Baby Shadowbox

Welcome to another Serendipity Stamps challenge! I switched things up a bit for this "baby themed" challenge and decided to try my hand at something other than a card. (Don't worry, they're still my first love.). I had saved this small shadow box from an embellishment purchase and thought it would be perfect for my project. I began by choosing four KI Memories patterned papers to serve as the backdrop for the box.

I stamped these darling images from the "Baby Girl" stamp set and then colored them with Copic Markers. I then cut it out with Nestabilities, popped it up on three layers of dimensionals and added a green silk bow. I cut out the little booties and popped them up on dimensionals and added them to the main image. Most of the other embellishments such as the alphas and epoxy stickers are also by KI Memories. I found them as part of a kit at Ross for $2.99. What a surprise. I never find anything I want there. I guess I can't say that any more now, can I?

Here's a close-up of the stamped image. So cute!

The "em" in the upper left corner stands for my 8 month old granddaughter Emelia. We like to call her Emme or Em for short. Want a little peak at my little munchkin? We snapped this shot today just before she went swimming in her backyard kiddie pool. Hard to tell that she was a preemie isn't it? :-)
