Some of you already knew that my daughter and SIL are expecting twins and last Sunday they held a "reveal" party at our house. So I made a few things for the occasion. First off is a centerpiece for the table.
I hand drew the question mark on foam core board and cut out with an exacto knife. I then traced the foam core onto Imagine That!'s Sweet Pastel Digi Paper. I used the plaid paper because I am so into plaid these days and the colors were perfect. I covered the foam core front and back. Then adhered the question mark to the candle. I created two treat boxes using the Sweet Pastels Digi Paper and the Baby Boy Digi Paper. You can find the pattern for the baby bottle treat boxes at Maria's Inspired and Unscripted blog. I used the pre-colored digis from Little Blessings to decorate the front and back of the bottle treat boxes. Here's a closer look at the baby bottles.
The sentiment (which is so totally adorable!) is from the Little Blessing stamp set. I'd bought this Gina Marie Designs Quilt die several months ago and had never used it. And since I LOVE this plaid paper so much (did I mention that?) I had to use it with this die. So I used the Sweet Pastel Digi paper again to create this card. I punched the sentiment out with an ekSuccess punch and inked it with Peacock Feathers distress ink.
Here's the sets I used:
I am entering these challenges:
- Through the Craft Room Door: anything goes
- Get Creative challenge: celebrations
- Inspiration Destination: anything goes
- Crafty Sentiment Designs: anything goes
So now that I showed you the decorations I suppose I should tell you the big "reveal!" The twins are a boy and a girl. Baby A is Arthur Alexander and Baby B is Valerie Renee. I am busy crocheting baby blankets and whatever else I can get together before they are born. June 30th was my last full time day at work. I'm just working 2 days a week now and when the babies are born I'll be retiring completely to help with the twins. What could be better than a full-time grandma! I'm looking forward to it. Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is awesome!
