Up to here in nappies!

Nigel and I were laughing as we went through the checkout with two packets of new born nappies just wanting someone to see us or tell Nigel's sister who works at the supermarket that they saw us with nappies hehe set the tounges wagging.

But in actual fact I had decided to make one for the baby shower that I had this weekend.
Bronwyn and I put out money together and made this:


Of course the card that I had made in the previous post - well the colours didn't match so I had to make another one so they were all colour co-ordinated!
The little "roses" are socks and the "candles" are facecloths, I got the idea from googling nappy cakes and watched a couple of video's on how to do it.
Thanks Jo for coming over and making me use MUCH more of my stash than i would have - but it looks great for doing so!  The cake was well received :-)
It was great to catch up with the ladies in CHCH for the baby shower but it wasn't long enough - bring on the birth of the baby in a couple of weeks and Bo and I will make a road trip out of it - shopping and a road trip to friends yay sounds great to me!
Well that's about it for me for the week - hopefully I can get something crafty done this week - might be on a roll lol!
Tania at Embellish It has put the dates out there for the up and comming crops, Timaru, Oamaru and Dunedin - you go girl!!  So hopefully I will catch up with some of you ladies at the Timaru crop?  And I have booked in for Raincliff so hurry and book your place if you haven't already - I can't wait!

Untill then have a great week, and thanks for visiting.

Cheers

Rachel

My very belated comment. Absolutely gorgeous diaper cake. Love the colours and everything you have put on it. And a gorgeous card. Bet the lucky mother-to-be loved it.
