A baby on the way altered cross stitching hoop

Hello my dear crafty friends!
It's Irit here from Irit Shalom's  Designs and today I am going to share some lovely altered inspiration .
I love to alter things and those cross stitching hoops are just the best one to alter.
So I made a cute Baby on the Way altered hoop using Papericious new, just released Mom to Be collection, Papericious laces, chipboards, sequins and jute cord with just a small add- ons of dies and paint.

This hoop is 10 1/2'' in diameter and this is one of the biggest hoops on the market and can be a nice display for Baby Shower party or as a decoration on the wall.
The reason I stacked to  Baby Boy colors is that I  have a very new grandson who was just born last week and everything I craft  right now is in those boy colors.
 I am really sorry that I got this fantastic Mom to Be collection after my daughter's Baby Shower, but I hope that we will have more babies in the family and I will use it for another party decoration.

This the whole project here:

 And the side view of this project:

Also this is not my tutorial day here on Papericious blog, so here are just a few steps I made to create this project:

First I hand cut the circle of patterned cardstock and inserted it into the hoop.
Then I painted the hoop with blue acrylic paint.
Nest I cut Papericious lace into halves and glued it around the hoop.
The main image was  hand cut three times and I made the 3d image with foam glue.

All chipboard pieces were painted with the same acrylic paint as the hoop.

Paper  images were hand cut and added to the project:

Each an every paper cut was inked around the edges  for the interest.All die cuts were made from the same collection patterned paper with inked edges as shown:
