Getting ready

Offiially, I am due in 55 days. I am soo happy I made it that far. Yesterday, at the checkup, I found out that he will be a big boy. He already weighs 2,3 kg (about 5 pounds) and his head is in start position.

I have been busy getting ready for the big day. During our trip to Upper Austria, we picked up the family crib. It was build in 1930 and our little baby will be the 21st baby sleeping in it.

I also got the Christening gown ready. It is over 100 years old and we treasure it a lot.

Carseat, stroller, clothes (all hand me downs) are washed and ready to go, diapers bought. Today I will pack my hospital bag. I am sooo thankful for that pregnancy. After the miscarriage and the rough ride during the pregnancy, everything seems to come to a happy end.

On the scrapping side, I have been busy working on my sister's wedding album. I started off with the great sketch by Juliana Michaels Creative Scrappers 181 but it turned out totally different. I don't think I can submit it since I do not see a resemblance anymore between the sketch and the final LO. Does that ever happen to you???

I used the October kit from Swirlydoos for this LO. Just love the neutral colors - they seem to go with everything. I left the journaling spot empty so that my sister can record her feelings and memories herself.

Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,


  1. Oh Elisabeth, how exciting for you....55 days now that makes it around January 6th??
    Your family crib and dress is amazing, I have an old shawl that I am handing down to my Neice (she is due in April)
    All the best and take extra care in these last few days and have a nice relaxing Christmas. Debbiexx

  2. beautiful layout. what a beautiful crib and christening gown. won't be long now. try and relax and just count your blessings.

  3. You have some wonderful family traditions! The christening gown and crib are both beautiful and meaningful.
    My layouts frequently end up looking completely different than the sketch I started with. I think that makes them completely my own, right? Love the cluster of flowers on this layout.

  4. Oh my! That buggy and christening gown are beautiful! I hope you are doing well and that the baby stays in the hotel a bit longer!!! HUGS!!!

  5. I just realized that you started off with my sketch for your beautiful LO! Hey...if it inspired you in some way to scrap those photos, that is all that really matters!!!
