Hello everyone and welcome! Thanks for stopping by today. I'm happy to report that Hurricane Isaac has bypassed us completely! We had a few minor sprinkles and a bit of a breeze - nothing else, thankfully. Please continue to pray for those who have been hit by this storm.
Well, we finally had the baby shower for Miss Addison Reece and I can share with you the goodies I made! Her parents are going to be calling her "Addie Reece"....isn't that cute? And, her mommy is decorating her room in pink and orange with cute, girly safari animals. So, here's the banner I came up with....
(click on photo to enlarge)
I know the picture isn't great - it's really a challenge to get a decent photo of a full banner.
* I used the Cricut cart "Birthday Bash", cutting the orange and pink layers at 6.75 inches.
* The pink layer is embossed with the "Bit of Paisley" embossing folder
* The white doily is from "Elegant Edges" cut at 5.5 inches
* Letters are from "Kate's ABCs", cut at 4 inches
* The zebra is from "Create A Critter" and is cut at 4 inches.
I also made these cute little baby shoe favor boxes for Addie Reece....
These are from the Silhouette Online Store. I think they turned out really cute, but they were kind of time consuming. After cutting out about 60 of them, I inked up the edges, laced them with ribbon, assembled and filled with mints.
I don't have the photo yet, but we placed the shoes around the flower arrangement on the food table and it really was adorable, if I do say so myself! Hope to have a photo to share with you soon.
Addie Reece is due to join her sweet family in about 3 weeks and I look forward to meeting her! And, now I'm off to work on a birthday card for a very special little boy. My sweet grandson, Brayden is celebrating his very first birthday today! We will be heading to his birthday party in a few days and I've got to get busy! Thanks again for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day!
Until next time,
