It's a Baby Shower!!!

This post is way overdue, but I needed to find the time to upload everything!!  Last month, a few neighborhood ladies threw another neighbor, Christine, a Baby Shower.  She's due ANY DAY!!

I offered to make the invitations for the shower and then we made some shower gifts and tags for the event.   So sit back......there's a lot to show!!

Here's the outside of the invitation - kept pretty simple as I had to make 30 of them.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing die, Studio G onside stamp and PTI sentiment.  Christine is having a boy - so all is blue!
 Inside I wrote up the details in Word and then layered it (easy!)

Here's the wonderful diaper cake Dolores, who hosted, made for the baby

And here's the terrific poem she created and had me craft up

Dolores and I covered some Hersey bars for shower gifts for the attendees

And this was a fun idea one of the ladies had. We each had to bring a baby boy outfit.  (Christine has two girls already) and we hung the outfits on a clothesline inside.  We also all contributed and got her a bunch of toys geared for boys (you can see them under the line)

This is not a great picture - but look at Christine's face (gal with purse). I'd say she was surprised!!

Here's a yummy cake Marion made

Mama-to-be Christine:

And here's a picture of the set of Thank You cards I gave Christine at the shower too:

Finally, here's a custom made Onsie - for dad-to-be Chris, who is running for Congress!

It was a fun shower and Christine had a really great time.  We're looking forward for Baby Boy to get into this world!!!

Thanks for your visit!

How sweet and thoughtful of you to make those lovely cards. Such posh looking cards, I am coming to believe that clean and simple is classy. The nappy cake is so cute and the cake as well. The thank you cards are lovely as well. My, my, you sure have been busy.

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun! I love all the things you made, that card is adorable. That embossing folder has jumped into my card a couple of times, but I couldn't think of how I would use it so I put it back. I think I will keep it the next time. Thanks for the inspiration!
