The Play Date Cafe Challenge #120

Sounds like something for my little Sophie doesn't it? Guess what? It's not, it's for me! I found this blog while surfing the web and the inspiration picture looked so cool I had to try it. The colors they've chosen are so HOT right now for spring. I've seen them everywhere. This is the first challenge I've ever entered so I'm super excited. I love the way my card turned out too...these are not colors I would normally choose to go together but I love the way they do.

You can play along too...just visit The Play Date Cafe. A new challenge is announced every Thursday! Here is the inspiration...

The colors are described as Baby Blue, Orangesicle and Basil.

Here is what I came up with...

Paper: Recollections Cardstock, Anna Griffin, SEI, DCWV Stamps: Stampin' Up Ink: Studio G Ribbon: Stampin' Up Rhinestones: Me and My Big Ideas Adhesive: Scotch ATG

Moroccan Themed Baby Shower Banners

Hello! I recently made these mini 3x3 banners for a customer who is having a moroccan themed baby shower. I think they are fabulous! I love the way they turned out and love that I can share them with you.
I made 4 banners all 3x3 with elephants each end. The banners read "Welcome", "Gifts", "Thanks" and "It's A Girl". My favorite part of the banners are the elephants. I think they are adorable!
Please excuse the really bad banner photo - I'm still trying to find the right place to take my banner pictures. I've tried on our living room wall but it's beige and the lighting is terrible. I've also tried our fireplace mantle but the flagstone underneath is SO dirty from use it distracts from the banner. For now it's outside and that's not so pretty either.

Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world. I'm very excited to start sharing with you. What am I going to be sharing you ask? Well....I'm thinking I will share with you some of my crafty creations, how to's, likes and recipes. We'll see how this goes...LOL! A little about me to start off with. I am a stay at home mom who loves to create pretty things, cook and bake. I have a loving husband who works extra hard so I can stay home with my amazing Sophie who is 2 1/2. We also have 2 crazy dogs, Diego and Dillon, both about 7 years old. I hope I can provide you with some laughs and smiles. Thanks for stopping by!
