Happy New Baby to You!

My cousin just had a healthy baby boy – Samuel.  Congratulations, Kerri and Justin!  At times like this, I wish the whole family lived all in the same city.  It’d make visits so much easier!  I don’t see myself going to Edmonton anytime soon, but you never know.  Maybe I’ll get sick of the mild temperatures and the rain here, and crave some freezing cold dry weather?  Anyways, isn’t this the cutest little teddy bear?  I thought it’d be neat to have him hanging, like from a mobile.. babies like mobiles.  I’ll have to make one when we have a baby.. err, hopefully I’ll make it before the baby comes.  No no, not pregnant yet!

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.
