Remember, this was the baby's theme.
Here are a few of the other things I made.
The crib with the bedding was set up in the living room for everyone to see. I made this simple little banner using the scallop and plain circle dies with the Big Shot. The letters were done with the Alphalicious cartridge on the Cricut.
They had a cute stuffed monkey sitting inside the crib. I made this frame/sign for the monkey to hold. The letters were done with the Alphalicious cartridge and the monkey was done with the New Arrival cartridge on the Cricut.
I made another banner for the mantle, same supplies, tools and cartridges as other.
I made a few monkey things to set around. This was one of the large monkey faces I made. It's hard to tell but this is 12 inches in diameter.
I took a stab at making my first diaper cake. I received one at one of my showers and I just loved it. I followed a combination of several online tutorials. I struggled with this because I thought it was plain but since the theme for the shower was quite simple I didn't want to go overboard with stuff. The band around each layer is a 2" wide grosgrain ribbon that is scallopped like ric rac layered with some of the Certainly Celery ribbon from the Sale A Bration bundle. I looked and looked for a plain brown stuffed monkey all over town and never found one so I settled for one made with the Cricut. I mounted him on a chop stick from Pei Wei
Here's the happy Mom To Be with the adorable cake.
Thanks for stopping by.........
ETA: I used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel cardstocks for the monkies. The favor boxes were done in Gable Green and the sheer brown ribbon is from JoAnn.
