Guess the baby weight blog candy

Oooh this was a tough one for me. Cupcake Craft Challenge this week is beach themed. Eventually I came up with this:

Border punch, dimension sticker

I rummaged through my stash for beach themed stuff and found I had no beachy stamps and I didn't fancy the digi images I had today. I have a drawer full of bits and bobs from a holiday nearly two years ago waiting patiently to be put in a scrapbook and found some dimensional stickers and tags. So I cropped the tag down and popped the flip flops on. Then the umming and aaahing commenced as I couldn't decide what to do next. So I didn't.

We went to get Blake weighed then picked Mum up from the airport and then I finished the card with my new Fiskars sunshine border punch.

So, I am offering up some mystery blog candy to the person who guesses correctly or closest to Blake's weight today!!! His birth weight was 9lbs 9ozs and he'll be four weeks old tomorrow.

Please leave me a comment and have a guess at his weight in pounds and ounces only and I'll reveal the winner and the candy along with his weight tomorrow after 8pm. I'm the least technical person I know so if one or more of you guesses right or close, I'll pop the names in hat and get my Mum to draw the winner out!!



  1. Hi Victoria fantastic card, love the flip flops and the little beach scene in the background...gorgeous border punch too one of my fav's. So pleased you could join us at Cupcake this week :) Donna x

  4. Great card, lovely colours, brilliant idea for the flip flops !
    Well, I've got to have a go at Blake's weight, I really haven't got a clue what weight babies put on in their first few weeks so don't be offended if I'm miles out ! Here goes.....10lb 10oz ! Sue x

  5. Lovely card and my guess is 12lb 1oz

  6. Clever card Victoria... I like the borders used as sea and sand!
    Now as to young BLAKE I think I'll go with 10lbs 11oz as no-one else has guessed that weight yet! I think that Donna must think you're feeding him on steak & chips!

  7. This card definitely makes you think of the beach, clever idea. Now for the Blake's weight, I'm useless at this, but I'm going to go for 10lbs 1oz.
