PDCC #92

Hello, friends:}

Hoooooray for another fun day over at the Play Date Cafe! We are starting another color story today--Coral, Petal Pink, Antique Gold--I instantly thought of little girls!
 I only thought of little girls because I had to make some fun gifts for a baby shower that I was headed to earlier this month. My friends, Darcy & Mark, are having a baby girl!! Soooo fun! So I went shopping and got some beautiful gold cupcake liners and pink socks. I made these fun baby sock cupcakes with coral flowers and a butterfly (which was highlighted with gold powdered pigment). SOOOO cute! Love these little cupcakes!
 Here's a top view--not the greatest pic.
I also made a prayer journal. I love giving prayer journals as gifts--if you want the PDF of this project, please send me an email:)
I didn't stop there--I needed a card! So I used plain coral, light pink, and the most gorgeous gold paper ever (you might not be able to see it but the gold paper is the bottom layer/card base). LOVE it! It's sheer and shimmery--so lush and super gold!
OH--I wish you could see that gold paper--it is just so LUSH! LOVE it! 

And then I bought some wrapping paper to match the entire set! Inside the box, I put some other homemade gifts [i.e. eco-tissues, a boo boo bunny, and a tag blanket]. LOVE LOVE LOVE this entire color story!
That's it for me....but be sure to stop by the PDCC blog for complete details and prize information! The PDCC sponsor this week is The Scrapbooking Studio. And don't forget to stop by all the other PDCC DT members' blogs-- AMAZING! I can't wait to see what you make!!


Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed:}
