Framed baby wall hook


You can never have too many hooks in my humble opinion. They are so useful. Throw your towel over it to dry, hang your jacket up, use it for an easy-reach burp cloth in the nursery, etc.

This sweet photo frame had a fabulous hook on it and I couldn't resit purchasing it from T.J.Max a few weeks ago. Little did I know it would come in handy for creating the perfect gift using the new stamp set, Little Bundle, by Practicing Creativity Designs.

After painting the wooden frame a soft pink, I stamped a lavender piece of CS with the long leafy stem from Fall Fest, and then over stamped in white, the buttons from Little Bundle
Inside the frame I placed a matted B&W cardstock photo sticker and added the sentiment and moon image to the outside.

I'm just so happy with this project...it almost makes me want to have a little girl...ALMOST! *chuckle*

Be sure to stop by and see what the other girls have done. I was blown away by the adorable baby gifts they came up with!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful Wednesday!

*mwah*

You've been making some gorgeous baby things!! You're right - the hook is a great idea as a hold-anything.

I also need a belated b'day card for my baby niece but her Portlander parents do NOT do pink or purple, so I may have to CASE the orange card in your last post.

So glad your personal gloom cloud has listed :)
