Baby Shower Show & Tell

Peek #1 - Baby Advice Album
Supplies: Stampin' Up Stamps, CTMH ribbons, Queen & Co brads
SU Watercolor Crayons, and other embellies

Peek #2 - The Original Invitation
(This is what you see through the album cover window)
Additional Supplies: SU star punches

Inside the Album:
The right side is the 'advice' page. Each girl wrote on one of these.
The left side throughout the remainder of the book will have a photo
of Ashly with the gift given to her by the girl who wrote the advice.
This image shows my 'intro' to Ashly.

The Cake!
How stinking cute is this! The baker used a copy of the invite to
make a matching cake! Adorable.. I can't wait to show this
to my SU rep! She is just going to love it! She is also a ranch wife, and
the stamps were hers that I borrowed to make the goodies for the party!

I love this photo of her baby tummy and the balloons!

We had a great weekend! Ashly's baby shower was a great event filled with fun, family and lots of playtime! The kids had an absolute blast this weekend.

Ashly's mom, who is Dick's older sister manages (with her husband) the largest ranch in Idaho.. They are running about 2000 head of cattle and are in the process of calving out 650 heifers.. BUSY! The baby shower was at their place.. Between checking mommas (cows), bottle feeding babies (calves), and burning the daylight oil, my sister in law threw a lovely shower. The food was awesome! All weekend we played, ate, laughed, and ate some more. The diet starts again.
The kids got to walk to a lake and see swans and geese. Jake rode on the back of a dirt bike (without asking) and Sami wants to be Sherry's buckaroo this summer... cousins were everywhere, which is good for our kids who are so far from relatives.

My in-laws were also there, and they loved their new albums (one in shutterfly story book form and the other the original scrapbook pages)!

So, that is a wrap! A busy, long weekend.. and I am now tired!

Andi, Andi! That is just too cute but golly it pulled at my heart strings when I read the inset. What you wrote there, the advise and thoughts, well sheesh.

I appreciate that you pointed out "Ashly and balloons" because you're right - that is a magical photo!

Real-life Enhancer Love, *karendianne.
