Autumn Baby Jake!

 Image- Baby jake from Saturated Canary Digi's.
Morning Peeps!!

Now, try not to giggle at me too much but did you ever make something and think you would really rather keep it yourself?!!! yup that would be me with this cute little pillow box!!!
The challenge over on the Saturated Canary challenge blog is autumn colours and one of my mum's friends had a baby boy last week so instead of a card I made this cute pillowbox, (..which is actually big enough to nicely fold a cute little onesie into!!) 

I used ginger and honeycomb promarkers to get that lovely autumnal orange onesie on Jake and then sandstone, caramel and cocoa for his cutie little hat and boots. He is just so squidgey cute, I want to squidge those little chunky knees!!!!

I made the pillow box using a template from Funky Hand's new 12 crafters crafting papercraft factory and using the workspace I opened the template and then swapped to the craft the year away one to get that gorgeous autumnal spotty pattern.

Little Mo has a breakfast date with his BF Sophia again this morning (...which is great as he has been asking for her every morning since she came last week!!!!!) so we are just waiting for her to arrive now! Mo has been up and down to the window like a yo-yo!! He says " its best to look out the window every 5 mins because that makes her get here quickerer" .......she lives right next door!!!

Here's another piccy of baby Jake from a different angle!!
I added some rafia, stamped leaves and an orange rose for decoration and then a little SU stamped tag, cute!!!

Have a fabby day peeps!! once I have dropped the little peeps off at school and nursery I am going to have a few hours making some more bits for the ladies evening on friday, I am sooooooo nervous about it but at least I get a whole night with my BF!!!!!!
Thankyou for popping in on me!!
Huge Hugs Lou xxxxx

OOoo this is gorgeous!! I agree with the not wanting to give creations away...I have a few cards that I just cannot bear to part with and have hidden them away so no-one sees them and wants to buy them!lol
Thanks also for the lovely comment you left...my hands are much better today xoxo

Hi Lou! I think this must be just about the cutest creation...EVER! I love the pillow box and the fact that it's large enough to hold a onesie, how perfect. Plus, that Saturated Canary image is adorable and your coloring really brings it to life. Lovely work! Hugz, Cheryl
