Happy Birthday!

Here is a fun birthday card that I made a couple of months back.

The patterned paper is from BoBunny's 6 x 6 Garden Girl Paper Pack and the cardstock is Bazzill.

I tied the two orange water balloons with Baker's Twine from my stash and the rhinestones are from Kaiser Craft's line. The flower border was punched out with one of EK Success' large border punches.

The sentiment stamp on the front of the card is from Penny Black and the inside sentiment stamp is from Stampendous.

TJ's Nursery & Announcement

Good day!

I am sorry that I haven't been posting for awhile. I was having a problem with my blog and I wasn't able to upload any of my photos. Three weeks ago today, I had finally booked an appointment with my "Nerds on Site" guy to come and fix my computer, but I went into labour that day.

So, we finally got the problem with my blog fixed today and now I am able to blog again. I am not too far behind with my posts because I wasn't able to scrapbook for most of my pregnancy due to the pain that I was in.

The above photos are of my son's nursery.

TJ (Trevor John) Digby was born on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at 11:53 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds 7.5 ounces and was 21.25 inches long.

He is named after his dad, Trevor and the name John is after my dad & my grandfather's first names and my brother & my cousin's middle names. These are all the important men in my life. Also, his initials are TJD. My maiden name initials were DJT (Donna Jean Thomson).

The first photo of the nursery is of the vinyl, chocolate brown tree & quote that is on the wall above TJ's crib. The tree is from Stampin' Up and it is the largest one that you can get. For the quote, I used the font from my "Child's First Year" Cricut Cartridge, Cricut brown vinyl and my husband's laser level.

As for a photo of my son being posted on my blog, I just don't feel comfortable doing it. If you go to my store's blog, you will see our new family photo with TJ in it. When it comes to the world wide web, I limit my children's photos to the minimum. That is why my layouts are always posted with just the mats or the photos covered up.

When you come by the store, you will see him in person or you will see his photos on my layouts on display in the store once I get back into my scrapbooking.

Thank you to everyone who has sent us email best wishes or who have dropped off gifts for TJ. Your love & generousity is greatly appreciated. We are very fortunate to have so many people who care about us and we truly appreciate it.
