Lol...yup - I've been MIA again!
If I haven't been commenting on your blogs, I've had a decent excuse :)
Here's what I was working on... needed favors for a baby shower at church Sunday.
I had THIS template from Creations by AR.
I worked it up half a dozen different ways, and it just wasn't what I wanted for this event, so I emailed the incredible Adela Rossol, and asked if she could tweak the front of the outfit to become a cute little scalloped edge dress. LOOK what she did! Love that lady - she's so talented, and so very sweet!
I had all of the pieces cut out, and ready to create the little dress fronts.
One morning, my amazing friend, Shirley, came over, and we assembled the dress fronts,
assembly line style. THANK YOU, Shirley!!!
Each dress got a blouse behind it, a collar, a strip of ribbon, and a rosebud.
Oh...and two cuffs!
Then, we glued a strip of DP around each box, to hide the staples (yes,
the box was quick and easy, with one staple in each side)
Later in the week, I adhered the dress to the box, fixed puffy little bags of Hershey's kisses,
with cute little baby words on the bottom, and lots of white 'shred' material.
Still later in the week, I did this...a glassine bag, stamped with simple Pebbles stamps,
made Ghirardelli White Chocolate Covered Pretzels, with pink sprinkles, and tucked in a Hershey's white
chocolate bar. I computer generated the little saying "Thank you for being here today. You have showered us with blessings, and made our day so 'SWEET'. The names and date followed.
Then, I had leftover kisses. What to do? What to do? AHA! I made these, and they just
filled in some gaps on the food table.
Here is the whole kit and caboodle, ready to party on! It was a wonderful day.
The fellowship hall was full of love and friendship, and OH SO PRETTY baby girl gifts!
All of the designer papers, glassine bags, and ribbon are A Muse Studio products,
which I purchased from my good friend Shirley, who is a demonstrator for the company!
Anyhooo....that's my excuse. 50 of everything later, I'm ready to get inky again! Maybe
I'll have something new to share tomorrow :)
Thanks for stopping by,
