It's a BOY!

**This is my second post today, if you're looking for my Just Us Girls post, it is right below this one!**

Lauren Meader of My Time Made Easy, LLC has come up with some RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING templates this month.  I think my favorite HAS to be the Bouncing Baby Buggy.  It looks complicated, but trust me, VERY easy to assemble.  Especially with my Cricut, half the work is already done!  Of course, you do need the Sure Cuts A Lot software, but it is WELL worth the investment!

Did you know that my My Time Made Easy team mate Katie is currently doing a GIVEAWAY for a copy of the software???  YES!!  In order to be eligible to win, you need create something using ANY My Time Made Easy, LLC product.  Paper, stamps, templates...it all counts -- and make sure it's your best work, as Lauren has decided to sweeten the deal by giving one talented artist the ENTIRE April My Time Made Easy release!! so GO make something, and enter to win!  Oh wait -- but finish reading my post before you go -- you WON'T be disappointed, lol.

Even though I have girls, I do have LOTS of nephews, and I enjoy making things for them as well, though I think I'm naturally inclined towards girl stuff, lol.  Today I have a twist on an old favorite, and something new...


Do you all remember this project that Lauren made?!?  I still remember - my jaw hit the FLOOR when I saw it!  Amazing, beautiful, wonderful!  I have since made a few myself, and this time around, I changed things up a little bit.  First, I used these adorable washcloths that have a piping edge on them, which worked out wonderfully for my 'roses'.  Then, I stuck them onto the end of bamboo skewers, and made them into long stems!  I arranged them in a vase with some artificial greenery, and voila!  Beautiful table decor/gift for that new mom to be.  I made a 'floral pick' with a tag from the new Tag, You're It pretty pieces file, and it was stamped with the carriage image from the Bringing Home Baby pretty impressions stamp set, and some flourishes from Fanciful Flourishes (I know they're hard to see, but they are there, I promise!!)
I still had some more washcloths to package up, so to accompany the vase of 'flowers', I put together the Bouncing Baby Buggy Pretty Packaging template.  Isn't this thing just SO CUTE?!?!  I know, I'm sorry, I say that all the time...but it's the truth!
That delicious patterned paper is from the Bringing Home Baby Boy pack, I pulled the 'stars' from the paper to use as accents on the carriage. 

Here's a photo of the whole 'ensemble' together...

WHEW!!  I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted! lol.  I do thank you for 'bearing' with me ;).  Now, go ahead and play -- if you read my next post, you can see how you can work toward a 3rd giveaway!  The Just Us Girls challenge has a sponsor this week -- sooooo, if you use the JUGS sketch, and some My Time Made Easy products, you could be entered to win 3 different giveaways...pretty sweet huh???  Where are those pile it on girls??? :)

Stay tuned...

LMBO about the "pile it on girls" comment :] ha ha ha ha

Tracey, this is so flippin ADORABLE!!! Girl, your mojo is in serious overdrive...please send some my way :] I have been smiling ear to ear since I looked at the first photo...girl, you really made all of the simple elements work perfectly together! LOVE that you pulled the stars from the paisley design and incorporated them into the template, and that bouquet of rose wash cloths is fantastic! Great idea to add them to the buggy also. Oh and don't let me forget how fab I think your tag is. So neat that you added it to the bouquet just like the florists do. This is a perfect baby boy gift for any expecting or new mom!
