Hello again and Happy November!!  I hope you had a fun Halloween yesterday and maybe are coming back down from that sugar high, am I right?!  lol!  Even more fun....did you enjoy the sneaks that you saw yesterday with the latest Labels of Love II set?  Well, there is much more to see today!!  Today the Baker's, along with some lovely guests, are featuring 4 new adorable sets and I just can't wait to see all the samples for this one!!

The first set is a special one, in that it is from a NEW ILLUSTRATOR!!  This release, we have the pleasure of introducing a new illustrator, Emily Burger along with her line of Embracing Grace stamps.  She has designed a set, Love Grows Here, which features 7 tree vignettes for year-round fun and versatility!


Ack!  How cute is that?  I used the "tree in bird" vignette...isn't it just adorable?!  And let me just tell you, not all of the trees look alike! ;)  I wanted to do something fun and quirky, just like the image, so I used papers from the MME Everyday Flair 6x6 paper pack.  I also think that the Picket Fence Border Die makes such a cute touch!

But there's more today!!  While some of the others are sneaking a Moka Katie and Life is a Dance, I am getting to sneak with for you the other Moka...Moka Morgana!!


Ack!  Another tooo cutey image!  This is actually an unfinished wood frame that I "dolled" up for my little princess Catie. :)  I took a 2.5" x 2.5" wood frame, exactly like the one shown here:

(picture from the Craft Critique blog post HERE)

Anyone else buy a basketful of these frames when they came out a while ago?  Yep, I still have quite a stash!!  Anyway, I decorated it with papers from Authentique's Uncommon 6x6 papers and then added the adorable Moka Morgana and perfect sentiment to my frame.  I just love it!!!  Moka Morgana is illustrated by the super talented, Nancy McKinney for her Moka Collection.  Her daughter actually inspired this Petite set of 5, and is also named after her!  Then I finished my frame with a Felt Pearl Blossom in Pink from Maya Road. 

And that's it for me today!!!  I hope you can take some time to see what everyone has in store for you...I can't wait to see myself!!
