Newborn Shadow Boxes

I've been holding onto stuff from when my kids were born because I knew I eventually wanted to do something with them.  I saw a post on pinterest to put it all in a shadow box, so that was what I did today.  I made a stop at hobby lobby this morning, and got 2 16x20 shadowboxes (normally $35 each, but were 50% off this week).  The unfinished wooden letters were also on sale (30% off), so I picked up a "K" and a "P".
Supplies that I had to buy

I ended up needing other supplies that I already had, including white paint for the letters, black cardstock paper for the backing, scrapbook paper for the pictures, and sewing pins to hold things in their places.  Here are the finished products.

Both of them had the bands from the hospital in them

Alligator Baby Shower

My brother-in-law and his wife are expecting their first child in August.  They picked out the Pottery Barn's "Alligator Madras" as the nursery theme, so I planned the shower to match it.

A Pirate Birthday Party

For my son's 4th birthday party back in January, we did a pirate theme.  Like usual, most of the ideas I got from pinterest.  The decorations I got from hobby lobby and Amazon.
