Bridal Shower!


Favors made with SU Curvy Keepsake die

My sister, Adrianne's bridal shower was last Saturday!  I can finally show some of the projects I worked on for her shower!  It was so much fun to plan the shower with my sisters, Connie, Rochelle and Andrea!  Mom helped too!  It was the first party in our new home too!  I loved having family and friends come to celebrate such a wonderful event!

The banner above was made with Stampin Up's banner dies.  I borrowed them from my sister but I think I may have to purchase them myself.  It is a great way to make banners.  My sister, Rochelle made the fabulous letter "D" covered in pictures of my sister and her intended.  It is leaning against the TV. 


I wanted a picture of my sister with the decorations on the front porch.  We used the wedding dress from my sister Connie's wedding!  I made the flowers that you can just see on the top of the small ladder.  They are Origami flowers and really fun to make!

On the other side of the porch, I made Pinwheels using the We R Memory Keepers pinwheel maker board.  I love them!  The wind was blowing just enough to make them spin! 

Sorry this post is so long but I wanted to finish with the Screen Door we decorated with pictures of Adrianne thru the years- I used a Spellbinders die to make this banner.  The shower was a labor of love for Adrianne!  Can't wait for the wedding in June!

Bean Bags!

We have 2 weeks before my youngest sister Adrianne's bridal shower!  I am hosting this happy event at our new home!  I have been working feverishly to get things done since we just moved into the house in December.  I can't show you anything since I want my sister to be surprised!  Can't wait to share some of the projects! 
I did take time to make these adorable "Bean Bags" or at least that is what I call them.   I found Carolyn's tutorial on Pinterest here-
I love her little bags!  I did make my handles a little thicker- I used 1/2 inch and I added the strips from the handle down to the base strip.  I wanted them to look like a "Bean Bag".   You know- LL Bean's tote bags.  Carolyn's instruction are easy and fun to do!  The red bag was my first attempt so I made a few boo boos but the next ones came out much better. Carolyn put cards in them but I think I will put cello bags with candy in them and give them as gifts.   I love em!
