The cradle will rock

Hi guys, it's time for our new challenge over at 
this time it's hearts and flowers,
we are being sponsored by The Hobby House, thank you Jill,

Now i know that is usually love and romance but I thought out the box and made a babies cradle!!! I know your your thinking what!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
well here it is lol

Sweet lilac Flowers on the crib ends and a heart near the chipboard sentiment from scrap and craft,
The fabulous template came from Sandra's scrap shop and I love it, in fact I've also made another which you will see another day lol,

The papers are from Maja Design, the gorgeous lace over the crib top is from The Ribbon Girl and is 45mm Jessica white Guipure Lace,

See another couple of hearts on each teddy bear!! these I've had in my stash years but so wish I knew where to get more, also another flower on the inside too,

I used some more of the outer lace as a top for the blanket he's lying on,
 Then used some of the 13mm white droplet lace again from The Ribbon Girl as a trim around the outer side of his blanket,

Sleeping baby Tilda, who once again has become a baby Edwin is coloured with my distress re-inkers and fussy cut out, I attached a layer of folded over acetate to the back of him and made a slit in the blanket paper to slide the acetate under so it hides the base of it,
The bottom end/base has a bow on again which I've had in my stash years and it's all fixed together with a ivory pearl brad from TRG and yes the cradle does rock!!!!!!!!!! he he,

Sorry for so many pictures it's hard to take or get the detail in one one or two, oh and can you see the smaller flowers on the bar underneath too?

It is gorgeous. Those teddies with the heart look like buttons. If so, check this site out - www.dressitup.com. They specialize in those packets of buttons for different themes. I hope this helps you out. Excellent work.
