More of the baby present!

I hope you all had a great Christmas.  We had a lovely relaxing day here in St Leonards on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria.  My grandfather died 25 years ago, but my mum and her sisters kept the house, so we have been coming here for as long as I can remember.  It's lovely knowing that any time we feel like getting away we can just pack up and be here an hour and 10 minutes later!

I was hoping to pop in and share the rest of the baby present I have been making for my Sister in law before Christmas, but I ran out of time :-(  I finally finished making it this afternoon.

So this is the scrapbook page I made to announce Zac's arrival.  I am really pleased with how it has turned out.  I used the duck from Wagon Full of Fun and the Sweet Slumber specialty papers, just like on the box so that it matches...cos I LOVE matching!  I have spelled out Zac's name with chipboard letters, and covered them with dazzling diamonds.  I have had them for a while, but have only used them once before, so I think it is something that I need to work with a bit more often!

Of course, you can't have a present without a matching card!  Out came the duck and the sweet slumber paper again!  I have really enjoyed working with this duck, but I think I will be glad to put him away for a little while and play with something else!

Thanks for looking!
