Cole's Baby Memory Pail

Well, it has only taken me 9 months to finally get the Baby Memory Pail made for Risa's new little boy, Cole (Dec. 2008 post). She was doing the same theme her twin sister, Roxie had done for her little boy, Jake and I made him one (my first - April 2008 post) using the "Wild About You" and "Monkey Business"stamp sets. I was going to use that set again, but do something different and before I got started, Stampin' Up! came out with this new wonderful Designer Series Paper called "Tall Tales" and then Denise Jorgensen shared this bag she made with it on one of the LNS groups. I now had a completely new vision in my head and had to change everything and get the new paper. I finally got it and finally got a chance to sit down and get serious and make it.

First, here is the bag by Denise that inspired me:

And now, the pail I made for Cole...

I love the way it came out and can't wait to send it to her, but first I need to finish one I am working on for her first son, Patrick. He is 3 y.o. now. I wasn't making these when he came along, so I am going to make him a small one with his favorite theme - trains. I am using the Choo Choo stamp set. I also wrote a new little poem (with the help of some stamping friends) since he is older, I decided he needed a different poem on his. I will post a picture of it when I finish it, which should be within the week - I hope!
