Brody's Cute as a Bug!

Hi Everyone!


It seems like forever since my last real post!!  My how 2013 seemed to just fly by.  So many changes and adjustments in 2013.  My personal life has been in an uproar for sure!  Hopefully it  will be smoother sailing for me in 2014.  

Thank goodness for my papercrafts, although I don't seem to have the time to post all the time..I do find the time to create.  It's on to a New Year and new beginnings.

It's time for our midway reminder for our current challenge at Simply Create Too.  There is still plenty of time to join in! Our theme is a super easy one...you got it!  "Anything Goes".

I made all these cute goodies for my newest little nephew Brody.  I didn't have a ton of money to spend so I got super creative and had loads of fun doing it.  Babies seem to bring balance to our lives.



I made a card, Cupcake Onesies, a diaper bag filled with all kinds of stuff.  Did I say how carried away I got...lol  Warning!!! this post is loaded with lots of pics.




Inside the diaper bag I made a mini album, a door hanger,  card and so much more!










The diaper bag turned out great and held all the goodies with no problem!  I made sure to reinforce the handles and the bottom.  Just look at all that room.




Everything I used came from my endless supply of stash.  I incorporated the baby shower invitation into one of the mini album tags.




Once again I used lots of my stash and all my favorite tools!!  I will be entering these treasures into the following challenges:

Hope to see you all join in the fun at Simply Create Too!


Thanks for stopping by, hugz

What a very special gift you created for your baby nephew Marjo. It's not how much a gift costs that makes it special but rather the thoughts behind the gift ....and my goodness you've certainly put so much thought into this gift ......along with the gift of your time and the sharing of your considerably talents. I've enjoyed all your photographs and cannot choose a favourite item as everything you have created is just so special. Wishing you a Happy New Year. Good luck in our extended challenge.
