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! ****

Hi!

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 item...it'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 ~ 

WELCOME NOAH JOHN
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.

Enjoy!

Love the invites. I want to use the invites as a template for invitations i need to do for a friends shower. her and her husband are using alligators and snakes for the babies room and this invite would work with their theme perfectly!!!!
