"Throwback Thursday" Challenge #8 with Emma @ My Creative Time

Hi Everyone!
It's that time again for Throwback Thurday at Emma's My Creative Time!  Don't forget that Saturday is The 15 Days of Christmas Blog Hop starting at Kinder StampO!  I will be giving away blog candy too!

Emma's challenge was to use Celebration cartridge or older one!  I didn't have Celebration, so I used Accent Essentials and Don about a throwback!  It also had to be a birthday theme project.  I hope you enjoy!

Baby Shower Invitation & Diaper Cake

**** In celebration of 100+ followers, I'm giving away BLOG CANDY! So click here and leave a comment to be entered! I will be drawing a winner on July 15th! ****


I hope you're enjoying your Saturday!  I've got alot to do today...get ready for a baby shower, about 60 people!  I just wanted to do a quick post of what was made for it...

the invitations, recipe:
Cricut Cartridge: Create a Critter
Paper: Stampin Up
Ribbon: Papertrey Ink, Michaels
Circle Punch: Creative Memories

diaper cake,  I saw this on someone's blog, unfortunately I don't remember who's it was.  She had used disposable diapers, I switched mine to cloth.  This diaper cake is a dual purpose's a centerpiece and a "guess how many items in the cake" game.  I've hidden items in the cake, socks, an outfit, and onsies.  Once the party is over, the mommy to be, has a gift too!  She'll also be surprised to see what's in it!

Advise card box...each side has a circle with an animal on it, like the invitations.

I made a pennant banner, but was unable to take a picture of it....basically each pennant had a letter ~ 

then I used each of the animals as before for the begining, end and in between each name.  I had added a scallop trim at the top and strung it with ribbon.  If I'm able, I'll try to take a picture at the shower.
