Baby Shower

Yesterday was my niece's baby shower!  Emma & Dylan are expecting a little girl in January!  My sister's and I were thrilled to be able to help out with the shower invitations!   We used the Sizzix Fold Along owl die.  I think they were so cute!

We help make the party favors too!  These little baby carriages are adorable! We made about 30 of them.  I think the lace edging really added to these buggies.

 We used the template from Niki Estes blog site.  I was able to match the circles with some of the dies I have so we didn't have to cut everything by hand.  You can find the link to the template here-

Here's what the fleet of carriages looked like at the shower!  They really hold a lot of candy too!

My "thing" is Papercrafting!  I look at each card as a gift of art!  But I have been seeing some pretty amazing decorated cookies on Pinterest lately and I wanted to give it a try! I think cookies can be a little gift of art too.  Well, not sure mine are yet but I am hoping with a little more practice ...mine might be too....Here are some pictures of the process.

 I cooked up a batch of onesies and bottles. This part of the process was fairly easy! I didn't thing decorating them would be too hard.

Next came the icing.  I used a recipe for Royal Icing.  I watched many videos and searched tons of blogs- there are many recipes for Royal Icing but I settled on one that used Meringue Powder.  It was surprisingly good.  I added the dots to the onesies using the Wet on Wet technique.  I am already talking like a cookie baker!!

The most fun was decorating these guys!  I need to practice some more!!  You really need a steady hand.   I am thinking I will give Christmas cookies a try!

Here is what the cookies looked like at the shower.  It took me quite awhile to decorate them but it was fun!  I didn't think they came out too bad for my first time!

But nothing can compare to this beautiful cake!  Dylan's Mom had a friend who made it for her!  So cute!!

Just a couple more pictures of the shower!  It really was a fun time!  I can't wait to say hello to Emma & Dylan's little one.  We were all so happy to be a part of this fun celebration!
