I am officially back with a cool Diaper Cake!!!

Happy return to reality day!!!! So my kids are officially back into the swing of things!!! Like homeschool and chores and getting up at 7:30 am and starting the day!! I personally think I am having more trouble than they are! LOL!!! I am bound and determined to start working out again this week. I will let you know how that goes!!
I know that I have been absent this summer but I did want to share with you all this really cool project that I was asked to do this summer for one of the ladies at church that were having a baby!!! Check it out.....

This has had to have been the coolest thing I have ever created!!! I cannot even believe that I made this!!! It was so much fun and I must say that I really learned about how the smallest little detail can really make a difference!!! Let me show you what I mean....

This is the cute little Monkey family that I put on the top of the cake theme for the shower was jungle animals especially monkeys so I thought this family was perfect for it. I used the Create-a-Critter cricut cartridge which I happen to think is one of the best ones out there. If you are new to the cricut and do not own this cart I encourage you to get it!! I actually won mine off of ebay for only $18.00 dollars!!! It was brand new of course it was also 3 O' clock in the morning but I was desperate. LOl!
Anyway I used the Michaels flocking powder for my monkeys so they were all fuzzy. It made them somewhat more realistic and then I wanted there to be a distinction between the mommy and daddy monkey so I had to add some bling to momma....
Don't you just love those earrings. And check out the rock on her finger!! LOL!! These were just little rhinestones that I bought from Micheals.
This project was so much fun. Here are some more photos of the details. Check out the Lions mane it is glitterfied!!!There was more but I couldn't blog forever. I hope you like it as much as I did. If you want more info on it just message me and I can give you the info!!
