I have the last items completed and ready for my sister's baby shower next weekend, now we just have to hope she doesn't go into labor before the shower.
I had lots of fun making her card and the party favors. The party favors are cake wedge shaped boxes filled with little candies. There are 12 boxes on the bottom layer and 8 on the second layer. Those two layers are covered with a sparkly tulle and then the "topper" was added. HOw cute is this? The little medallions were made with my Cricut and then stamped with the baby images.
And of course there must be a card. I finally got my hands on some Ranger Fragments, so much fun to play with. And what's a card without Prima paper and flowers?
So now, I just need to pick up all the food items and I should be all set. If you have any suggestions for good, easy, and cheap party food I'm all ears.

All the invitations are complete and, thanks to a scrapping marathon last night, both of the twins' baby albums are now complete! I do not do well with pre-made pages (which is why I have been putting them off for so long), so I am glad to be done with the albums. And I just placed the order for her shower gift. Now the question is, how am I going to get it home? I ordered a double baby stroller online from good ole Wally World since they don't sell it in the store and had it delivered directly to the store. Can you believe they wanted almost $100 to deliver it to the house?! No way am I paying that much for shipping. Guess I'll have to sweet talk one of my friends with a truck. Can you see me trying to get that monstrosity of a stroller into my Saturn? So now all that is left is to make the party favors and just wait for the babies to arrive.

I have decided it's finally time to set up my own blog. It may take me a while to figure this whole thing out, so just bear with me. But I figure this will be a great way for the entire family to keep up with what's going on and I can show off all the new pics of my twin nieces (once they arrive of course).
