Challenge #26: All About Baby!

Hello Users!
We have some EXCITING news this week...we are celebrating our Design Team Member, Heather's, new bundle of joy!

Please make a project that has something to do with babies!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday March 9th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE026 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Eka created a 4-sided card with her hoarded supplies that can be used as a brag-book! Stickers are 4 years old and the paper is from last season. Oh Baby!

Heather made these fabulous Creative Memories frames for the baby's room! While the frames were new, her paper was not! Way to use that paper and your Cricut! It was a two-fer...for one fabulous new baby girl!!

Irini used her hoarded doilie, mists, glitter, paper, glitter, rub-ons, and did I mention glitter for this pink-a-licious layout! Love the sparkle!

Siobhan pulled out her hemp twine, buttons, and a dusty {NEVER been used} Cricut cartridge to make this thank-you gift set for her friend. Can you guess her friend's nursery colors? :)

Sonya pulled out a NEVER been opened MME paper stack for this darling card! (She even had to break the seal on the pack!) And that paper stack thought it had been hung out to dry...;)

Steph used her hoarded stamps and papers to make this pastel beauty! Oh Boy, we are in Use It Tuesday heaven!

Alanna pulled out her paper scrap box for this sweet card...and her never been used stamps! The elephant is out of the craft room now!

DeNetra cried some BIG ol' baby crocodile tears after cutting into her hoarded lace for this one! She also used some DCWV paper she was saving. DeNetra, dry those eyes...it was SO worth it! She is darling!

And, Peggy, our Guest Designer who won our LOVE challenge, made this beauty with her hoarded pink pearls, ribbon, shimmer paper and pink roses! This is a girl's dream! Sweet little one? Yes, we think so! Thanks for designing for us, Peggy!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
