I live in the world of grandbabies. My world revolves around my babies. I am so blessed that 3 of the grandbabies (oh ya and their parents too ..lol) live on the opposite end of our house. They give Nana a reason to get out of bed in the morning! My other grandbabies come and visit too, and Nana loves having them visit too! Everyone that said grandbabies are more fun than your own children were right. All this time I thought they were crazy, until I got my first grandbaby. I am still in awe over how much you can love a child that you didn't give birth to. Of course I love my daughters too, but not near as much as my grandbabies! lol Nana loves you Kaylee, Allan, Clayton, Isabel, and Keegan!

Paper Piecings by Nikki Design Team Blog Hop ~ May 15, 2012

Welcome to the Mix It Up Blog Hop brought to you by the Paper Piecings By Nikki Design Team. Two weeks ago, part of our amazing and talented design team inspired you with ways to mix and match Nikki's awesome patterns. This time, the rest of the team is going to toss it up a bit and show you how you can mix and match patterns - using different patterned and textured paper.

This is going to be a challenge for some (all) of us! Mixing and matching patterned paper isn't always easy - and I have to admit failing a time or two. BUT, isn't that the fun of paper piecing and scrapping? Testing our limits and trying new things? So without further rambling, here is my project:

I made a fairly easy project and just added camoflauge paper to the "Baby Mine Bears".  I also included a pic of how a "normal" set would look!

Thanks so much for taking a look at my Mix It Up project. 

Thanks so much for hopping with us today!
