Falling For You! PPA144


Whew what a wild three weeks it has been getting used to the "new normal" of having a brand new baby in the family!  Granddaughter Emma is doing just fine - her mom's recovery has been a bit slower than expected but she is improving daily.  I have been helping out every day but unlike Emma's parents I sleep very well when I get home at night!  Thanks to so many of you for your cards, comments, and good wishes!  

Thought you might like to see a photo from Miss Emma's first photo shoot at two weeks old.  Baxter really isn't as forlorn as he looks in this picture.  He has proven to be a great big brother and sleeps near Emma all the time.



        Pals Paper Arts has a beautiful fall color challenge this week - hope you join us!

What rock have I been hiding under??!! So nice to see you posting again. Your card is fabulous - of course I'm especially loving those maple leaves :)

Little Emma is sooooo cute!! Poor mama with 3 days of labour and a c-section but hopefully that has been quickly forgotten when holding her precious little girl. COngrats to you to grandma :)

Linda love your fall card and the colors are perfect. I haven't purchased those leaves ...yet, as I keep going back to French Foliage.

I was oohing and aahing over Emma and almost forgot to comment on the card. (Sorry, you've been overshadowed!!)

The card is wonderful - that spray of falling leaves with those wonderful stamps is beautiful!
