Baby Shower Decorations

My little brother's girlfriend is having a baby and I made almost everything for the shower... decorations.. I am posting pics for all to see :)
 This is a close up of the diaper baby that I made. He was super easy and didnt take long at all. I love making these little babies they are super fun !
This is of his whole body. Isnt he adorable?!

This is one of many flower arrangements that I made to decorate around tables. I made the flowers out of crepe party streamers, leaves, floral tape and floral picks. I arranged them in an ivy bowl with blue basket filler inside and added a Tulle bow to make it pop :)

This diaper cake i made in about 2 hours I put the layers together using baby lotion and baby wash as the cores to make them stable then added fabric around it to give it a pop of color. I made tulle pom poms around the tops of the layers to make it fluffy then added an adorable monkey to the top which is a Ty Beanie Boo. Closeup is below. I loved this monkey so much I bought one for myself haha!
He looks a little bashful doesnt he?

I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did creating all of it. I will post more pics of other decorations and things as I go through them to see what all i have done. Til Next time!

Freedom Isn't Free

I am entering this card  into Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday Challenge - Freedom Isn't Free.
The background paper I used I got from Ac Moore in their single paper section. I cut the stars and the words out using the "Stand and Salute" cartridge. The stamps are K Andrew Designs Stamps
Thank You to Kathy who allowed me to use her stamps to try them out! And I LOVE THEM! They stamp so easily and nicely and they clean so much easier than others :) I know I will be buying some soon!

This week I seem to be going with simple.
I loved the paper and wanted to make a card with it and this sorta just jumped into my head and i put it down on paper. Again.. and nothing spectacular but I enjoyed making it :)
Also This one will also be going to Operation Write Home. 

A simple Thank You

I made just a simple thank you card using blues and silvers. I
just used some stick on stars, blue paper and used the cricut to cut out the word "thanks" 
 Nothing over the top but I like it :)
This card will be going to Operation Write Home as soon as I get a few more cards made.

Light Bulb Ornament

I decided to change it up a little and show you another craft I am working on.. I am making Light Bulb ornaments. They are super easy and there are so many possibilities to create with them. You just use a regular light bulb.. prime it .. and paint it to your liking and then you add a cute little hat (i used fleece) and string and you are done. I have made quite a few now and everyone loves them! :)
