Diaper cakes and more

My hand still has stitches in it so I can not color or stamp yet, just a couple more days and hello stamps and Copics. I have a baby shower coming up soon for a couple of ladies at work, one is having a boy and the other a girl, so I wanted to try to do diaper cakes and after watching some videos on I decided to try my hand at it, I like the way they came, I hope you do.

The diapers, toys, socks, 1" ribbon came from Walmart
the pacifers, wash clothes, bottles came from the dollar store.
the bottles are in the center of the cakes

This next is a layout I did of Calvin and Hunter, Meagan took him to visit his granddad and he loved all the big trucks.

Just a quick note to say hello and I will be back to crafting in one more week.
The stitches in my hand come out on March 3rd and I can't wait, I didn't relize how much I was gonna miss my working with my CTMH stamps and papers and coloring with my Copics.
I am not allowed to bend my wrist till after stitches come out and that is a really hard thing not to do so I wear my brace alot.

The scrapbook club meets on March 3rd.

Our card workshop will be meeting on April 8th so if you are interested just shoot me an email and I will get all the information to you. We still have a few openings.

just a note

I don't have any pictures to add just yet, I only got one or two things done in my crafting rm before getting things ready fo my second surgery.
I had my surgery on my right hand yesterday, Thank you to Dr. Nielsen over Charlottesville Orthopaedic center, hopefully this will work as good as the surgery on my left hand.
When the stitches come out I can go back to crafting, cutting, coloring with no pain, the carpal tunnel had gotton really painful and I am exicted the surgery is done, but for right now I can't use the right hand, which means no crafting for a bit.
I will be back soon with new cards and layouts for you to see.

Have a crafty day!!!!
