Burlap and More

 This is a continuation of the creations I made for the baby shower my daughter is putting on next month.  This burlap bag with dollar store doily embellishment and twine tie will probably be hung on her front door.  I just bought some artificial vines and twigs and stuck them in.  Wish I could say that I made that cute picture behind it!
 Burlap banner in baby's name.
These little bags will be used to hold the game prizes.
 Here's my first coffee filter wreath.  I added my handmade bookpage flowers and a glittered "H".  These wreaths are really fun to make.  I think they would be cute hanging all year long.
 We decided we needed to use this cute stork on something so I bought a small hat box at Michaels, covered it with the script scrapbook paper, topped it with some moss and bird's nest with eggs and feathers and stuck the stork on top.  I picked up a package of mini babies in the baby shower section, wrapped one with a little blue ribbon and glued it to the stork's beak.  
TA-DA....a cute table decoration!
Can't wait to see the table when it is all set and ready to go.  Wish I was going to be there for this fun party.  Meanwhile, I am back in AZ and my daughter is finally starting to feel better.  My dear, dear friend, Vicki, flew in two days ago from WA to spend 6 days with me.  We are crafting, shopping and eating out.  Basically having a blast together!
Wait until you see what we made today...it's "LOVE"-erly!!!!
stay tuned
 XOXO
