A is for Audrey

I'm so far behind in posting! I can't/won't say much in this public forum, but I've been in a creativity-busting stretch of life. Fortunately, this piece was created for a friend's baby shower earlier this month. Baby Audrey is expected to make an appearance at the end of March. In addition to a couple of traditional baby gifts, I wanted to make something personalized for the baby's wall or door.

I picked up a large letter at Hobby Lobby, and decorated it with some 3-d baby shoes, flowers, a metal "dream" tag, bugs (cute ones though), Audrey's name, primas and brads and some fun striped paper.

Then to wrap up the gift, I picked out some cheery pastel papers with a bright, modern twist. The dots on the paper were patterned (and just happened to match the retired cheesecloth Stampin' Up! background stamp).

I made a card to go with each package (in case they got separated during the gift opening process).

Thanks for looking, and I'll try to post more often in days to come - creativity willing, of course! :)
