Baby Shower Invite

I am throwing my little sis a baby shower and I just have to say I was so excited when I finished the invitations. The photo doesn't give it credit. I guess it is a craft because I designed it. Right?!

The white blobs are words spray painted over so personal info wasn't out there.

I got the photo from Kayden's collection from his blessing photos. I have a lot of baby clothes and stuff for her so I went with a theme (time of day). Instead of just saying the theme I came up with silly little rhymes.

I used a scrapbooking program and printed it on matte photo paper. It was fast, easy and a lot of fun.

I did just finish a fun magnet board. That is for sure a craft. I can't wait to post it.

TuTu for my LuLu

Well this isn't MY idea - in fact I just found it blog surfing. I'm good at copying other peoples good ideas...and Lucy LOVES this! She wore it from morning to night on Conference Sunday. I had to hide it so it wouldn't get too trashed before Halloween. You can find the step-by-step here...but it is really easy! I bought my tulle at Joannes because honestly I'm a novice and don't always think...Walmart is 1/2 the price and has way more colors. I'll remember that for the next time that I make one. Oh, also for the elastic hair band make sure it doesn't have the grippy no-slip stuff on it! That made a lot harder.

The girl that I copied it from mentioned maybe doing it in yellow and black for a cute, fancy bumble bee, wouldn't that be too cute!!!

Here is the finished look on Lucy
