Recent Scrappy Projects

This is the project I've been working on most recently. It's a shower gift for my college roommate, Yvonne. Her shower was a week ago Sunday and I haven't done a darn thing since. I think I was just too bummed about about missing her shower. Little man got a stomach bug from the gym daycare and then gave it to me. I was so upset about missing her shower. I called her that morning, crying. She is such a fantastic friend and did so much for my shower and then, I couldn't even go to hers. I felt like such a chump.

Anyway, she's having a little boy, Connor, and her due date is the end of March. Her nursery colors are slate blue and chocolate brown with monkeys. So, I made some goodies for Connor and his room. :D

First off, he's getting a set of blocks with his name on them. (I didn't take a picture of just the blocks and I have no idea why not.) They actually turned out pretty good for my first time altering blocks. :D

Oh, and here's the card I made for the shower. I got the idea from a pillow with a flower made of buttons.

This is a nametag for Connor's diaper bag. Yvonne can put a photo of Connor or instructions for the babysitter on the other side.

This lovely little frame is one I made following a tutorial from Samantha. She used ribbons on the seam between the papers but, I think the buttons work best for a boy. ;)

Oh, and here's a little extra I made a while ago. It's the card I made for my RAK winners! I used the same striped paper altering a Target mailbox and it inspired the rest of the card. Oh, and that cute little white paper is from a Martha Stewart kit I got on clearance at Mike's. It's was actually a kit to make napkin rings and such. I think this is a much better use, don't you?

I totally love that card and I hope you don't mind that I will be lifting it! I remeber seeing those blocks at the crop we met at. So cute!! I'm lifting those too for my DS's room. lol

So sorry you didn't get to go to the shower. That would have bummed me out too. Hope you are feeling better!
