I wanted to make this one a bit more dimensional, and so the picture is floating on acetate which is part of the raised frame. It is a little hard to see in the photos, but you may get the idea from the little detail photos I have taken. I had this idea a few weeks ago, and had not had a chance to try it out... Acetate is GREAT for adding a little dimension to your work and also giving the impression of things floating in air.

The challenge with this was that in the linen range I have for the bub's cot only has a Lion, an Elephant and a Giraffe. Which although they were a bit of a challenge to recreate out of paper, I was able to trace and copy those ones. So I came up with a Rhino to go with the range. I don't think I did too bad on him... and yes I know he has hippo teeth but I thought they looked good and I don't think that the bub will notice this little error on him. I have since called him a Rhinoppotomas which well I think is just as cool... LOL
It's funny, I am not really a sewer, but I can say that my skills have improved in that area after all of many little squares that need stitching around, as well as the many crosses... I have always wanted to get into quilting, and well maybe one day I will now.
Here are some photos of the Nursery now all decorated and set up. If me going into labour is psychological well then we are all ready to go after the updating of this latest post. I still have a week and a half to go, and I am going to be patient besides being VERY uncomfortable now... I figure bub will come when it is ready!

I often find that when you can't find something the challenge of thinking what to do and then making it yourself is SO much more rewarding. I decided to copy the animals out of the range but make them out of paper. There was SO much sewing involved, but I LOVE the end product. I also helped me see the worth in this linen range as I now appreciate even more the amount of work that has gone into it... I initially chose it because it was just SO soft to touch...
Well I hope you enjoy my animals... I will post a pic of them up on the wall hopefully by the end of the week as I have a bit more work to do on it all....

Everyone spoilt me heaps and I can't remember the last time I got to open so many presents! I will post some pictures when I can get them off my mum's camera... but until then I thought I would share with you a picture of the thank-you cards that will be coming their way! I made these with a mixture of Kaisercraft papers and embellishments...
Now that all is done ready for bub, I will get some more scrapping done before it arrives..... shall post some more stuff this week!
