Rebecca's Baby Shower Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Lisa’s daughter, Rebecca’s, Baby Shower! What a great idea to have a baby shower between your blogging friends. Lisa has asked that we make a two-page layout which she will present to her daughter. Rebecca is having a boy and her son’s name will be Maxwell Thaddeus. There is a fantastic line-up to check out all of our layouts which I hope you enjoy!!!

If you have arrived here from
Theresa, then you are at the right place for this baby shower. If you just happened to visit me today or happened upon my blog, I don’t want you to miss a single present for the baby shower and would want you to begin at the very beginning which is the proud soon-to-be-first-time-Grandma, Lisa.
Here is my second page L/O. I chose the same blue paper for the background with embossed stars on it. I used a Sizzix Stitched frame die for the picture spots. You can't see the edge, but the die cut little stitches into the paper. I used a ducky paper from my stash (no name on it) and then added yellow card stock behind it. I left the top and both sides open for easy insertion of pictures. I made two spots for journaling or smaller pictures. I used a Fiskars star corner punch. The wagon is also a Sizzix die. I cut it once in the duck paper and then once in the blue card stock paper, for the handle.  Then added some buttons for the wheels. The words were cut from a sheet of baby saying paper (also from my stash with no name) and then backed with yellow glitter paper. The circle pictures were also backed with yellow glitter paper. I used a scallop punch on some and for wider ones I cut a circle and used decorative scissors to cut the edge.  All the little bling pieces, such as the blocks, diaper pins, etc, came out of my bling jars. I have one that is just baby items. I pick up buttons and different things at times to put in my bling jars.

Here's a picture of both pages put together.
Your next stop is to see what Sam has made for the baby!
Happy Stamping, Crafting, and blogging!
