A Baby Shower ...


Today I taught a card class and one of the gals is expecting her first baby ... a BOY!  So, we got together and threw her a little mini baby shower of sorts!


There was BLUEberry cobbler bars, fruit salad with BLUEberries, BLUE chips with Artichoke & Spinach Dip and BLUE plates, napkins and decorations!!


I made some favor boxes for everyone in attendance (I purchased the boxes as my time was too short to make them from scratch), but I made the Hershey Kisses tent treat (filled with 'It's a Boy' kisses!).


Lots of pretty blue on the baby card I made for Nicolle ... along with a glitterly aqua binder clip and sparkly silver (gray) baby rattle.  Too sweet!!


I have two sons, so I know 'all about boys' and shared some tips and tricks with the expectant mom today!  She is in for a FUN ride :)


We enjoyed a yummy brunch (thanks Beth!!), followed by a game of Baby Shower BINGO!


There were a couple baby presents - yippiee!!


And then we all got busy ... stamping and paper crafting the morning away!  What a FUN day :)

Thanks for peeking in today!

Challenges for this baby card:
