|A baby shower for Kristin|
I have been planning a baby shower for my daughter-in-law, Kristin. She is having her second baby and our second granddaughter in August. I have been working on the decorations and the menu for weeks. It has been loads of fun.
I made these sweet favor boxes from a tutorial that was so easy to follow. Diagonal opening gift box

|More decorations.... |
Caroline does a great job with her directions.
I used a die that makes these awesome bows. I
believe they are from Spellbinders.
I put Hershey kisses in them and a lip balm or eye make up. I love how cute they are in pink.
I also made a sweet banner that says," Baby Isabelle" for the fireplace. I used a die that makes different sized cut outs. It is from Spellbinders, also. I mounted the pieces on pink designer papers. I think I will keep it and hang it in the playroom. I will make one for Evy ,too. I can't find the one I made for her shower. I think the little pink clothespins are awesome.

I think Evy liked the menu. I made marshmallow ballerinas that I found on Pinterest. I am not a marshmallow lover, but you put a little frosting on them and roll them in pink sugar and I am all over it....
You have to try them. I thought they were wicked cute and the kids loved them....
I did finish a Saucy folder that Country Craft Creations put out. I really love how it turned out. The directions are not too difficult to do with a video tutorial that Tammy Merrill does. Here is the link for you, if you want to try this one. Tammy's Saucy Album Tutorial
| The cover has pockets, too.|
|Open up again and it has on the right the waterfall section and|
on the left you see clear photo pockets.
|Open up and it reveals two more areas for photos.|
|Pockets and pages for more photos on the left side.|
It has so many ways to put pictures in the different pockets or folders. The waterfall section came out the best I have ever done one.
I really like how magnets keep the two parts together. Then you open up again and it reveals the inside folders and pockets.
I used Graphic 45 French Country collection which I absolutely love. Everything coordinates so well together. You can not make a mistake. It is all in what you like to see.
I still have some more cards to make and I am starting a
new album that Butterbee Scraps has in a video tutorial and a cheat sheet. That is what she calls it. I am waiting for the clasp to come so I can continue the assembling of the pages. I will show that album next time.
Summer is going fast. Here is a picture of

Sara Evans at the L.L. Bean free concert
last weekend. It poured but she was so good
that we just sat in the rain and it passed. I was
soaking wet, but her music is worth it.
Keep dry... happy summer times.
