A New Baby

Happy Saturday evening peeps....I have been crazy busy trying to get this diaper cake made and been battling a cold. I guess more nursing the cold than anything. It seems like it just doesn't want to move on. BAH!!! My girlfriend and I went to a baby shower today for a co-worker and this is what I made for our gift. I kept the diaper cake simple and we ended up putting all of the gifts into a bag instead of loading down this. I really wanted the cake to shine instead of getting lost with all of the gifts loaded onto it....this is the second one I've made and I really loved how this one turned out....ENJOY!!!!!!
I know it's not a very good photo but I thought you'd like to see it anyways....I ended up using 90 baby diapers to make the 3 tiers....wrapped each one in a receiving blanket added 3 layers of ribbon premade bows and to hiide the tops of the diapers I used the bag filler stuff....the huge rhinestones is actually a plastic ring and I got those in the party section at Wal-Mart....I purchased everything here from Wal-Mart with the exception of the darker ribbon (Micheals)...oh and thoise darling little shoes I paid $1.75 for those...man was I doing the happy dance...lol...who needs expensive shoes when they are that young...lol... here's the matching card....I used an image from Mel-Jen Designs....I thought it was perfect for the musical giraffe on top of the cake....I also used tulle and the darker ribbon like I did on the cake to try and keep the desing the same....now I know this is a girl present, and I didn't realize that this was a boy giraffe, but hey, things like this happen when you get older...lol...you don't see as well....
here's the inside...crap photo again...just wanted to do a visual...I kept it very simple...
and here she is in all her glory....I just used clear celephane--2 strips and rolled and tucked and tied at the top......everyone loved it....
************************
well that's all I have for today....this week I need to get ready for our yearly St. Patty's Day Smash Bash we do every year....I have some new items to work with for our costumes and soo can't wait to pull it all together....DH has even added new stuff this year....I was just looking at our photos from the past 6 years...I'll have to share them...it's a true sign DH and I really are nurds....lol....so stay turned...maybe tomorrow....Hugs from Charm City....
