The Big Reveal...

Well, actually... it's 3 big reveals! The first is the Wicked Princesses Card Kit Gallery Reveal, the second is the reveal of my giveaway winner, and the third is the reveal of my bub's first pics!!!

Today is Gallery Reveal day over at the Wicked Princesses blog!!! Follow the link to see inspiring work by Krissy and Tanya using March's Card Kit. Their work rocks!!! My work is yet to go up on the blog but I have uploaded two of my four cards to the gallery. Here they are;






























The remaining two cards will remain a secret until the 27th March, when I will be hosting this month's online class.

If you would like to be a part of the class, all you need to do is buy the March Card Kit, then log into the online class section of the blog on using the log-in details provided. It should be lots of fun!!!

Now, for the moment I'm sure you have all been waiting for... the announcement of the winner of my giveaway... I entered the numbers 1 through to 10 into Random.Org's Integer Generator, and here's what came up...

Here are your random numbers:

The seventh person to post a comment below was Tanya! Congratulations Tanya! Please email me with your address and I will pop your stamp into the mail right away!!!

Lastly, I would like to share my last and most exciting reveal... the first ultrasound pics of my bub-to-be!!! These photos were taken as part of my 12 week NT scan on the 10th March. I won't bore you with all 45 of them, but instead just a few of my favourites...

Bub's profile;














Close-up of Bub's profile;














Bub's face (look's like something from outer-space!);














Bub's spine;














And, last of all, is my absolute favourite... bub's foot! There is something about baby feet that make me all mushy and squishy!!! They are too cute!














The first question everyone has been asking is, "Did you find out the sex?" Besides the fact I reckon it's probably too early to tell, we didn't ask so we don't know. My partner really wants to find out but I think I'd like to keep it a 'surprise'. Aside from clothes, there is nothing I really need to buy that is sex-specific so I don't see the point. I think it might be kinda fun having to wait and wonder for the next 6 months!!!

I'd love to know whether or not you chose to find out the sex of your children before they were born, and for what reasons you made that decision. Please leave a comment!!!

On a far less positive note, I have some news I feel I should share as I have already had a few emails regarding it... Today the 2009 DT at Scraptacular was announced via email... much to my surprise. As you probably know, a part of my prize for winning SYTYCS last year was that I was given a place on the DT. However, my name is not on the list, and I will not be a part of the team. I am upset, but that's life. I am really happy for the girls who have got this great opportunity to design for Scraptacular. All the best Catherine, Debbie, Kassi, Lisa, and Kerry. I hope you have a great time... just wish I could have shared the opportunity with you!

Well, that's it for today! Do pop over to the WP blog and check out the great work by the DT, as well as the gallery which is filling fast with Card Sketch Competition entries! Great work ladies!!!

Hi Chloe,

Congrats on bub :) Loving the ultra sound pics. Wishing you all the best for a wonderful easy pregnancy.
I am sure it won't be long until you are snapped up by another scrapping shop, your work is beautiful - loved seeing your LO's in the SYTYCS comp. As others before me have said 'their loss'.

Kim.

Chook glad the pregnancy is going well :) And as for Scraptac.. blessing in disguise chook, you're too good for them, and I know you know that ;)

Take care of you :)

Tanya said...

oh wow, how cute is the bub's foot? I found out the sex of my baby at the 20 week scan! I couldn't stand waiting till the birth! It is still a surprise any time you find out :) SO good to hear everything is going well though. Oh I am so clucky!

About the Scraptacular DT - don't let that dishearten you! That's totally their loss Chloe :) (but did you ask them about it, I mean if it was part of your prize and all....?)

Kirsty said...

Ugh...I had been wondering what was happening with the Scraptac DT. I wouldn't let it bother you, from what I have heard you might be better off not involved.
LOVE the scan pics! how cute! We found out the sex with the girls, but with Sam he wouldn't stay still long enough LOL. I wanted to find out with the girls as I was SO scared and nervous (having them so close together was terrifying) and knowing the sex helped me 'know' them before they were born:)

And as the other girls have already said their loss and you are better off not being there, with the way she treats people!!
