Smallest Pumpkin in the Patch!

A few friends and I recently threw a baby shower for a tiny little boy who is near and dear to our hearts. It was a pumpkin themed shower.  I had tons of fun designing the invitations as well as putting together a few special gifts.

First, the invitations.  My Cricut came is real handy for this one!


I also made some party favors with a little pumpkin stamped on the tag.  And a few friends and I attempted to make a pumpkin shaped cake using two bunt pans.  We learned that we should have filled each bunt pan to the top in order to get the shape we wanted.  We also used an ice cream cone for the stem.  





I also put together this little beanie for the little man!



And made him and his older brother matching jackets.



















































































And the top it off I put together this little display album for his mommy!















































It was a fun party for a very special mommy and baby!

Becca, what don't you do? You're incredible! My mom and I had a crafting day last weekend, and we got so overwhelmed by all the options on our cricut that we went shopping instead...

Your work is UNBELIEVABLE! I want to make Gracie a duvet cover for her big girl bed, coming this summer, any suggestions for fabric? Any chance you could guide me in the right direction to create her an elephant shirt like Ethan's fire truck one?! You are truly amazinG!
