Triplet Update

So no card today, just an update and pictures on these sweet little babies.
Last Saturday, the 26th, they turned 9 months old and they are evolving into little moving machines.
Connor and Justin are doing the army crawl and Anna is moving about by just rolling from place to place.  They had their 9 month check up and are all doing so well.  They are in the lower percentiles as far as weight and size but that is to be expected.  The boys are 19 lbs. and Anna is 17 lbs.  All are doing fine.
Hope you enjoy these pictures.

They recently have had their first taste of baby foods like carrots, apple and pears, bananas.  This is Connor with the new method of feeding babies who will not eat solids.  Don't have a picture to show but my sister shared a video on FB and Connor was not about to open his mouth.  It was so funny and the face he made was priceless.
So the idea behind this is to put spoonful's of food on high chair and then the carrot which they rub it in or play with it with their hands.  Of course everything goes into their mouths so that helps them get used to the texture and helps with the gagging reflex.  Not the cleanest of methods but whatever works.  Lol....   You should see him when he really gets messy.

Eating this solid food is hard work.  Anna fell asleep in her little bathrobe.  After they are done playing and eating, it is time for a bath.

Make It Monday #349 with Ashley Negative Die Cut Backgrounds

So for how simple this is, it sure took me a long time.  When I watched the video, when Ashley made her first cuts, it reminded me of a butterfly.  So that is what I wanted to make.  The part I was having trouble with was the inside of the hearts, just trying to get the right combination.  Finally found some thing that worked

                                            This is this week's MIMI hate that I can't center this correctly.  Something with how they program it, I think.

Fushion Card Challenge 5th Anniversary

I was able to make a card for the 5th Anniversary of Fusion
I picked the photo of butterflies and tried two or three techniques for this.  This was dropping CP ink on a wet card front.  I first stamped with black and then clear embossed them.  I wet the whole area with clear water and then dropped in color from CP re-inkers.  It gave it a real intense color.  Wasn't sure what type of card to make it since it was so colorful.  
Used Avery Elle Butterflies
