Here he comes.....

I'm super excited and nervous about the new baby coming. I have an appt. Monday to give me the exact date....seems like it'll be next week sometime...yay!! I initially wanted a girl, so my only girl would have a playmate, but once we found out it was a boy...I wrapped my mind around that idea and loved the idea of having 4 boys....BUT now...hubby and a few others have said they think it's a girl....so we'll see. I'll have to get girl things, make a new quilt and baby album..but it doesn't matter as long as he/she is happy and healthy. :) Anyway, I had a baby shower last weekend with an animal theme. I think it turned out pretty cute. I made these cupcake toppers and favor boxes. I got the template for the favor boxes here.

I've also started on the baby's first year album. I'm using the Creative Cafe planner for it. I still need to add the months and stuff. I LOVE that it comes with with 4x6 photo slots so I can just add a couple pics a month and voila, yay!!


I knew I wasn't gonna want to scrap my baby shower pics, maybe just one....so I bought one of those $1 photo albums from Wal-Mart with the ugly paper cover and made a lil' mini album for all those pics. I'm pretty happy with how it came out.

School's starting in about a week, so I made one of these for Jace's 1st grade teacher. Thought it'd be a neat lil' gift to start off the new year. I posted some in my etsy shop as well.

Well, that's all for now...I'm off to scrap and do some challenges for Noel Mignon's Summer Crop. Come join the fun if you get a chance. She also has some sneak peeks for the Sept. kit called Core Curriculum. I'm soo getting it. I'm a sucker for school kits. Anyway, I'm out. Peace and love. :)
