Newborn Baby Girl Gift (Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #16)

Well hello everyone! And thanks for stopping by. Today is a very happy day, since in a couple of hours I’ll be heading out of the house to meet sweet baby Zoe: my friend A’s newborn baby girl. Some of you may remember that a few months back I created a piece of home decor for my own baby girl. That piece hangs in her bedroom and it puts a smile on my face every time I look at it. So when it came to creating the prefect gift for baby Zoé, I thought of making something similar. And for an extra bit of fun, I am also entering this piece in the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, where we are being challenged to use our oldest Lawn Fawn set (this one came out in 2012!)

A few months back, my friend A decided to start watercolouring for the first time in her life. I was so excited when she told me about this, that I immediately offered to stamp out a few images for her to practice her watercolouring and create something beautiful. She graciously accepted my offer and, a few days later, found herself playing with a few images from the “Flutter By” Set by Lawn Fawn (available in the US / Switzerland).

When she was done watercolouring, she didn’t make much of her images, so I asked her if I could have them back and make something with them. Little did she know that a few months later I would be creating this piece for her newborn baby girl! So, in a way, this is a present from baby Zoe both from me, but also from her own mummy! I can’t wait to hand it over to my dear friend A and see her surprised face! (If she’ll let me, I’ll snap a picture and share it with you soon).

Do you also own this classic Lawn Fawn set? If so, what has been your favourite creation with it? Leave me your links, I’d love to check out your projects and get inspired to create a bit more! I hope you enjoyed today’s home decor project and… until next time!
