Snail Belated Birthday for BBTB

1

This week the design team were asked to use the snail cut from Walk In My Garden. I used Basic Grey papers again and added a liberal sprinkling of gems and rather wobbly sewing. The sentiment is from a dollar set by Inkadinkadoo. The twill ribbon is by Martha Stewart, and the pearl gems are by Papermania.
My day has been very lively so far, Max and I were breakfasting at 7.30, running around the garden at 8am, going for a walk at 8.30, picking up dozens of toys off the floor at 9.30, throwing them all down again at 9.35, all this by the time I am usually having my first coffee of the day. God certainly got the design right when he made it impossible for women of a certain age to have babies :)

From Joan in Fla., just adorable and the papers are so beautiful. Didn't know they came in 6 X 6. So happy to hear about Max. How right you are I sure wouldn't want to start over later in life. Have fun with Max and hope for a long nap.

Love

Glad Max is better Enfys and I have to agree about God designing women of a certain age unable to have any more babies!! That did make me laugh!!! I think the same every time my 4 darling grandchildren leave me completely worn out!!!!!!!

Enfys you are so right about women having babies. I also feel that way when I have my little ones. Thank goodness we can recover when they go home to Mom. Just love all your work.
