Hi everyone!!! 

I'm here today with THE most special of occasions.
My sweet, darling friend Danielle has FINALLY had her baby girl!! We've all been waiting for such a long time for her to arrive and we're so very excited for Danielle, Mike, Grayson and Miles.

In celebration, we thought we'd host a bit of a hop.

You should have arrived here from the oh-so-talented Yana's blog.

I went with bright, vibrant colours for the background (all Distress Inks), the tags are cut out using Simon Says Stamp cardstock, and a Hero Arts Tag die. The sentiment is all Neat and Tangled (of course!). The onesie is from Simon Says Stamp, and the patterned paper it's been paper pieced out of is from Ruby Rock-It :)

Next up on the hop is the incredible JUNE!

In case you're lost or would like to hop back to another link in the hop, here's the full list
