Jen's baby shower

Jennifer, a co-worker, had her baby shower yesterday at work and since she is such a special person to know and work with, I made her 2 very special gifts. The first is a candy cake in all baby blues because she is having "James". These cakes (see the birthday one below) are just so special, fun, and easy to make. They are made using Hershey nuggets attached to styrofoam and covered with scrapbook paper. However, I don't know how you would ever be the "first"
to take one off!!! I made the block at the top using a 2 inch cube and spelled James on each side using the Cricut cartridge George. All the paper was from Joann's paper stacks as well as the teddy bears and signs from the baby department.

The next gift was a paint can using Autumn Leaves DP; Oxford from Bazzill; SU Old Olive and Really Rust. I used the New Arrival Cricut cartridge for the plane and train and clip art for the banner. The frog and dragon were done by hand. On the top of the can I created a poem about saving all those little things that are Jen's baby boy. It made her cry!!!
