I help on the shower planning committee for our church. And we had a baby shower to host. One minor problem.....we have no funds. Our church has been cutting back in some areas of our expenses due to the economy. So this got my creative juices flowing. I called the mama that we were hosting the shower for and asked her if she could email me some pictures of her sweet little baby boy. I then printed and cut the baby face into circles. I taped some scrap card stock in her nursery colors to the back of the picture and cut around it with pinking shears. Then used some wooden craft sticks and hot glued them to the the circles. Used some left over ribbon from another project and made a bow, hot glue again. Waaaa laaaa....Cupcake toppers.
This is William's baby blanket doubling as a table cloth. Some tea lights and silver letters I had from home. The picture is also emailed from the mama, printed off on our printer, & taped to some card stock I had from another project and the frame I had at home. How fun to try to do the decorations from things you have already and have them turn out better than you thought.
I felt so bad I asked to hold her baby Hudson and he started crying from the moment I held him. At the time of this picture his grandma was still walking him in the halls trying to settle him down. So sorry Amber.
Here is Amber finally getting that cute little Hudson calmed down after I made him so mad. The shower was fun, and I was glad for the opportunity to get to know Amber a little better.
