Sweet Baby Love...

Monday, March 18, 2013

I can't believe that it's been twelve months since this little man entered out world and yet it seems only yesterday that I was pacing the floorboards in desperation. Teddy suffered from colic for the first three months of his life and it was a tough time seeing this poor little man in such pain and there was nothing we could do. So these photos were a rarity because he was blissfully asleep, but what you don't see or hear is the vacuum cleaner parked right beside his bed. It only worked for a little while but it gave him a beautiful deep sleep and gave me enough time to have a shower and possibly something to eat.

I created this layout using the  Lovebirds collection from Doodlebug as the colours were gentle, the aqua picked up the colour in his dummy and the red tied everything together.

Just love the new Doodlebug Washi Tape and even more in love with all the different colours and patterns.

And how sweet are the new heart shaped pearls?
