Little Momma ~ Amanda ~ six weeks to go!!!

Hi everyone!!! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!!  It's cloudy and very humid here, but not raining!!!  We already had 3 inches Friday and yesterday, and makes it real hard to take a good photo!!!  This is the best I can do for now...  This photo is of my daughter Amanda, who as you can see is very pregnant!!!  But still not very big at all considering she only has 6 more weeks to go in this photo...  I think I was probably that big in my 4th month and not my 8th month... lol...  She said she was going to wear that bikini know matter what, and by golly and she did, too!!!!lol....  Look at that little round basket ball...  Anyway, enough about that and on with this layout....  First of all I used a fantastic sketch from Liz Qualman over at My Little Sketch Blook She has so many fabulous sketches, you've got to check 'em out!!!  Here's the one I used.  It's actually her sketch icon, but she said that we could use it if we liked, and I thought it would work perfect for this layout!!!! 

The next challenge I most definitely was going to play is over at  Stuck On U Sketches.  This being the second week of the month the girls have a challenge instead of a sketch and so this worked perfect  for me.  The challenge is "buttons".  Pretty easy, so you can see that I used 2 buttons on my layout.  I stacked them on top of each other over the turned up edge..  And so now that I'm on a roll I wanted to check out some of the other fantastic blogs I like to participate in, just to see what they have going on, and just look what I found!!!  WOW!!!
Cute Card Thursday ~ Someone Special ~  You can't get more special than my baby having her own baby!!!!
If The Shoe Fits Scrap It ~ Rain or Shine  ~ I chose Shine!!
Incy Wincy ~ Color challenge from yummy photo!!
Meljen's Designs ~ Flowers and Blooms
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Summer Breeze
PaperPlay Challenge ~ Brown Plus  ~ you have to use brown!  This one was easy because I love to use brown!!
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge ~ Recipe - 1 Ribbon (Brown Bow) 2 Patterned Papers (The swirly cream color with brown swirls and the SU Thouroughly Modern SDP and 3 Embellishments (1 flowers, 2 buttons, and 3 heart stick pins)
Woo Hoo 10 challenges, acrually just 9 I was too late on one!  Oh well, 9 is still awesome for me!!! 
Okay now here's the list of scrappy things I used:
SU Bermuda Bay CS and Ink
Creative Imaginations ~ Karen Russell Sepia Scroll
SU Chocolate Chip CS
SU Thoroughly Modern Designer Series Paper
Martha Stewart  ~ Eyelet Lace Border and Corner Punch

hehehe that is a tiny belly but who knows, right? It might be all baby or she might get really big soon. Either way, congratulations to Amanda on being a Little Momma and good luck with delivery.

Beautiful layout!
Love the sketch too.

hugs to U!

Hello again fern!! I won't be late with my comments today!! lol
This is fantastic Fern!! first, you dd looks so beautiful very pregnant!! hahah love the color combo!! love the way you used those vibrants colors with elegance, great job my friend!!

shari said...

Another beautiful layout! I love the color choices. Your daughter reminds me of a girlfriend of mine years ago in highschool (many years! HA) She wore her bikini the whole pregnancy, and even cut a hole in her lawn chair so she could sun bathe on her belly. Your daughter looks adorable! Shari (cricutrookie)

"Little Momma"! So cute!!! Fern, you are too much!!! What a wonderful layout and, of course, you had to make it perfect for your daughter!!! Great job!

Audra said...

great layout and fun pic!!

Scossie Jane said...

Great layout Fern, you've rocked the challenges again GF - absolutely love the colour combo, the pink against the blue is soooooo striking, and with the brown to match Amanda's itty bitty bikini - awesome....

I have to admit, I was fortunate to be as tiny as that when I was carrying my two babies (1 at a time I hasten to add). I remember telling people I had ten days to go and they didn't believe me LOL - and I went full term with both of them! My daughter was the opposite, she was BIG with her babies - so we're opposites on this one - hehe.....

Hi Fern!
I kept looking at the photo and thinking to myself NOT very pregnant..I think I was bigger then she but I was kinda smaller too during my pregnancies. Someday I will have to do a page of my preggo pictures.
Great again at combining challenges! Thanks for helping lead me to some...its more work then I thought trying to keep track of what they each want and adding it all together in a post!
Really love this page!!!!

Irena said...

beautiful page :)

Sandi Clarkson said...

Amanda is a very brave girl ... I didn't get very big either but didn't go the bikini route! Way too modest for my own good. It was my boobs that got huge! AS for the page, fabulous as always. Love the color combo .. hope you have a great week!

Cheryl said...

This is a gorgeous lay out! I love your color combo. Thank you for joining us for the Meljen’s Designs challenge. We hope you will join us again.

Barb Craft said...

First... let's just say that being that tiny at 8 months is just so unfair to all of women who were big and fat and miserable at that point in our pregnacies!! LOL!! What a cute little pregnant person she makes!!
I love the sketch and the way you used just a few vibrant colors... it really makes the photo stand out!! This is another gorgeous one!!
Enjoy your break from the rain... we are getting hit again today and tomorrow!! Enough already!!
Have a great week Fern!
Barb :)

Beautiful layout of your beautiful daughter! I didn't show at all during my pregnancies, which was nice because I didn't have to buy maternity clothes, but no one believed me! LOL! Never catch me in a bikini though, preggie or not!!
Thanks so much for joining us in our "Flowers & Blooms" challenge at Meljen's Designs!! Good Luck!
