Welcome Baby Leo!

Anna-Karin Evaldsson is a very special member of the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team. Last year there were a lot of changes in her life, including a move from one continent to another and just a few months later, a new baby! Leo arrived weeks ahead of schedule (and just 20 minutes after reaching the hospital!) but thankfully he and Anna-Karin are both doing well.  

We want to show Anna-Karin how special she is to us, so we are giving her a virtual baby shower today to celebrate Leo's birth! Even though we can't be with her, we send our love and a special crafty surprise. We invite you to visit each team member/shower guest's blog to see what they created for this new little guy. 



If you have a message for Anna-Karin, please visit Eileen's blog to leave your well wishes in the comments – then she can read them all at once. Thanks for being part of our celebration!

Welcome to the world baby Leo!! I created a special ATB just for you:










I encourage you to hop along to the blogs of the other members of the Inspiration Team. We've all created projects to celebrate the new baby!

I am also going to share this project over at the Mixed Media Monthly "Birds of a Feather" challenge. I think it is appropriate, don't you? ;-)

Most of the supplies I used for these cards can be found at Inspiration Emporium. Follow the links below and use my code JUICE there to save 10% if you go shopping. I will also point out that US shipping is always $5 and international shipping is just $10. ;-)
