Duck Dynasty Baby Shower - part1

The last big digi-scrapping project I worked on was back in September...
A Duck Dynasty Themed Baby Shower  for my youngest son and his fiance, and oh what fun it was!

The primary product I used for this baby shower was Quackers! by kimeric Kreations 
They had decided on pink, green and camo for the nursery colors after painting their crib green and our family is huge Duck Dynasty fans so this kit was just perfect!

I made the shower invitations and had them printed using free credits I had for 4x6 photos from Artscow as well as the diaper raffle tickets which we included in each invitation.  We got envelopes from Walmart for mailing them.  I also ordered pink tablecloths and and a few other shower items to qualify for the free shipping so everything was shipped straight to my home.

I printed out most everything else we used for the shower on our home printer:  games, prize gift tags, etc.

Finding images on the internet, I also printed out some posters and cards we used in keeping with our Duck Dynasty theme.

I also lucked out and found some Duck Dynasty items on clearance at Walmart which I used on the diaper cake I made using tutorials I found on Pinterest :

Dreama loved the diaper cake so well that she has kept it for decoration in Baby Bristol's room!

We taped Dreama's camo shower curtain to the wall as the backdrop for our Photo Booth, which definitely was the HIT of the shower.  Everyone loved it!  My sister-in-law brought her props and took many fun photos!
*More photo booth photos will follow in next post :)

 My oldest son (first picture below, with his wife ) made some of his famous smoked bbq for fabulous pulled pork sandwiches, while myself, as well as friends and family brought ham "sammiches" and other southern treats worthy of all Duck Commanders :)

The shower was very successful and every one left Happy, Happy, Happy.

Be sure to check out more photos of our baby shower in the next post,

I'm back!

I have neglected my blog for way too long, and have decided that it is time to get started again. I sincerely hope life has been kind to you and yours.   Its a new year and I have high hopes for my family and myself.   I have not made any new digi-scrap pages for many months now but hope to find the time to start making new projects soon.  My son and his wife gave me a sewing machine for Christmas and I have plans to renew my interest with that as well.  My husband and myself have started a weight-loss program together...yesterday was our first weekly weigh-in and I have lost 10.5 pounds Yay for me!!!!   We have a new Granddaughter, born this past October, and we are also looking forward to her Mommy and Daddy getting married this year!  So as you see, I have a lot to look forward in 2015, and I hope to make this blog my means of sharing some of it with you, my family, my friends and my fellow bloggers, so see you again soon if the Good Lord is willing and the creek don't rise :)
