You stole my heart

When I saw this adorable Mother and baby Raccoon shape from the Cottage Cutz Camping release, I knew I had to have it!! Raccoons have always been my favorite animal ever since I was little. I have collected raccoons of every shape and size for years so of course it was only natural to add this Raccoon Die to my collection!

I picked up this Bo Bunny paper over the weekend for the same reason - I can't resist the raccoons! This is actually supposed to be a Valentines line but I thought it would be fun to use for sweet baby pictures. I used several old heart punches to create my different shapes hearts.
The Raccoons were so easy to cut out and piece together thanks to the handy cheat sheet included with the die. I simply ran the die through my machine three times with each different color of brown I had picked out to use. All I had to do then, was pull each piece as I needed it until I had two raccoons pieced and ready to go!

Don't forget about our Guest Designer Contest going on right now!! You have until Friday January 22nd to get in your entry. Click here for more details :)
