How to make a baby grow.......(feed it!!)

Augusts new Bubbly Funk kit has arrived and it is called His & Hers so you can guess the colour combos huh?

I couldn't resist using some of the girly colours first!! And I just had to get this idea out of my system....having admired a real altered onesie (I think it was on Ewonnes blog) I finally had a go at making my own out of corrugated cardboard.

I found this ready printed photo of Georgia and a buddy in a box and used it because of the printer malfunction problem...(usual story about printers)...I wish I had known about scrapping back then because my photos would have been better, saying that I thought having Ben would give me the opportunity to catch up but time is flying and I still don't have any awesome photos of him...I think I need a trip to a cheap studio not the Venture experience again...I wish but not enough pennies in the pot!!

The kit is full of little embellishments....I especially love the green ticket and the dragonfly brad. See the clear alphabet stickers from Chatterbox...I gessoed the edges to make them stand out and overlaid them onto the photos....that was fun!!

I am assured that this months kit is a credit crunch busting price and I know for a fact that it is jam packed with papers, chipboard alphas, flowers and a whole stash of brads and ephemera perfect for doubling your supplies in one quick go!!

If you would like to make a baby grow or adapt the idea onto a layout, then as usual every Friday full instructions are posted on the Bubbly Scrumptious e-mag blog HERE.
ps: Denise at Tillys has the most beautiful coat hangers made by Melissa Frances in her sale.....perfect as a starting point for any baby project!!
Love and tiny toes
