Julian Michael Cinefro

I think I told you about the new man in my grand nephew, Julian.

Julian was born on Oct 22nd. That was the weekend I was headed back to New Jersey to teach at One Little Spark in Tuckerton. In fact, Julian's daddy called me as I was headed to the airport.

I finally got to meet the newest member of the family last weekend. My niece and her hubby invited the entire Corder Clan (we're not that big...only 4 additional people) to their new house in Nashville.

I loved this Webster's Pages paper but it was such a large image (the bottom quarter of a 12x12), that I didn't want to cover it with a lot. So I tried my hand at the rosette. I don't have Tim's fancy die and can't see spending all that money for one when you can make one simply enough. Figure out how big you want the end circle (3 inches for me). Cut a strip of paper 1/2 that width (1.5 incehs). And score every 1/2 inch. Then flip over the paper, offset by a 1/4 inch and score every 1/2 inch. This creates valleys and mountains to help you fold the paper. Fold in sections. I used Glossy Accents and that new glass glitter on the edge of the medallion.

The "Welcome Baby" was from a PaperTrey Ink set. And I sponged color while the Nestie was still in place.

Here's Julian in his reindeer suit blowing bubbles a few days after Christmas. He's such a cute cuddly guy. But he is a big baby! With a mother that's 5'11" and a father that's 6'4" - well is it any wonder that he's 97 percentile at 2 months? (BIG GRIN)

Did you know that I knit? I only knit socks. This was my first try at baby socks (and cabling). Purple is Daddy's favorite color. I'm glad they fit!


I'll have an announcement tomorrow...check back!
