Shower for Baby Olivia

Hello Everyone,  today we celebrate the coming of Baby Olivia. 

I'm so happy that CallyAnn has asked me to be apart of this baby shower hop for Sandra of 365 Days of Cricut.  She is due any day now and we wanted to show her some blogging love before the blessed event. 

Each of us has prepared a wonderful baby gift to share with you and then send off to her.  I have to start with a quick card for her new baby girl

This is a standard 5.5 X 4.25 card.  I used A Muse Studio card stock for the base and matt.  The pattern paper is from DCWV Nanna's Nursery.  The stamps are A Muse Studio Little Peanut and Chirrup.   The inside statement reads "tiny yawns and sleepy sighs, nursery rhymes and lullabies"

The gift I made for Sandra is a shadow box picture frame with Olivia's name.  It's just waiting for a few tiny pictures from mom.

Here is an 8 X 8 shadow box frame that I picked up from Michael's.  I used K & Company Small Wonders paper to cover the base of the frame.  Then I used corresponding prints for the letters that were cut from the Mickey Font Cricut Cartridge.  The flowers are from Creative Memories. 

I hope that Sandra will enjoy our special creations in honor of baby Olivia. 

If you stopped by today in the middle of the hop, I hope you will go back to CallyAnn's blog and see what great gifts have been created.  If you have been playing along with our hop today, you should have arrived from Lori.  Your next stop is Monica.

I have blog candy to go along with our hop today.  One lucky winner chosen by will win A Muse Studio Sleepy Sighs stamp set. 

 If you're not already a follower, become one. Then leave a comment below and you will be entered to win.

If you get side tracked along the way, here is the full blog hop line up. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Winner & Baby Shower Hop

Hello Everyone, 

I have to admit that I'm slow getting back to my blog.  Work's been busy and unfortunately I have to use the accounting side of my brain to pay for the creative side, blogging takes a back seat.  I want to thank everyone for stopping by and leaving such nice comments during the last blog hop.  The Crafting by Designs Network picked up a few new members.  We would love to add more wonderful members.

I used to pick a winner for the A*Muse Studio stamp set.
