More Maternity Photos

More photos of my sweet daughter and her hubby from this past weekend.
Vanessa sometimes calls the baby her little pumpkin. 

My take on the picture frame photos I've seen on Pinterest

Just too cute.

Beth obtained the memorial bricks for my mom and dad at the Garland Sr Citizens Veteran's Garden.  Love the baby's shoes along with Star and Vanessa's feet and the bricks.

Photography sessions!

My youngest daughter, Vanessa, is expecting her first baby next month and we wanted to do some maternity  photos.  We had wanted to shoot lots of outdoor ones, but the weather didn't cooperate.  It was quite cool (by Texas standards) and very windy.  So most of the shots were taken indoors by a window.  Here are my top 3 favorites.

Hey Dad, you'll hear me better soon!
Poor Vanessa got a bit chilled on this one.  We are hoping to do a few more before the baby comes.  This time outdoors and warmer weather!

This past weekend, I babysat my sweet granddaughter in the morning and then her mommy, Beth, helped me do some Fall photos.  These are my top 3 favorites.

My little pumpkin girl.

Love the apple!
No you can't have MY pumpkin!

CDAC Progressive Challenge #21

This is my third challenge from Crafter's Digital Art Center.  This image is from Doodle Pantry and when it first arrived in my email box, I was stumped!  I "slept on it" and here what happened!

   Pamper your PIGGIES!

The card base is from Bazzill's Hot Pink and the layers are from a paper pack that I picked up at a Scrapbook convention a couple of years back.  I folded the pink dot paper and cut it with Stampin' Up's Top Note die with the fold just inside the cutting area to form a card.  I cut the Piggy image with the Top Note die and then trimmed along the perforations.  The Piggy, background and blanket are colored with chalks from Pebbles Inc and her toes are done with Glaze Gel Pen.  The Hot Pink ribbon and the green photo turn are from my stash.
The inside sentiment was created in Word and printed mirror image onto Grafix Rub-onz.  It is great for things you don't have the rubber stamp for!  I created a "pocket" for the gift card.  I located a gift card by doing a Google Search for Pedicure Gift Card, printed and cut it out.
