I can’t believe it!!! My Baby is One!!! Little Ziggy has been in our arms for 1 year! It’s crazy! Do you all remember when we called her Ziggy and thought we might forever call her that because it was stuck in our heads? Now it sounds weird to say Ziggy! We had a fabulous Birthday Party over the weekend with theme One In A Melon!
These were actually created with an old Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set. You can check it out here! Paper Pumpkin is super fabulous for having random words and images for using on lots of different projects!
The card base is Real Red. I really went back and forth on whether to use a shade of pink or red. I went with red because I knew I could find that color in paper products, etc. for the party! Next, I stamped the Buffalo Check in Basic Black onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. I used the Stamparatus for this to get the perfect look and re-stamp it if I missed a spot with the ink. For the watermelon, I fussy cut them out after stamping them! Then I added 1 flat and 1 with Stampin’ Dimensionals! The greeting was stamped from another Paper Pumpkin Kit onto a Rectangle Stitched Shape with a little Call Me Clover bow in the corner!
As I type this on Claire’s birthday eve and look through all these photos, my heart is full and my eyes a bit wet! I have been a bit emotional this weekend just reflecting back on a year ago. Having my water break, being in labor for 33 hours, and having a baby via c-section on Memorial Day! Seeing this beautiful baby girl in my arms and how much she has grown and learned in just 1 year! My mind is blown and my heart is full! I just love her so much and can’t wait to see what she accomplishes next!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and we will be back to New Catalog preparation tomorrow! For now, I’m off to celebrate because my baby is one!
