through and then threaded the twine.  At either end I added a couple of cute little nappy pins, which have also been in my stash for years!

  The 'baby boy', 'heart' rub-ons and 'huggable' chipboard tile were also elements from this beautiful set.   I added some bling and butterflies and voila!! All done :)  Actually, it wasn't as easy as that - in fact, it took me flipping ages lol .... but I do enjoy a challenge!

I popped a personalised computer sentiment on the front and used more of the co-ordinating papers for the inside.

I would like to enter Cloud 9 Bebe into the following:
