"The Tiny Ones Get On Splendidly"

My turn on the Gossamer Blue blog has rolled round again; and this time I travelled way back: not just with my photo (which is of a very small Sian) but also with my supplies, which are from a kit of about a year ago. 

From High In The Sky for Gossamer Blue

Some of the Creative Team pulled together a "Retro Redo" for April ( because of course, while a fresh new kit is pretty fine, a much loved older one deserves a little attention too). and for my contribution, I came up with a recipe for using up whatever you might find, on one of those days when you stick your hand in a bag of leftovers supplies and hope something you like comes to the surface.


It's a "moveable feast": one of those recipes you can supplement with a little of whatever you have on hand, and take out whatever you don't like. And it'll work every time. You can find it here on the Gossamer Blue blog : let me know if it's useful and I'll stir up another one.


Oh, and that tiny baby? She got on just fine, and when she had a tiny baby of her own some years later, Auntie Ed was still around to repeat her advice. Which turned out to be right, Any guesses on weight anyone?

I know it's only a tiny sliver of your mum in that photo but that does look like you, doesn't it?

As for your weight well ... I was 5lb something and you look as tiddly as I did, so I'll guess 5lb 6oz. (Do I win your weight in sweets?)

My own tiny baby was 5lb 5oz. I was thinking similar for you, but when I met my great nephew as a new born he seemed tiny and weighed rather more than that!

A beautiful layout with a beautiful photo x

Well my own tiny baby was 3lb 5oz. I don't think you look quite that small so I would go for 5lb 1oz. I honestly thought that was you holding a baby. The likeness in that small snippet is remarkable. What a lovely photo it is too!

Goodness Sian, simply stunning

This is such and adorable page, Sian! I love it! And I am terrible at guessing weight, but I'll be checking back to see if you post it later on. :o)

Such a pretty page! Such a sweet baby!

THOSE ROSES!!! I am back for my second visit. The first one involved soaking up the images and the words! LOVE THIS!

Julia said...

This is beautiful Sian and such a great page recipe. I too had a little baby. My now gangly long legged nearly as tall as me 17 yr old daughter was only 4lb 2 when born. She panicked us all a bit at the start but all is good now :)

Well, Rachel was 5lb 10oz when she was born and you look smaller than that so I'm going with 5lb 2oz.

Barbara Eads said...

You did get on splendidly!! My guess would be 5 lbs. 6 oz. I have no idea what that is in UK weight!! Would it be kilos?

Such a pretty page - perfect for a photo of you. Those pink cabbage roses are a must in my stash. I guess you weighed tons in the love & joy your brought to the world of your family.

Karen said...

This is one of my favorite pages ever! I love the colors, all the embellishments, and that fabulous photo!

Love this layout of yours!
How precious!!
My first born was 11 pounds and she looked double your size so I would also guess around 5 something?

Oh, what a lovely baby picture! So tiny, too. :) Robbie was tiny when he was born - less than 5 pounds!

alexa said...

Such a very pretty page, with that lovely floral pink ... And aren't you just lovely? As to your weight? Hmm, mine were 7 and 8 lbs so I am guessing about five and a quarter.
