Baby blog hop with the Dragonflies

Good Morning and Welcome

WE are having a BLOG HOP as well as a Challenge this fortnight!

This year our theme is - BABIES!

We have some wonderful sponsors who have generously donated lots of goodies for you and our wonderful Hilde also has a freebie to give to you to use for the challenge if you want to - go to the main blog for this.

Our Sponsors for this Blog Hop are listed below but the twist is that they are associated with each individual member of the Design Team's blogs, so you need to go to their blog and follow the instructions to be in a chance to win. There is a prize for the Challenge winner as well and our normal TOP THREE awards. You do not have to go in the BLOG HOP as well as the Challenge, but what else have you to do with your time? Of course you will enter both!! However, you do have to be a member of this blog to be eligible for the Challenge and Blog Hop prizes. 


Sponsors: Digistamps4Joy Prize:

Wynn and Sammy will be donating a small gift as their blog prize.

The way you can hop is by thinking of numbers! Go to each Design Team's blog, read the clues and THINK OF NUMBERS while you do this! Remember - our theme is BABIES, so what do Babies have related to NUMBERS?

There may be a small amount of poetry in there........but I am sure you will be able to work that all out! You collect a word or maybe a whole phrase from each blog along the hop and you need to make sure that
  1. You leave a comment on a blog to be eligible for that blog's prize and enter the main challenge
  2. You DON'T mention the word/phrase in your comment on that blog!
Leave a comment on the main blog as well as entering your own Baby themed project into the Challenge on the  Crafting with Dragonflies . Also follow the instructions on the main blog to finish off the hop from there. 

Happy Hopping Folks

                               ''BABIES "

Yes we are blog hopping over at Crafting with Dragonflies and the theme is babies. Now, as those who know me will verify, this means lots of oohs and ahhs from me cos I just LOVE babies. Hilde challenged us to dig out our favourite baby photo but then all them are my favourites. I just couldn't choose, without upsetting one of my 'babies'. I have two you see, as I have twins, and I couldn't do that could I?

So I decided to go with a photograph of a very special baby who came into all our lives last year.

                                                "A Special Baby Boy''
                      (now who could that be?)

Yes you may have guessed it. It's Prince George of Cambridge. He was born on the 22nd July 2013 at 4.24pm and weighed in at 8lbs 6oz. He is third in line to the British throne and is named as George Alexander Louis. He has the two most gorgeous smiling eyes you could ever wish for.

Yes two beautiful eyes indeed but look at that sweet little mouth too.....gorgeous!!! I could eat him!! He'll bring a lot of joy to two delightful people, his proud parents Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and  Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and his Great Granny and Grandpa too I'm sure.

Now on to the challenge. I decided to make a mini flip flap album which could be used to add those precious baby photos. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube, if you do a search. So I won't bore you with all the details of how I went about making it as I've done enough waffling about my love of babies.

The image on the front of the album was from one of our sponsors Meljen. They have some great digis over there so please find time to pop over and visit, you won't be disappointed!

  1. What an amazing keepsake album Wynn! Just adorable. And all the baby pictures are my favorites too but it would have been pretty cool to see a few of your twins, doubly blessed, and double the trouble I'm sure, lol.
