This idea came straight out of one of Donna Downey's amazing books, I think "Fabric Scrapbooks". I thought it might inspire someone (even if it's just me :)). Whenever I type a smiley at the end of a parentheses like that, I think it looks like it has a double chin! Not the look I'm going for LOL
I thought these little "in the hoop" wallets/ post it note holders were cute prizes for this jungle-themed shower. We played a couple of jungle-themed games, of course! The design is from Sewing for Sarah, I really enjoy her unique designs!

This was my first time cutting out fabric with the Cricut. I used the Lyrical Letters cart for the letters. They are cut from white satin. I used a wonder under-type product and then used the mirror image so I could place the right side down on the cricut and the blade would go through the paper (rather than the fabric) side first. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out. You can't see it in the pictures, but all elements are lined with gold foil which really catches the light during service. Hurray for "cricuting" for the Glory of God!
I originally created these pages with thoughts of trying to sell them on ebay, but after I finished them, I decided to keep them! I embroidered the princess (Designs by JuJu) and started with her. I used Storybook, Serenade, and Happily Ever After carts. I can't wait to find the perfect pics for this layout!
