Baby Girl

I was asked by my sweet mother-in-law to make a diaper cake for a baby shower.  I, of coarse, was excited to do so.  I had made one before and was excited to improve on some of my ideas.  My mother-in-law helped out a ton by paying for a lot of the stuff.  I am super happy with how it turned out and it was a hit at the shower.

I of coarse had to add some cute paper cut outs.

 Lots of cute fabric and ribbon were involved.

 Add some cute baby essentials that make it cute and decorative.  I used baby wash clothes for some rolled roses.  CUTE!!!  I know you love those little boot slippers too huh?

 I am really happy with how it turned out!  I love the colors and everything.  

Matching card!  Wa-Hoo!

Cute huh?  I really enjoy making diaper cakes because the end result is always so cute!  I urge each of you to try one when you have a baby shower.  You will not regret it!

This is just so adorable...I have looked at these so many times. I think it would be so fun to make and give as a gift. Maybe someday I will work up the nerve to do one.
