Picture Frame for Bella


A while back I saw a frame on a blog that got me wanting to make one. I got the "blank" wooden frame at Michaels. I painted the edges and used scrapbook paper to cover it using Modpodge.




I painted and added the letter "B" gluing it on. 

 Then I used some pink chiffon that I had on hand to make a rosette for the upper right corner.

Then finished up by painting the back. I loved doing this and already have more planned for each grandchild.

Diaper Cake

I made this diaper cake using info from several blogs. I used almost 50 size 1 diapers. The diapers are rolled and fastened with clear pony tail holders and then grouped around a lemonade can and tied witha a small ribbon. I used fewer diapers on the second "layer" and even fewer on the top "layer. Wider ribbon covers the narrow ribbon.The lemonade can is secured to a cake board but the diapers are not "permanently secured so they can be used later. the only place it is glued to the diapers is to hold the teddy bear on.
