I made this book for a friend's baby shower. Inside is Pinky McKay's 100 ways to calm the crying baby. I used Outline Alphabet and designer series paper to make the title and Circle Circus to decorate the inside. My friend was having her shower in Sydney but lives in Queensland and said not to bring presents, so this was a good way to still give her a present. Plus, she had something to read on the plane!

In it there is a lovely soap
That you will really like I hope
I decorated it with jewels and lace
And tied it in a special place
So keep it somewhere it can stay
To remind you of this Mothers' day!"
And a teapot with a tea bag which says;
I'll do my best in every way
But when you get upset with me,
Relax and have a cup of tea."
The teapot was painted in lovely pastels and included a Lipton tea bag. Plus I got a double DVD of Chicago and Shall We Dance? I had a lovely day spent with my two girls and hubby.

For over two years, they have done extensive research including investigating colour trends in the fashion, home décor, and crafting industries, and have conducted focus groups involving demonstrators, customers, and Stampin' Up! experts to bring us a fresh, on-trend colour palette to work with!
Each year we will have five new In Colors, and they will remain for two years. This means that the 2010-2011 In Colors will be introduced this year, but will not be retired until the 2012-2013 colours are introduced. This year there will be only be five In Colors, but after that, we will always have ten (the previous year's plus the new).
Any retiring colour product that runs out of stock from now will not be replenished, so if you have some favourite colours that are going (I know I do!) now is the time to get them before they disappear.

Mum was adamant that I was pregnant with a boy and on Tuesday 4th May at 2:51am, this gorgeous little bundle arrived. . .
. . . Abigail Suzanne Coppack, a girl. I have to say that I'm smitten with her and I'm not the only one. Although her big sister really wanted a baby brother, she now loves her baby sister very much.
Here are the three dearest people in my life, my husband Kyle, Makayla and little Abigail.
I made Makayla a special big sister dolly (and blew up my sewing machine in the process!) Here's some pictures of the doll.
I had never done anything like this before, and I'm rather proud of how it turned out. And Makayla liked it too!
And one last picture of "Little One" (this is Makayla's nickname for Abigail).
The last few months have been quite full on to say the least. Abigail is now 41/2 weeks old and I'm enjoying being mum to my two beautiful girls! I've even managed to do some crafting, so I hope to have some more posts very soon. I just might have to post more pics of "Little One" too!
