Okay, first I will apologize to my few followers for not having posted for awhile. Things have been a bit crazy around here and unfortunately, not a lot of stamping has gone one !! :( And, just so you all know - I miss it terribly. I had a horrific day yesterday, running around doing errands for other members of my family. I had to complete my shower gift (for the mother of twins - invite posted earlier) and I didn't get into my stamp room until 2:30 in the afternoon. Then of course, I was interrupted for dinner and a neighbor came over with some delicious homemade ginger snap cookies that she made, and that meant another break. I'm not protesting - the cookies are wonderful and I'm always willing to take a break - but I sure was cramped for time.

With that said, I'm still very happy with how my present turned out. Here are the pics of the finished product.
The package on the right are the thank you cards that I made for the Mom to be. The cards match the invitation with the same Basic Grey designer paper. The cute little box is the egg box from Papertrey. Unfortunately, I couldn't use the egg insert because I bought baby leg warmers and they were too bulky for that detail. (For those of you who are unfamiliar with this cute box, go to Papertrey.com and view Nicole Heady's site - you will see some amazing stuff). I also included two bibs that are from Midwest Airlines that say "Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumb Catcher" !! :)

The card on top of the box is made with the new baby set from Papertrey. Love that set. The book in back is a Shel Silverstein book. If you haven't read any of his books, I highly recommend them. They are wonderful children's books that I still enjoy reading.

Here are some close ups of the items.I hope you enjoy my projects and I hope the Mom to be does too.
I will be back soon with some class cards that I made and I actually did an SCS Challenge !! But, I'll keep you in suspense with that one !! LOL !!

Have a great Sunday everyone.
