I have started this blog to help me get my craft projects out for everyone to see. My crafts are my therapy. I find peace in creating special ideas for friends and family. This is a new adventure for me and I plan on enjoying the ride

Baby Shower Gift

I've been busy make baby shower gifts for the last couple of weeks.  Here is the gift I made for a dear friend of our family.  Lauren is like a little sister to me.  I wanted to do something different so I got my creative cap on and here is what came from all that thinking..LOL!  I orginally had seen lollipops made out of the receiving blankets, but I decided to used them as a center in a flower and from that idea came this bouquet, the smaller flowers are baby washcloths.  Second part of the gift is a baby wipe case.  Lauren and Blake are sports fanatics and really like baseball so I used that theme on the case.  I covered it in fabric and added Maya Road letters and cut the player from vinyl using my Cricut.  I really like how this came out.  I followed everything up with a card and gift bag.  I really like the tag made from a craft envelope from Maya Road.  I added some fun embellishments on the bag like rosettes, ribbon, and metal.  I'm proud of this project and hope she likes everything.  Lauren is going to make a wonderful mom and I'm so happy for her.
