Better Late Than Never

Welcome one and all to my very first post!! Those of you who know me, know that this has been a long time in the making and construction. Thanks to all of my wonderful Blog friends who have encouraged, prompted (and some NOT so subtley)and prodded me to get my craft out there for the world to see. I hope you perhaps get inspired to try something different....or tackle a new challenge. The crafting community is such a vast yet warm and welcoming one, you can do no wrong by getting involved in it.

My first project I wish to share with you is one that has been in my 'gunna' file for some time. The wonderful Sue Denning had this on her blog some time ago. It's a baby tote that holds Bonds suits (or similar), singlets, socks, and in the middle, powder, lotions and potions. My daughter's Kindy teacher recently had a baby and I thought I had better get the idea out. I was so v v happy with the result. We did not know the sex of the baby, hence the gender neutral vibe.

I teamed it with a matching card, using the "Wild About You" set from Stampin Up as well as an oragami box filled with Maltesers for the Mum. The link for the box can be found here.

Thanks for taking the journey of what i hope will be many posts.

Catch you all soon.

Lynda xx

Your Baby Carry-All/Tote looks lovely. I am so glad that the new "Mummy" loved it. That patchwork style worked well and what a clever little idea for the nappy pins!

So glad you are now up and blogging and I look forward to joining you on your papercrafting journey.
