Baby Shower

Hello my crafty friends!  I know I haven't posted in a while and I apologize.  I feel like I've been running since the day after Thanksgiving!  Christmas was wonderful.  Two days after Christmas was my niece's birthday, then it was New Year's, and yesterday my sister-in-law and I had a baby shower for the same niece.  Whew!  I made these little favor bags to hand out.  The theme for the shower was zebra.  We found zebra cake plates, zebra napkins, zebra balloons, and zebra streamers.  The cake was zebra as well.  (Scroll down for a picture of the cake)

We found the zebra bags at Michaels.  The sentiment on the bag is from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Heartfelt Wishes."  I used a 2 inch scallop punch from EK Success, and a 1 3/4 scallop punch from Stampin' Up!  For the tin favor, I used a stamp I had found at Michaels.  The rattles came from Wilton.  I filled them with some pacifier candy.  Inside the little tin are some pearl Sixlets.  I made 20 of these bags, and 30 tins.

I made her a diaper cake, Onesies cupcakes, and washcloth bon bons.   I even made a baby shower word scramble with 25 words, and made tortilla roll-ups.  Now you can see why I have been so busy.  We had so much fun!  She received so many cute things.  I found some clothes with the zebra stripes with pink.  So cute!  I can't wait until baby Bella arrives!

I hope everyone's year has started out well.  By the way, this Friday starts another Cardz TV Design Team Challenge.  I can't wait!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!

Lots of Hugs,
(The Queen)

  4. Hi Laura,
    It's been a while. I too feel the same way, hit Thanksgiving running and haven't stop. My excuse it the puppy Santa brought :) He is a rambunctious little guy.
    Your niece is one lucky lady! You made such beautiful things for her baby shower - she must have been thrilled! Good luck with the birth of baby Bella.
    Great job on all the cute goodies you made - I love the zebra/pink combination.
