BABY SHOWER FAVORS & CARD...

First of all, I would like to say a special prayer for everyone who lost their lives, lost a loved one, or suffered from the tragic events of 9/11.  I pray that we NEVER experience something like that again!

On a little happier note, today I am attending a baby shower for a friend who recently adopted a 9 month old boy from Japan!  My friend is a single guy and I am so happy for him for taking that special step to become a father.  He is such a giving person and shares his love and Aloha to all that are lucky enough to know him.  My GF asked me to make the favors for the shower and I knew exactly what I wanted to make as soon as she asked me.  I hardly make boy things so I was excited to be able to use my Quickutz tractor and cement truck dies.  I couldn't find a dump truck die so I surfed the net and printed out a picture of a toy dump truck, enlarged it to the size I wanted, and made my own template!  I mounted them on a scallop circle and adhered them to a package of cookies.  I hope everyone will like what I created...


I also created this card to help him celebrate FATHERHOOD!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me all your comments ... they really inspired me to create and you all have a very special place in my heart.  THANK YOU!

These favors are so cute! I've never seen those dies before- must be I just passed them by since they are boy themed. I'm sure he'll love it. How nice of you all to throw him a shower!
