Pansy picture and punch!

Robin gave me the Martha Stewart Pansy punch set.
There are two punches, one that does the straight edge and one that does the corners.
They line up beautifully.
I took a picture of a pansy in my yard and made this little picture to hang in my room.

New Cousin

Quinn was not too sure what she was supposed to think of her new cousin when Jacob arrived. The pictures were so adorable, I just had to scrap them.

Liz at The Scrappiest had the perfect sketch this week.

All paper is Crate Paper from the Sweet Branch Collection. Letters are from the Fancy Pants Father & Son line. Circle is hand stitched with DMC embroidery floss.

Pictures were taken on May 7th. Jacob was 3 days old and had just come home from the hospital.
