Baby Shower

My friend and co-Stampin' Up! addict - I mean demonstrator - Kim is having a baby. A third Stampin' Up! person (who is also a Ginger) and I decided to give her a baby shower. The shower was last Sunday, but I'm just getting around to posting this. Sorry. I've been busy.

Here is the card I made for her. I've wanted to make this card forever! The little babies are suspended in the punched window with a length of cord - two babies are cut out and glued back to back with the string in the center, then the cord is taped between the white card and the colored cardstock. The background stamping on the pink and yellow pieces doesn't show up, but it did in real life. I promise.

This scrapbook layout was our last Hostess Club layout. Because our family never takes pumpkin pictures, I knew from the moment I decided on this layout that it would be Kim's.

The shower was a crafty shower. I made scrapbook pages for her to simply add photos to (this is the only one I thought to take a picture of). Others made baby blankets and cards. And one wonderful person brought her an insulated tote filled with frozen dinners! Every new mom needs a friend like that!

What a great baby shower theme! I have made albums before but never thought about the frozen dinners. Great idea!
