!!!!!!!!!!..........WE ARE WAITING ............!!!!!!!!!!
Today is the day Amy's baby is due but I think someone must have forgotten to tell it we are all waiting. Maybe it's a girl - and still getting ready OR a boy thats a bit lazy and dawdling along. I am off to Amy's for lunch today so maybe I better take her for a bumpy drive to get it moving along.
I made this cute little .... I don't know what you'd call it mixed media collage maybe?? Any way I was having a bit of a practice at making something like this for when Amy's baby comes along. The background is painted pale pink with a hint of pale green added. I love the vintage sequinned trim I put on the top. I think it is cute but now I have to work out where to hang it.

Robin at Bittersweet Punkin has given me the You Make Me Smile Award. Thanks Robin.
