I've Been Holding Out On You

Yup, it's true - I've had something to share for the past two days but had to keep it from you until it was delivered to my downline, Heather. You see, Heather and her DH had their first child earlier this month - a darling little girl named Brooklyn. I wanted to do something for Heather to celebrate Brooklyn's arrival and knew that they actually were pretty well off after several baby showers. So, I decided to make Brooklyn a garland! Heather had used Bella Rose on her shower invites, so I wanted to keep to the same theme and make Brooklyn a garland using it, too. Here's how it came out. I had some Tomato Spice acrylic paint on hand that I thought matched the Riding Hood Red paper perfectly for the letters (I miss upper & lower Simon chipboard - thankfully I ordered myself a stash of it!). I couldn't post pictures until Heather received it, and she called a little while ago to let me know it had arrived - so now I can share it with you, too! For more detail, simply click on the image and it will open in another window for a larger view. Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of your week!
