Don’t Worry

It’s Friday and the day is flying by with DH home working on the basement!  I’m tidying up the messes when I can to keep his work area fairly decluttered, holding boards, delivering food and caring for DS3 & DD.  Things are going pretty well, but boy, there are moments when every single person in the house needs me!  Yikes!  DS1 & DS2 arrive home from school in less than an hour and a busy weekend begins!  I took a little quiet time this morning while DD was napping to tinker in the craft room with DS2.  I chose to play along with the current photo inspiration challenge over at Mama Elephant!

I’ve been wanting to play with some of their adorable critters that have been hiding in my stash for a while now!

I was inspired by the soft colors and all the white in the photo.  Since the photo seemed to be a spa/relaxation theme, I decided to put a bunny (from the Honey Bunny set) in a bubble bath, soaking his worries away.  Who doesn’t like a long, relaxing bath at the end of a day?!  I layered Landscape Trio Creative Cuts using Shimmery White cardstock & foam dots for the bubbles.  I nestled the bunny behind the layers after coloring him with Copic markers.  I popped up the entire main panel and added tiny clear sequins.  The sentiment (from the True Friend set) continues inside to say, “it’s gonna be alright.”  I’m thinking about sending this to a new mother.  How well I remember the shock of having my first child.  The sleepless nights.  The wondering if I was doing anything right.  Hoping my little one was doing okay.  By the time child #4 arrived, I wasn’t such a worry wart, but what mother doesn’t continue to worry a little about her children?!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I’m off and running!

    This is adorable Melissa! I think it would be perfect for a new mom. I was just sharing with a mom at work that it might be time for her to turn off the baby monitor. The baby's in the room next door! She'll hear him but doesn't need to hear him every time he moves 🙂
