Finally Done!

I finished the last of my projects for the baby they are in all their glory!! I am so excited about becoming an aunt, and I wanted all his stuff to be *just right*. LOL And it was really hard to not use more ribbon...and no sparkles at all!! In the gift basket were Thank You cards, an 8x8 board book scrapbook, 2 I Love NY onesies, a monogram K, and some travel wipes and baby stuff. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with this stuff.

I used the Basic Grey Baby Boy and Bazzil papers in Fiesta, Arctic, and Lilypad on the board book and Crib Notes book. The Crib Notes was a bare 5x7 7Gypsies book with O-Rings. I printed "Crib Notes" on my printer, sealed it, and used Mod-Podge to adhere and protect it.The ribbon is from various places including Micheals, Recollections, and the Scrap Bucket. I also printed lines on the pages for guests to write advice or well-wishes for the mother-to-be. Baby Boy paper is on the Monogram K. (for Keegan!)

And here is a close up of the Thank You Notes. I tried to go with simplicity after making 40 Pocket Cards! LOL

Stamps: By Air, Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Fluid Chalk Ink in Warm Red, Palette Noir by Stewart Superior
Accessories: Fiskars Cloud Scissors, Black Gel Pen, Stamp-a-Majig
The saddest thing of all is that I didn't capture the "piece de resistance" 4 Layer Chocolate Pie. But it tasted delicious. LOL I am exhausted and going to veg in front of the TV tonight...hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Are you kidding me?! Love, love, love your blog - lots of eye candy! Hey, will you shoot me a scrap with some of that shiny mist stuff? I would love to see what it's like. Checked out the web photo of it, but I'm sure it didn't do it justice....
