Mother Goose Gift....

I was invited to a close friends baby shower yesterday and wanted to take a gift that would be different to anything else her little Pip (her term of endearment for the ever increasing  bump she is carrying). We don't know if Pip is to be a boy or girl so I decided that something for the nursery was the answer. Now I do know that these photos are really rubbish and I do need to up my game on the photography front, but as you already know I struggle with the computer so the photography doesn't stand much of a chance at the moment.

 I started with three sheets of the Graphic 45 Mother Goose papers and kept one sheet whole for the base layer.
 I then started on the 2nd sheet by cutting away the background and the outer edge from the paper. From the paper that I cut away I cut out the house, the skipping girl and the girl and sheep (yes I know it's little Bo Peep).
Then just keep cutting out and layering up until your happy with the finished picture. I even layered up the two little flowers. I do like a bit of fussy cutting.

Now a bit of info for you......
My first parcel arrived from Jones Craft today while I was out so can you imagine my happy bunny face when I opened the front door to be greeted by a pack of Kaisercraft goodies. Oooooh where to begin!!

Now my second bit of an update....
You may have heard me mention my lack of computer skills (surely you must have noticed) so I have started a computer course. It began last Monday and by ten o'clock on Tuesday I was ready to throw in the towel and the computer through the window. Then I was given a mock test to do on Thursday. After a really ropey start I actually got 91% can you beleive that!! I promise it's true. So on Monday I have mock test number two and then some time this week I will have to sit the really one - Scared who me????? absolutely terrified. But as my rock of a sister tells me, what's the worst that can happen! 
I'll let you know about that next week EEEEEKKKK!!


  1. Good luck with the computer exam. I do so love your creation it is fabulous.

  2. Wow, so much to look at in this fab card! xx

  3. The scene you have created is fabulous - I am sure this will have pride of place in the Nursery!!
    If it's any consolation, we come on here for inspiration, not to look at peoples photography skills - and your cards are certainly inspirational. Good luck with the computing.

  4. You are right Pauline - the photos don't do it justice! Claire was delighted with it and I'm sure it will take pride of place in the Nursery!

  5. Wow, this s great! Love the style, such pretty papers and great colors. Very imaginative and fun to look at. :)

    Hugs, Anne.
