NOW, OUR WONDERFUL SPONSORS
This is what I have on my blog to give away!
What do I need to do, you ask?
The way you can hop is by thinking of numbers! Go to each Design Team's blog, read the clues and THINK OF NUMBERS while you do this! Remember - our theme is BABIES, so what do Babies have related to NUMBERS?
There may be a small amount of poetry in there........but I am sure you will be able to work that all out! You collect a word or maybe a whole phrase from each blog along the hop and you need to make sure that
- You leave a comment on that blog to be eligible for the blog prize
- You DON'T mention the word/phrase in your comment!
Once you have completed your hop send an email off with the assembled clues from the POEM
Ten Little (Whoops, nearly...) about BABIES: remember, this is all related to NUMBERS!

Happy Hopping Peeps and we look forward to seeing your lovely creations
I was lucky enough to get an image from Meljen's to use in making my card, and as well Flourish with a Bling sent me some of their product to use also - so there are two lots of Sponsors stuff in my card.
This babies bottle is the image I used - I used Copics to colour it
My card features a sentiment from the Sweet Innocence range at MFT, and the rest of the card uses background papers from a paper stack called Sweet Wishes supplied by the Australian magazine - Papercraft Essentials. The bling has been added as I wanted to make the point that babies just grow from seeds, like all other things on earth. The banner is from Joanne Sheen and there is a bit of bling. The hearts that were die cut from the banner were reused also. The mount is SU Green Gumball card.
This is a LOTV sentiment which I used inside the card.
I am a great Aunt and yes, I am a Great Aunt as well! I am also a Grandmother of four very beautiful kids - and I think I am a pretty good Nin (their name for me) at times too! Our eldest Granddaughter is Charlotte and while she is now over 21, the photo below was taken when she was about 9 months old. She is such a serious little thing, isn't she! From the look of the rosy cheeks and the bib she was probably teething as well!
I assure you she did smile - just that you had to be very quick to get that photo! This is one of the few photo's I could scan in that had her in enough clothes too! Quite a few of her smiling ...... in the bath! While those photo's could prove she had all the right number of bits (a baby by numbers lol) this one of her clothed only really proves she had one cute button nose! She still has only one cute button nose but it and she are a bit bigger now! Her hair looks quite red in this photo but she was firstly bald, then blond and then a lovely brunette as she was growing up - now she is back to being a bit more blond but I think it comes from a bottle - and not a baby one either!
See? The chin shape hasn't changed though!
I will enter the card in the following challenges:
