I♥PROMARKERS challenge 28

Well this weeks challenge at I ♥ Promarkers  has been set by me .I chose a Seaside theme as I should have been  at the seaside on the Isle of Wight this week but due to some personal issues we had to cancel it . :(
  I was nt really thinking about what image i would use when I set the challenge ,so it turned out to be quite a challenge for me too !
After much searching I found this gorgeous image by Mo Manning .I have had it a while and probably only used it once .I used a digital scrapbooking kit to design the background  and I cut out a couple of layers of the embellishments to decoupage them ,adding a bit of glossy accents to give them depth and shine .

About time too Del !

 My beautiful grandson Del  was finally born this morning after a marathon 39 hour labour ,  He decided to take the long scenic route , got a bit lost and then came out facing the wrong way round , he even managed to tie his umbilical cord in a knot !
He caused his poor mummy a lot of problems throughout the pregnancy, with sickness  everyday , he was a small bump and there were concerns that he was not growing properly - well he came out as a very hefty 7 lbs 13 1/2 oz so definitely not small !
He has got a lot of bruising to his beautiful face and  his head is a gorgeous shade of purple .
I made his card as a keepsake so have put a photo of him on it .
My lucky blog followers get to see him first as his parents don't want any photo's put on facebook just yet
