All About Jonah

Hi Friends!
I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful Christmas celebration with your family and friends.  We are enjoying some sweet time with our son from Colorado, a little extra time with our grandson as my daughter and son-in-law celebrate her birthday going to an afternoon movie.  Heck!  I even had a massage this morning after my workout at the gym.  Life is good!
I thought I would take advantage of this break in the action to share with you a project that I did back in November for a precious friend whose first grandchild is soon to be born.


Papertrey Ink products:  Sweet Baby Die, Block Alphabet dies, Hanging Out stamp set, Vintage Cream card stock
Patterned paper:  Lil' Man, by Cosmo Cricket
Ink:  Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, Antique Linen Distress Ink



Papertrey Ink Products:  White card stock, twine, Tag Sale #1 die, Fresh Alphabet stamp set, "To" and "From" (I don't remember which set)
Ink:  Memento Bamboo Leaves
Vine and Monkey from Hero Arts CL155
Copic Markers

I'm sorry that I did not get a picture of the packaging. I used a small kraft bag to hold the gift tags with the giraffe die cut used as a tag.  It was really cute!  These monkey tags are a gift idea from my daughter.  When her son was born, she received a set of adorable little tags with his name on them and it was one of her favorite gifts.  She said, "there is just something special about seeing your child's name in print!".  So, I often make these gift tags for the little one to use for future birthday party gift giving.  The surprise for me was that upon arriving at the shower, I learned that the nursery colors are green and brown with a monkey theme!  How cool is that?

I would appreciate any comments you might have!

Thanks for stopping by!
