a turtle shower

Loooong post today! I have several pics to share of the baby shower I helped with. The mom is decorating the room with turtles so we went right along with the turtle theme! The Pond Life set from C.C. Designs came in handy here.

Remember the onesies I stamped a few weeks back? I also made this one…

…and we hung them all on a line at the shower for decoration…

Then I made some little gift bags for the winners of the baby games (everyone seemed to enjoy playing along!).  These were filled with some Ghirardelli chocolates and flower bulbs.

Next I made some cupcake toppers…

And then I was inspired from a link shared by JulieHRR (to make tiny cookie buttons).  I made mine from fondant instead.  I used a tiny circle cutter to cut them out and then made the holes with a Wilton frosting tip…

Here’s the cupcake tree…it was a group effort.  My SIL baked them, my MIL filled and frosted them, DD rolled the edges in sugar crystals and I put the decorations on.  Not professionally made but definitely made from the heart!  ♥

I decided to also make some peppermint patty favors…and finally got my Cricut out of the box to cut the large flowers and leaves!  The peppermint patties are sandwiched between the turtle toppers and the flowers.

Gotta love those after Easter sales when you need a cute basket to put them in!

This was my card and it was already shared but I thought I’d add it here again with the rest of the pics….
