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!

Of course, I had to use my favorite Beary, Beary Fun Bears set and make my "almost famous" lol green bears!

PPbN June 5th Blog Hop with the Easter Lamb

Welcome to the Paper Piecings By Nikki Bi-Monthly Blog Hop! All of the Paper Piecings By Nikki Design Team Members participating this month will be using the same file. "Easter Lamb" is available here:


Here's my project:
I made a double page layout for my granddaughter's scrapbook.  As you can see I posed the lamb standing instead of sitting.  I also cut 2 extra heads and front legs and made 2 peeker lambs to put over photo mats.  I have to admit I probably wouldn't have bought this file with the Easter egg, because I didn't have any pics I could use it with, but this little lamb has been a blast to work with!  Thanks for the great idea for us all to use this lamb Mandy!!!  I even made a tear critter lamb too!  Her name is Lilly, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with her yet cause she's too cute to part with yet! lol
