Ladybug Diaper Cake & Baby Shower Favors

My little sister, Elizabeth, recently helped host a baby shower for one of her co-workers. The baby's nursery is decorated with ladybugs -- so it was a natural pick for the shower theme. Little Sis called her Big Sis and said "HELP!" ("You know I'm not crafty . . ." is the start of many conversations between my sister and I -- and I am always willing to help her out!)

I had a hard time getting in the groove on this one -- the creative juices just weren't flowing. I hate it when that happens. Fortunately for me (and my little sis), Dee provided the creativity for these two projects! Viola . . . a diaper cake is born. And the favors turned out just too stinkin' cute!

Our handy dandy Cricut was called into action once again -- the ladybugs and leaves are from the Doodlecharms cartridge and the letters and flowers are from the George & Basic Shapes cartridge. The letters were shadow-cut and then glittered with a super-fine holographic glitter.
The ladybug on the favor was rubber stamped and embossed by Dee and then I hit it with a red Tombow marker. The text on the favor's flower center (front and back) was computer generated.

As always, jealous of your creativity. Wonderful idea!
