Baby Shower Stuff

Baby Shower For Liz and Norah

 Invitation that was sent out
 Center piece that comes out - had to show the full elephant
Couldn't leave off the dots! These were so fun to add on to the back
and added just that little bit of oomph needed to complete the invitation.

 At the shower Derek, Liz's husband surprised Liz with her best friend Melody
who flew in from Oregon for the weekend
It was a wonderful surprise!

Cupcake toppers I made for the cupcakes
I was really bad at taking pictures at the shower.
There were adorable cupcakes there with these toppers in them
We just didn't get s single picture of them.



Had to add in a handmade card from our dear friend Hanna as she went with our giraffe theme.
Love this card Hanna...
So glad Hanna was able to attend the party.

 The card I made for Liz I knew had to be a special surprise card
as she is always doing my card classes. I had seen one like this online so I figured I could do it.
I loved that I was able to capture her face in the picture as my camera had acted up all day.

 So here is the card closed .. Liz said card??? Mom that's not a card...

 Here is a top view of the card

Here is the side view of the card

Funny thing on this card is I didn't have any wire at the house. In my purge last year I must had gotten rid of it so I was not sure what I was going to do about the boingy flowers. And it just isn't the card I wanted without them soooo. When Liz got up I asked her if she could think of anything in the house that had wire in it I could use for a card that was kind of springy. She instantly thought of a ball point pen. My smarty girl... Said she gets bored in class and takes pens apart all the time and there is a spring inside that is well a spring. Would that work. So she took one apart and sure enough 1 spring would do 2 flowers. So when she went downstairs to get ready for the shower I cut it in 1/2 and hot glued the flowers to the end of the spring added hot glue to the other end of the spring added it to the card and closed it back up.  (I used springs from 2 pens to add 3 flowers)
So when in doubt of a needed item for your card ask a college student!

Coming soon the Thank you card we just made.....
