Welcoming Home Kit!

Good evening! Andy and I went up to Costco this evening to pick up some pictures I recently ordered. When I got to the photo desk, and told the man my name, he goes "What was that...oh yeah I remember". I ordered so many photos that I am famous at Costco! LOL! There were 5 boxes of photos! Boxes, not those little envelopes! I justify this because 2 boxes were Alaska photos for Gram, and the other 3 boxes were Christmas for myself, my Mom, and a few for Joan too. So that doesn't make it sound as bad, right?!

This photo was one that was in the 3 boxes, of Grace on Christmas when she got her American Girl Kit doll. See that huge smile on her face? She wore that smile for an entire week will she visited us! I finally got my idea down on paper from the sketch I saw on Stuck sketches this evening, and this is what I came up with! All supplies are from the Noel Mignon January "Paper Doll" kit. I found this great tutorial online last night about ribbon and paper pleating, and I recreated this on the strip below my photo. I ran out of paper half way through, so I came up with the creative solution of covering the seam with a flower!

Here is a close up of the paper pleating:
Thanks for stopping by tonight!

How absolutely adorable Heather. I love your paper choices and especially the beautiful pleating - good job. You are two good looking cousins!
