SOS 173 - Hello Sweetie!

The 3rd Saturday in October is Sweetest Day in the US. That's the theme for this week's SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge.

The SOS crew would like you to a "sweet" theme...and be sure to tell us how you interpreted the challenge (something sweet, something for your sweetie etc.)

Just about the sweetest thing in my life is this adorable little missy...she just turned one on September 30. Miss Charlie London is the daughter of my cousin (more like little sister) Alley.

Can you believe looking at that face that Charlie was a preemie and weighed less than 5 lbs when she was born? I remember going to see her in the ICU and she was so very tiny, we weren't allowed to take her out of the incubator. We were kinda worried about her at the beginning, but only because we didn't know then what a trooper she is!

Here's the card I made for her 1st birthday...my sweet little monkey princess.

Shite I used to make this card:

  • Purple cardstock (Recollections)
  • Ella Giraffes design paper (Animal Crackers, Making Memories)
  • Baby Girl Miniatures (Bella Blvd)
  • Baby Girl Alpha + Bits (Bella Blvd)
  • Pink & white twine (The Twinery)
  • Pink sequins

Be sure to visit the SOS BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there show my teammies some crafty lovin'!!
