My daughter is expecting her first baby next year (her second time of being pregnant and things are going well this time) and this will be my first grandchild. My dad was given a silver teething ring when he was born (95 years ago this December) and this was eventually passed on to my son who said he would like to pass it to his baby niece. I got a kraft box to put it in which I decorated using snippets of Dovecraft 'princess fairytale' paper and some kraft and pearlescent card for the die-cut Clearly Besotted elephant and added a little pearl 'eye'.
oops I forgot to line up the images on the lid before I took the photo!
And here's the box with the rather old and battered elephant
which has seen twelve babies through their teething troubles.
It'll be enjoying retirement this time around though and will be
there just for show.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Pixie's Snippets Playground 200th challenge 'use your snippets'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'wrap it up'
Fairytale challenge 'box or album'
Craft Your Passion challenge 'anything goes'
The elephant is now winging it's way to Australia along with a few baby clothes, maternity wear (took advantage of the Mothercare summer sales) and a pram blanket from my dad. He knitted all the squares and I just sewed them together and crocheted a border around the edge. Oh and if you were in any doubt, this is not going to be a pink baby... she already has a 'Minions' dress & hat and a 'Star Wars' bodysuit waiting for her !!
Thanks for taking the time to pop by and for your greatly appreciated comments
