Arty Farty Cherish Cot

As I've had a little time off school this week I thought I'd better start on the numerous things I have to make.  This is the first cot out of the four/five I have to make for the first baby due in April.  I have until June and August for the rest!  The parents know it will be a boy, in fact out of the five, two know the sex of the baby - I liked to wait for the suprise personally especially as they are first babies!  Anyway this is a blue cot - I used my Arty Farty template (easy to make but a the mobile is a little fiddly).  I used Papermania Rose Garden paper as it's a pretty blue and rose pattern (you don't say, lol).  I've added some beads to the front side and only used acetate for the front of the box to save using all my stash!   It looks plain now but I'll add a name plate to the end of the cot, a label and some ribbon on the box when the baby arrives.
