The Baby Shower is on!!!!

Boy that sure was a close one. Bill kept telling me that a "surpise baby shower" was not a good idea. He would say "what if she doesn't come?" Little did I know that his prediction would come true. But, I have talked to Jennifer and she is going to come. So the shower is on!!! Everyone who is coming to the shower is making a scrapbook page for her. It's hard to see in the picture, but the little bar code says "Handle with Care. Special Delivery". I want this to be the first page in the book so show the new arrival. I used some of the things that I learned at Retreat to make this page. I sanded the cardstock. It brought out the white core of the paper and gave it texture. I used rub-ons for the word "blessings" and the bar code. The chipboard frame was sponged in baby pink ink. The flower is pink and the edges are sponged in Blush ink. Over the flower is a lavender button. To make it look like it's threaded through the button, I tied a knot in a piece of ribbon. With a glue dot I attached it. All used are from CTMH.
