Hello and happy Saturday! I hope you all had a good day whether out in the sun or inside because of the cold. Can you believe we actually got some hail that could be mistaken for snow here in sunny California? Yup, but then the weather turned out beautiful. I'm glad, because today was my beautiful friend's diaper shower. Yes, not baby, but diapers.. hahaha.. So the main presents were the diapers and wipes, and anything else was a bonus. We were very lucky that the weather cooperated and the sun was shining after the major shower we had all day yesterday.
I made some table tent decorations and my very first flag banner for the occasion. I actually made the banner because I had gone to Party City and the Dollar Tree stores and thought the ones there were so cheezy looking. Plus, I wanted the decorations to match. I used my Cricut to make the flags, you can't see the brown border around the pink polka dot paper, but it's there. It's the same kind of cs that I used to make the table tents.
I had so much fun making each and everyone one of the table tents and especially love the banner I made. I used the ever adorable HG Snuggle from The Greeting Farm as the main focus for all the projects. The sentiments on the banners are from Hero Arts and TGF. HG Snuggle reminded me of the soon-to-be parent's daughter. HG Snuggle is definitely one of my absolute favorites. Just love her serene expression. Colored her up as a light brown-blondish little girl and as a brown haired little girl because the new baby could end up looking like her daddy, with light brown-blonde hair or like her dark haired HAPA mama. Their daughter, MG, is a sweetie with hair like her daddy. (In the picture above you can see MG sitting on her daddy's lap. Her mama is the one standing next to me. Also in the picture are my mama and our friend Janelle holding her dog, Ace.)
Being a new big sister I wanted to do something fun for MG. I found this adorable (fluffy & soooo soft) pink and white doggie with a purple bandana @ Target! SCORE!! I was @ Joann's and purchased a few photo memory buttons. I was stoked because an idea to make MG a special button because of her new role as a big sister came to mind. (Love it when that happens) I used the same stamp and colored her up as close to MG's hair color, which right now is more blonde than brown. She was really happy to get the doggie and when she gets older she might actually like the button. hahaha..
Ok my friends, I think I'm going to call it an early night. I've gotten about 7 hours sleep total for the past 3 days and need my energy for tomorrow's trek to the Anaheim stamp convention. Sending wishes for a great Sunday to all of you. Mahalo for stopping by!
