A New Little Princess!

The past few weeks have been crazy busy to say the least. Our youngest daughter and her husband will be blessing us with a "New Little Princess" in May! We are over the moon that we are adding a granddaughter to our circle of grandchildren which now has two grandsons!

This weekend is the baby shower and I have been working on invitations, favors, centerpieces and other decorations. It will all come together with our "A New Little Princess Is On The Way" theme and be over before we know it!

Here are some of the creations for the shower!

The invitations! I used my Sizzix Scalloped Bigz Die and Spellbinder Labels 10 die.

This diaper cake CASTLE turned out awesome! I am so excited about it. The center of the castle is a square basket filled with baby supplies...rattles, thermometer, bibs, baby wipes, etc. I used some of my scrappy supplies on it too...Dew Drops, cardstock, inks, butterflies and ribbon. The towers are plastic baby bottles filled with shredded pearlescent grass. The flags are made from MME Market Street Princess line of patterned papers. This castle is for the "Mommy" table! The table centerpieces are little trees decorated with rocking horses, flowers, baby bottles, and diaper pins. The deer on either side are Beany Babies, Honey and Nutmeg. These were perfect and went with the nursery Woodland theme. The cardboard cake plates are covered with MME Stella Rose papers. Thanks, Natalie for helping me out so quickly!

The purse favors were made with a Sizzix Bigz Purse die cut and embossed with Crafts Too Daisy Embossing Folder. Inside the purse is a peppermint patty and if you are lucky, a heart sticker, naming you a door prize winner! I used jewels to embellish along with plastic princess wands.

I altered this tin to use along with our diaper "Wishing Well". The guests will be bringing a package of diapers to build a wishing well for baby Caraline. They will write their wishes for her on cards that will be saved in this trinket box!

I also altered this little notebook so we could keep track of gifts received. The tag on the front will have the information about the shower on it.

And last, the gift card that goes with the many gifts that I will shower our granddaughter with. I used the March 15th Card Sketch from My Sketch World! Thanks, Lucy!

I will be sharing lots of photos next week when the shower is over and I have recovered!!!
