Baby shower gifts and decorations

     Well, as I have posted in previous posts, I have a wonderful grandson on the way named Josiah(can't wait til he arrives :) and have been crafting items for the shower. Here are the centerpieces for the tables. I am going to add more pictures after I set up for the shower on Sunday.That way everyone can see how they look on the tables.Seven size 4 diapers were used in each mini diaper cake.The shredded paper is from The local Dollar Tree and the palms are from Michaels.

     Also, I had visited over at Alex's blog, You Had Me At Craft, and seen this wonderful Palm tree diaper cake. I done my own little tweeks to it and here is what I came up with. Thank you Alex!!!! I used a carpet tube for the trunk of the tree and made two circles out of cardboard to form the base to put the diapers around.The stones are 4 bags from the Dollar Tree and I just used constructions paper for the bark and leaves. The monkeys are from Michaels. Approx. 104 size 4 diapers were used.

     I also made a "six pack of bottles" for the shower as a gift. They turned out super cute, I think.I have been having a ball making all the things for the shower.I wish I had more time in my day to do more crafting.Well, if nothing else, I will have plenty of time when I retire in 40- 50 yrs from now.LOL

                       Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my creations.Happy crafting!!!!
