Greeting Farm Friday - It's a BOY!

It's Friday - my favorite day of the week cuz it means the weekend is here and I get to show you my TGF creation. This week is particularly special b/c not only was the PERFECT Anya released yesterday, but I also found out on Wed that our baby due in Feb is a BOY!!! We have two little girls so this is very exciting. Not to mention I was driving my hubby crazy the past 5 months b/c ALL I would look at was boy stuff and blue paint for the nursery so I'm glad that I was RIGHT. haha Now, I can look to my hearts content and really start planning the room transformation from baby girl to baby boy.
Ok, on to my project, I knew I wanted to use Mama Anya and got this fabulous star chipboard album from my dear friend Angela and started to alter it for a little mini album for once my son arrives. I also got to play with my new Glimmer Mist and O-M-G I LOVEY this stuff WAYYYY to much. I am going to have to save up so I can get more and more colors. This was much too fun to play with and only have one color. *giggle* I colored Anya using Copics - I also have to admit, I am loving the way Anya's hair turned out. Still working that technique out - I'm just not as naturally gifted as some of you out there! Or maybe it's b/c I only play once a week. LOL Now, if only I looked as good as her. I almost posted a belly pic for you - but was not pleased with the way they turned out (stupid double chin) so not happening!
