Baby Shower - Baby Girl Nautical

Hello Delightful friends and family,
Finally getting all my pictures cropped and ready to post to share the baby shower for Ashlee the mommy to be.  Here momma goes to our church and I said I would help host it at the church.  The theme wasn't an easy one, Ashlee wanted lighthouses first and I said, I don't think that would be an easy "baby" theme (right???)  so she changed it to a nautical theme.  Still not the easiest for a baby girl theme but we managed  pulled it off.
I used my Cricut to design the onesies and little dress with bloomers (New Arrival Cricut and Celebration cartridges)
 Here is a fun centerpiece top.  We had some leftover diapers from the diaper cake that we wrapped with ribbon and set the candy dish on top.  I found a fun Lawn Fawn Tutorial  HERE that I used to fold the boats (Bella Blvd paper).  I designed the labels to go on the mini chocolates. We had six of these on the tables.  Tickled Pink is a Unity Stamp and I used an EK Success punch to make the flag.  Washi tape was wrapped around a toothpick and then adhered to the sail with Zots.

 Guess how many M&M's... The sailboat was a scrap of leftover 12x12 paper and I'm not sure what company but I fussy cut the sailboat and then punched the waves from an EK Success border punch.  I designed the invitations, drawing tickets and the Blessing and Advice card for everyone to fill out which I am making into a book for Ashlee.

 Drawing ticket for those bringing packages of diapers.  Baby girl Peyton is set for quite a few months in diapers!! Yay!!

 Everyone received a thank you gift and I bought the little treat bag from Taylored Expressions (Doodlebug), I stamped thank you (Avery Elle stamp) and dyed the seam binding to match the aqua color using Distress Inks and Dylusions Ink Spray (Ranger). 

Here is the fun diaper cake we made. 

Aren't those little shoes just the cutest!

Mommy-to-be Ashlee.

  I took a quick picture of some of the table goodies.  I still had to finish making the punch and get the finger foods out.  The baby blocks were cut out using New Arrival Cricut Cartridge.

Ashlee and her mom, Angela.  Ashlee is due June 15th and we cannot wait to meet baby girl Peyton!

Hope this gives you some ideas for your next baby shower!  

Thanks for visiting and I'll have two mini albums to share real soon!  I just finished them tonight and need to take some photos tomorrow.

Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk--not as unwise people but as wise.  Ephesians 5:15

Congrats! - WAW #132

Hello Delightful friends and family!
This card was made for my daughter and son-in-law for their anniversary last month.  I think it could be used for Valentines or a wedding card, too.  It's very simple and I love the bold red on the white base.  The stamp is from Avery Elle and the hearts are Sizzix Movers and Shapers mini hearts.  I used an embossing folder (Divine Swirls - Provocraft) on the larger heart, I'm not sure what paper I've used but the red/white dotted strip is washi tape.  The border punch is EK Success.  I've used Memento ink for the sentiment (Love Letters red)

I will be sharing this card at:
Word Art Wednesday #132 - Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting!

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.  Romans 8:28

Happy Birthday - better late than never!

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Long time no post, I can't tell you how hectic it's been here and I've had no energy to be on the computer to write up a blog post.  Now that the baby shower I hosted is over and preparing to speak at a Mother - Daughter Tea this past Saturday is over, I think I might be able to get those creative juices flowing again and have a bit of energy to visit and be active on my blog!  I have another project I'm working on for my niece that I really need to get busy on, her baby shower is at the end of the month!
I  have a card to share that I made last month. Here is the picture of my husband's birthday card.  I've used a Sizzix Mover and Shaper die for the focal point and the happy birthday is a Taylored Expressions stamp.

I'm sharing this card at:
