Baby Kisses.....

This week the Noel Mignon Design Team is teaming up with Sketch Inspiration. Noel is offering a $40.00 gift certificate to her shop! Which is perfect timing, since the next kit, Sonoma County, is going up for pre-order next Monday. What do you have to do? Just become a member of Sketch Inspiration and create a LO using THIS sketch. (sketch #114)

On to my LO.....this is a picture of Cort giving kisses to her "baby" Gloria. Cort has never gotten attached to any dolls or stuffed animals until "Gloria," her Bitty Baby, came along. I don't have any idea how she got that name either. Not one person or family member is named Gloria. Gloria has an entire wardrobe, her own bed, high chair, and potty chair. Cort requests outfit changes, wants to put her on the potty chair, and brings her into the kitchen to "feed" her. It is pretty cute to watch her grab her by the leg, upside down, and drag her around place to place. When she hugs and kisses her dolly, I tell her what a good "Mommy" she is. (With a bit of a lump in my throat............if you KWIM.......)

I used Noel's Seaside Cottage and bits from the Object of my Affection kits, some vintage music paper, paint, and Glimmer Mist.

Have a wonderful day! As always, thank you for visiting.....it brings a smile to my face when you stop by!!! I LOVE reading your comments.....it's like a mini visit! : )

It is when I read a story like this that I realise why we scrap...these memories will be forgotten if you don't scrap it.

I understand that feeling...somehow it makes me feel I have a leaky seam.
