I can finally announce the happy event that has blessed our family and is the reason for my recent partial absence. We are now the proud grandparents of another beautiful grandson - as yet unnamed. He was finally born on the evening of October 7th, after a 10 day delay, to my middle daughter Elisha and her husband Tim.
Here is a little nightlight I made for his nursery.
As Elisha and Tim have a gorgeous Bichon Frisé and have decorated the nursery with dog images I wanted to stay with the theme. I drew the Bichon image, traced it to have two dogs, and lightly shaded both copies with grey Copics. I then cut them out.
I again used an empty gravy tub and covered it with a fun paper from the Kraftyhands Cute Kittens and Puppies CD. I then cut out two circles and lined the tub with another of the papers that I had printed onto vellum. I made frames for the circles using X-cut dies.
I added the two Bichons and embellished the tub with lace, buttons and bows.
I printed an image of a cute Yorkie - who looks like my dog - from the same CD for the top of the tub. The nightlight is lit by a battery operated LED light that fits neatly inside.
Me with the gorgeous newest addition to our family.
Congratulations Elisha and Tim, we are so very proud of you and know you will be fantastic parents.
I've made a few more items to celebrate our grandson's birth that I will show soon. Have a great weekend everyone. I know I will.
