I  been involved in the Mystery Cropped Event with Above Rubies Studio this weekend .  There's been challenges all weekend and this happens to be Challenge #5 and we needed to make something with paper only,  no ink, embellishments, etc.  This is a layout of my grandson, Michael, at his graduation from kindergarten.  I found this paperline at Crafts Direct yesterday and just fell in love with it., its called "Curiosity" Details from Authentique.   I hope you like!

My 1st Diaper Cake

Wow... I can't believe how long its been since I last posted !
 Life has been pretty crazy and it's sad to say, but the the first thing that gets neglected is the crafting. I think I need to change that.

The start of the hunting season, for my hubby, opened this weekend  and according to him "The Craft Opener" has also begun.  LOL!      I figured that I better get this season started!!

My goddaughter's baby shower is coming up next weekend and I wanted to do something special for her.  I've been hearing,  never actually seen one,  about  diaper cakes so I started poking around the internet and  I came across this blog,  Sweetaprils, that had a wonderful and easy tutorial on how to make a motorcycle cake. 
 I  love  how this turned out!   I have to find a driver for this bad boy yet so I'll have to do an update when I find him :)


Things I used:
 1 pk (50ct) newborn diapers                          
 4 receiving blankets
     - 2 for bike , 2 for cardboard platform                       
  1 pr. of socks
  2 onesies
  1 bottle
  Ribbons to match
  rattle & teething ring
I'll also be getting a stuffed animal for the rider and I have a baby hat and   another onesie to dress him in.

Thanks so much for looking!!

Happy Crafting Season!!!!
