Baby Shower Decorations

Created these items for my daughter's upcoming Baby Shower, I love the way they turned out. Although I have to say right now I have a LOVE/HATE relationship going on with Vinyl!! But I do like the way they turned out and hope she will.

I used my Fairy Cut Software for the Curlz font which my daughter loves.

Monogrammed Piggy Bank

Found these little frames at M's and knew what I wanted to do with them. Love the little black bow on the frames!

Name Plate, this is where my love/hate relationship came in!!! But I LOVE IT!

I am working on a banner, circle mobile, diaper cake, and tin cans this weekend. Once I am done I will share pictures of it all put together.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a Blessed Day!

My Cricut Craft Room "Cancer Support" Blog Hop 7-16 thru 7-17

Welcome to this weekend's Cancer Support Blog Hop that Erica over at is hosting! If you did not start at her site please head over there now. You should have come from Emily's blog if you are on the right track. For this blog hop I created a "Hope" Wordbook for a very dear friend, loved the way it turned out!

Cricut Cartridges Used: George and Basic Shapes, Don Juan, Indie Art, Stand and Salute, Home Accents, and Serenade

The paper I used was some left over glitter white and pink paper from DCWV, breast cancer paper was some I had left over, I believe it is from Karen Foster. Used some small embellishments I had sitting around.

Word book squares and letters were cut out at 6.41 inches high. Once I had all the words cut out, I adhered the paper to it, added the embellsihments, VOILA! It doesn't take that long to create one of these. Hope you enjoyed my creation today, I know the lady receiving it will love it.

Thanks for stopping by today, I love to read your comments and

would love to have you become a follower if you would like.

Now you are headed over to Heather's blog,

Hope you all are having a GREAT weekend! Charlotte
