Gift for Baby Isabella



Recently, my SIL gave birth to her eighth and final child . . . she had a girl and named her Isabella. I felt like I wanted to send her something, but what do you give the mom who has everything she needs for baby? I thought about diapers, but this caught my eye on a couple blog sites (MaryJo and Lauren M) I saw and I felt inspired to make my own. Babies go through onesies so often, I figured she could always use some. I thought also for sure I had some tins to make the little carriage, but alas, I apparently have used them all, so I came up with this idea because I had these cute little plant pots from IKEA hanging around on my desk. I think it worked out perfectly!!! What do you think? Hope she likes it!!!

Stamps: Baby Moose (Hanna Stamps) Paper: DCWV Pale Pinkish Purple, Neenah Solar White Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: Pink Twill (thanks Jody), Pale pink flowers (Michaels wedding section), Prima Flowers, pink buttons (SU), swarovski crystals, gem brads (SU), Prima leaves (colored green with copic marker), one pkg. Gerber onesies, plant pot (IKEA), cellophane
