Planning a Surprise Baby Shower :: Shhhh...


I am in the works of planning a surprise baby shower for my sis. (No worries, she doesn't read my blog. I'm not even sure she knows I have a blog. LOL!)
My mission, is to create a fun, personal shower for her & her family along with my other 3 sisters & my Mom. She is the type of person who appreciates the little things rather than something off a gift registry.  My goal is to keep it under $100. including gifts, activities, decorations, & food. It's going to be a challenge, but I am up for it!

I have started out by making a few things to include in her gift basket. Because I was able to use items I already had in my scrapbooking stash & I had an instore credit to my LSS to use towards adhesive I am still at $0.00 out of pocket. 

I used some goodies from American Crafts, Crate Paper, & Bella Blvd to create this small notebook full of Bible verses...
















I also put together 20 Thank you cards with envelopes. When I was pregnant with Ella I made my thank yous beforehand and I was SO glad I did. That way I could stay ontop of sending them out. 



I have lots of other ideas I have been "pinning" and writing in my journal. I'll keep you all updated & will be sure to include pictures of the shower in mid March. 

Have a great weekend!
