Pink and Girly Diaper cake

I am addicted to making these.. This was made for a friend that already had 4 little girls and this is her 5 one so I wanted it to be Pink and Girly.
I only used a little cricut on this one, as I wanted it to be plainer, or more elegant.
I used New arrival and Childs year for scalloped circle and Storybook for the "Emily".

It is a blanket wrapped around the top layer. I made the blanket to match the cute little cherry socks I found.
aren't those socks just the cutest

Some past diaper cakes Twins

I love making these practical but cute gifts. and I have had a few friends in the past year have babies so it has been fun.

Here's one I made for a friend having Twins Welcome Lillian and Wyatt the cutest babies.They about 5 months old now wow I'm a little behind LOL
I loved playing with my New Arrival cartridge for the embellishments for this So fun and cute.

football diaper cake

This diaper cake I made for friends's that are expecting their first baby a boy.The babys room is going to be a sports theme. The Dad is a college football player. so when I saw this future MVP onesie set I couldn't resist , so I based the cake around that.
It went great with the sports theme baby shower.
I totally forgot to take close up pictures before hand so here are some from the shower.
Congrats Maddi and Josh


So I am involved in another swap with Jean P on the cricut Message board. I have really cut back on the amount of swaps I'm in.But its so hard to resist swapping with this wonderful group of ladies . We really have a great group of talented swappers and I love these little works of Art or Artist trading Cards . Its like little treasures from friends.
This ATC swap was an abc swap make atc's with letters of the alphabet I had B, J, M, W 2 letters in 2 groups.
 We needed to be creative with our letters not the everyday A for Apple etc etc
So My B is" Bee Happy" the little Bee's have B's for wings.
Beehive and Bee's are cut with the Pooh and friends Cricut cartridge
J is for Japan I used my new pagoda Cartridge for the background mesh Lots of little bits to poke out once cut LOL.Then stamped and cut out my Japanese Lady
I had to made 13 of each of these cards which I did. But as I was packing them up to mail for some unknown reason I only had 12 one was lost in my crazy mess of a table. I even tidied up and still couldn't find it.
I thought thats ok I will send in 12 as the 13th one was for me anyway. So I pack up  my others then go to bed for the night leaving my Japan ones still on the table, So  I come down in the morning and My glue bottle had leaked  all over one of my Japan cards. So I am now down to 11 arrgh..So I create another but didn't have any more of the trim I was using so one will have different trim. Seriously I am usually not that careless . I tell you my life is crazy right now!

 M is for Magnolia I used the 3D decoupage technique on this card. where you have layers of the same image popped up with pop-up adhesive pads . I fell in love with this technique in England. I love the effect it has.

This is my W card for Wishing well I used different Glittered card stock for the letters and background the well was cut with the Happily Ever After Cricut cartridge It's one of the extras with snow white. So even if you never use the princesses on this cartridge there are so many extras It's a great cartridge.

Wow has it been that long . Life is crazy!

So yes I am seriously the worst at keeping up with my blog lately.
What with health issues that still aren't resolved, Hoping more surgery isn't needed, But I am just chugging along as best I can.
my Dr said " You need to relieve some stress from your life"
I said OK maybe you find out whats wrong then I won't stress!
Anyway moving on I have a ton of photos to up load of various projects swaps  that have kept me busy the last few weeks  . So be ready for a ton of posts this week as I try  to play catch up
