Happy 33rd Birthday Darling Daughter

Every year on our annual camping trip we celebrate our daughters' birthday! This year is no exception except that our son and his family won't be there since our grandson is due in a few weeks. She was born at 8:20am on the 28th and I wake her up at that time on that day every year! We replay the 12-hour labor (I really should keep her up from 9pm on!!) and have cupcakes after breakfast! Here is her special card. With flowers and ribbons in some of her favorite colors.

I wanted to coordinate cards for our daughter, daughter-in-law, my mom and mother-in-law. I chose the colors of lime, purple and pale yellow. I knew I wanted ladies and flowers and bows. The prego girl is from New Arrival. One of my original Cricut 7 years old! The skinny mini is from Forever Young and the Cameos are from Heritage. The flowers are from MyCreativeTime Stitched Daisy and Scalloped and Stitched Circle. The sentiment is from MyCreativeTime All Around Everything and the tulip is from All Around Everything Accessories.

A Little Birdie Told Me

I am the Featured Designer over at Action Wobbles today. I am working extra hours this week and had a busy weekend. Well here you go!! Everybody is lovin' the Angry Birds. I had bought our grandson some Fruit Snacks for his lunch snack and the boxes had these great characters. ALREADY ON CHIPBOARD!!! I carefully cut them out and put them on a wobble. Created a background using paper and making a little varsity stripe to coordinate. The stamp was from the $1 bin at Michaels a couple years ago. Great upcycle!!! Can be used for just about anything.

Lets Hear it for the Boy!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!

My new grandson that is! Today is his baby shower and we will be showering my daughter-in-law for sure. I have the bassinet that we bought for our first grandson and hoped to pass down for all our grandchildren. it will be Isaac's turn. I filled it with handmade goodies. Then she is having a diaper raffle at the shower where if you bring a box of diapers, you get a raffle ticket for a little prize. I made a diaper trike for that part! So here you go! Picture heavy!!!

Crochetted Blanket and hats. Summer baby yes but with everyone's A/C blasting, these will come in handy!

Bouquet of roses made of washcloths

Goodies in the bassinette -  don't you love the mustache paci??
And the Cowboy Bib???
Lots of fun handmade goodies in there.

Diaper Trike with soft cushy puppy

Shower Banner - in case you missed it

Large Framed Name with Pixar Character Stickers

And a special surprise...I will show another time. My Nana has passed and will not meet Isaac for awhile, but 3 years ago when my brothers were having their babies, she kept knitting little blankets. LOTS OF LITTLE BLANKETS. My mom put some aside and is giving Isaac some made by is Grand Nana when she was 103! I know I cried when I saw this!

Happy NSD!!
