We through her a baby shower about a month ago, and I volunteered to make all the shower decorations. Her nursery is "Little Monsters" and I have to say it is super cute. This really just gave me a reason to purchase the Bump in the Night Cartridge. Which is one that I have wanted for a long time, but didn't hadn't had a reason to buy it.
I made the banner, you see above, along with cupcake toppers and a "Monster Mom" pin for Kate to wear during the shower. I love how well it all turned out. Everything was made using coordinating papers and cardstock, foam tape, and a white gelly roll pin.

Dallas and I were invited to a Halloween party, and we wanted to take a little something to the party. We decided to make brownies. Using my Happy Hauntings cartridge, I cut out some ghosts, a 3-D tree, and some halloween phrases. I cut the tree out using thin chipboard and then used a black ink pad to add a bit of color. When the brownies were done, we aranged the tree in the middle with the brownies stacked all around it, almost like the tree was on the top of a hill, then put the ghosts and phrases all around it. I have to say, it turned out really cute. I only wish I had a picture of the completed project, because it was really cute!

Sticks: Bamboo "forks" (I like these because they have a flat top, which makes attaching items a lot easier)
My name is JoNeita Kelly and I have been crafting for at least the last 20 years. I live in Cedar Park, Texas with my son, Dallas. I love to craft and to continue to improve my photography and editing skills whenever I have free time. What I love most is telling our story using pictures, it is the most important gift I can leave my family.
