First the Shower

This is my friend Sarah. She is having a baby girl next month.

I was a hostess for Sarah's baby shower. I wanted to share with you some of the creations for the event. You already saw the May baskets and those were a hit. I wanted to show you the invitations too. I completely CASE'd (copied and stole everything) from Kendra Giles. She gave me permission though!

I used blush blossom and cream. I used the cuttlebug die, heartfelt thanks and a clear G studio stamp.

Okay, I also have to show you my cool watermelon creation. I wanted to make a baby carriage out of the watermelon and didn't think I'd really be able to do it but it turned out pretty well I think. I was proud of it. What do you think?

And finally, I wanted to give her some thank you notes and made these using the same paper I used for the May Baskets. They were a simple design I learned at my stampin' workshop. I used more of the G studio stamps for the thank you and the paper is from Daisy D's. I love party planning. Maybe I should look into it...hee hee.

I sponged some rose red onto white cardstock, cut the paper into 1.5 inch strips. Then on the center panel I labeled some unknown pink cardstock on barely banana and stamped the "Thank You" and rattles on top. I used the flower punch and a brad as well.
