Babies are so fun! And crafting is even more fun!

My cousin in law twice removed, or however that works - is having a sweet baby girl in about 7 weeks. We're giving her baby shower this Sunday and I made a diaper cake and banner for the Cutie Pie. She doesn't have a name yet so I stuck with the last name as a monogram and then CUTIE PIE for the banner. I hope Jennifer will like it and be able to use it in the nursery!! It was super fun to make. Now, my aunt in law is having another girl (this will be number 5 bless her heart) and I'm thinking about making another diaper cake for her. Her nursery theme is going to be Raggedy Ann and Andy and sort of that vintage look - so I'm not sure I'll have paper that will work, but here's hoping!!

Check it out:

And here's a sideways close up!

And I took these before the banner was strung together - not sure why but I did :)

The C - U - T

The I - E and an empty one between CUTIE and PIE

And that's the PIE!!

I wish I could make some more stuff but have no clue what else to do! I think I'll have to wait on the babies name to do anything else. I wanted to do a sign for the hospital room but need a baby name for that!

I used the Accucut to cut my pennants and then a few scalloped borders and scallops circles. I also used the lovely Virginia's butterfly punch and my Slice. It was really a fun project once I got over the 'how in the heck do I make a diaper cake' and after realizing that it really couldn't be done with just two hands (at least not my two hands) so thanks to Carol for lending a 'hand' literally!!

And one last photo - this was the last Friday night at Scrap Etc. A few of us decided at the last minute to ditch the hubs and kids and just hang out for a little while. It was great to have one last night of fun with the scrappy girls!! I still can't believe the store isn't open, but we'll survive!! I know it!!

Okay - i'm outta here. Lots of catching up to do. Have to finish unpacking from the long weekend away. Pictures of follow - got some great shots on the beach of Mr. Cole - the Beach News Reporter!!

Oh I love your diaper cake! Very cute! And how precious is Virginia? If I thought I could look that good pregnant, I might consider it.
