I chose babies as my theme for the day. One of the teachers at the school that my children attend is having a baby and I volunteered to help with the baby shower! This has been lots of fun to put together. The mommy to be has chosen a different set of colors for her daughter's room. They are using gray on the walls and the bedding is being made out of several different patterns of material. I got a hold of the fabric and color coordinated as best I could to Stampin' Up! colors. The colors are Very Vanilla, Basic Gray, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay (retired color) and Rich Razzleberry. The main fabric has flowers and butterflies in it and it has a vintage feel to it. I really wanted to work with what mom has picked out so those are the colors that I pulled out and started to create with! What a fun challenge this turned out to be.

My first project is the invitation! I love the way the onesie cards look so that's what I decided to create. Here's my card:

Only 15 more to go!
Then I created a favor to give out at the shower. When I showed it to my husband, he didn't know what it was but I'm guess you will all figure it out! Once I told him, then he got it but he really did NOT see it! My girls did but he didn't. MEN! Anyway, here's my favor.

Yep, that's a diaper! Silly man! I have 5 Hershey's nugget wrapped with DSP in a little baggie in the diaper. I only need 28 more of these! Anyone want to come and help? Always willing to stamp with someone! I'll even pay you in CHOCOLATE!

Last I really wanted to make a diaper cake. I have seen them all over the Internet but never had a reason to create one. I bought a package of diapers and rolled them while at school doing my study hall supervision job. Boy were the 7th graders confused when I walked in with a box of diapers! Got them all rolled and then came home and put together my cake!

I will post instructions and recipes on everything that I made on Monday or Tuesday. The baby shower isn't until the end of April so I'm hoping to make a banner and some Thank you cards to go with these goodies. Stay  tuned to see how far I make it!

Happy Stampin'!
