More than layouts...

Good morning!  I mentioned a few weeks ago that I have been working on a project for a baby shower and nursery since last November.  Well, the baby shower was held last weekend and the baby's nursery is almost ready, awaiting her arrival in about 4 weeks.  This is the banner of her name.  It was used on a panel at the shower and is now on the nursery wall above the baby's crib. It is filled with beautiful trims, papers, flowers, lace and Melissa Frances crystals hang from each flag of the banner.

This is a 5-foot-tall wrought iron bird cage which opens up. It is all decorated with feathers, lace, flowers, rhinestones and crystals.

These are small paper bags decorated with white doilies, tea pot, flowers, pearls and filled with a variety of tea bags.  They filled the inside of the bird cage   Each guest took one of these home as a memoir of Emily Grace's shower.

This is a personalized box made using the metal tape technique. Emily Grace's father used it to give his precious baby girl her first diamond earrings.

The theme throughout the shower was shabby chic.  This was one of the serving table decorations made with lots of Prima lace and flowers.

These were the dress-forms (Kaisercraft) decorating each of the tables. No two were the same.  Fancy wood trim was used to make the shoulders while loads of feathers, rhinestones, trims, burlap, lace, ribbons, tulle, Prima and Melissa Frances goodies embellished them.

The small monogrammed bottles placed around the dress-forms were filled with pink jelly beans and each had a tag that read "Something sweet from Emily".  Each guest got to take a bottle home with them.

There were a number of beautiful crowns made with Prima flowers & Melissa Frances tissue paper garland that the guests used taking group pictures.  Here is the lovely mommy-to-be wearing her very own special crown while posing with two of her new embellished picture frames; the one in her hands with Emily's 3-D ultrasound photo.

My world of paper crafting has been turned upside-down!  As soon as I get a chance to visit the nursery, I'll post some photos.  Have a great and blessed day!
