Love Bandits

Today has been an exciting day!! I officially became an aunt again. My sister had her two baby girls this morning, tipping the scales at almost 6 pounds each. They were born 30 minutes apart and I cannot wait to meet them! Molly Rose and Harbour Rose are their names. It's times like these that I wish we lived closer. She lives all the way across the country from us and it's killing me that I can't go visit this very second!! Both mom and babies are doing well and I hope to talk to my sister again soon. In the meantime, I will live vicariously through her facebook page. Hee hee!!

In honor of my new nieces, I have a layout about them! Okay...you can't really see them because my sister is still pregnant in these photos. This was at her going away party last fall. I love these pics of my kids and her!


These are wonderful Love Bandit papers from Bo Bunny. I just love the colors!! I put my circle punches to work to make this fun border and added in some Bo Bunny diecut stickers and buttons.


And I also have a card to share that I made using the same Bo Bunny papers. I tried making one of those trendy accordian flowers, too!


I love it!! It does add quite a bit of bulk to the card...think I can still fit it into an envelope??


I wish I had some photos of the new babies to share, but I don't yet. I am hoping my mom will send me some. She is lucky enough to be there, holding those sweet bundles right now.

Hope you all had a great Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by!!
