Sweet Baby of Mine

It's another week over at 2 Sketches 4 You and this week it's Kazan's sketch, which is her 3rd sketch (and what a sketch it is!).

And there is also a new contest over at Bitten By The Bug that gave me the opportunity to combine two challenges into one. The contest over at BBTB is something for a baby using brown as the primary color, have a heart somewhere on the project and use any cut from any of the Cricut cartridges!

A colleague of mine is having a baby in August and there is going to be a baby shower for her soon and due to a very busy schedule I had to combine both challenges into one.

Here is Kazan's sketch:

And here is my take:

Baby Formula for this creation:
-CS: The Paper Company - Sable, Neutral Tan, Neutral Tan Texture, Parchment Ivory, Cool Metallic Cover Amber, Cool Metallic Cover Lime, Blonde Columns and Burgundy Corduroy
-DPs: Paper Pizzazz "Brown Diamonds" and "Tan Scrollwork Stripes"
-Ribbon: Offray Lime Juice White Dots
-Stickles: LIme Green and Copper
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox Creamy Brown
-Diecuts: K&Company Smitten Hearts
-Cricut Carts: Doodlecharms for the bottles cut at 2"
Opposites Attracts for words "Joy" (using the base feature cut at 1 3/8"), "to" (welded using the upright feature cut at 2 1/2"), "your" (welded using the Opposite feature cut at 1 1/2"), "trish" (welded using the upright feature) and "baby" (welded using the base feature)
George for the ampersand
Cuttin Up for the word baby cut at 2 1/2"
-Computer fonts: scrapNfonts - Sweet using LD Punch Out, Baby using LD Remington Portable, Of using CK Bella, Mine using LD Warm Heart and Frame using DB Frilly Frames (r character)
