Baby Girl Pram....


Hi everyone it's a little wet here today! 
Today I have the pram to share I made for my son and DIL for the birth of our latest addition Mia.
The photo was taken yesterday afternoon when she was sleeping peacefully without a dummy as Daddy was determined no dummy this time so he did not have to go to the supermarket in the middle of the night when they couldn't find one!
I received a photo this morning and she had a dummy she has been up every 10 minutes all night lol.
The pram was made from a Hasslecastle template.
All cardstock is from AnnaMarie Designs.
Sue Wilson bow dies.
Bits from my stash.
Thanks so much for your congratulations.
