I am SO excited to be heading north to Hudson, WI for the weekend! It's about a 5 hour drive and I picked up a Maeve Binchey audio book for the road. I'm heading up to see my bestie, Wendy and celebrate her first grandchild who is due in June. I remember making this trip to see Wendy's first born - it's hard to believe we've been friends long enough for her to be a grandma! Let me share with you what I made for the baby shower.

I had so much fun with all of this! The card is a step card that I CASEd from Windy Ellard and Lisa Ann Bernard, members of the Pals community. Do take note of the photo's background - I crocheted a blanket for the baby too. Did I mention that it's a girl??

The card features Something for Baby. The coordinating Baby's First framelits make cropping these delightful images a snap. Wondering how I got multiple colors on one stamp? Stampin'Write markers came to the rescue! Did you know that Candy Dots make perfect drawer knobs? I created a custom sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board and the Bravo stamp set. I can't wait to see new mom Kailey's expression when she sees it.

My FAVORITE of all of the items I made are the party favors!

Are these too cute or what? Brenda Quintana is the queen of tutorials for Hershey kisses and I've been waiting for someone in the family to have a baby shower so I could make them. My handy dandy little stapler was the perfect tool to attach the toppers to the bag. I hope others like these as much as I do.

My baby gifts are wrapped, the boys favorite treats are ready for delivery.I can't enter St. Croix county without Special K bars. I've been making these whenever I visit for as long as the boys can remember. They are now both married, but still look forward to these bars.

Special K Bars
Start with 6 cups Special K cereal in a large bowl. In a pan, combine 1 cup of white sugar with 1 cup of white corn syrup and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter. Mix until smooth and pur over cereal. Coat cereal with peanut butter mixture and spread into a 10 x 15 pan. Melt one bag of butterscotch chips and one bag of milk chocolate chips. Spread the melted chips over the bars. Cool, cut and enjoy. They are very rich, but the boys can eat 6 at a time and head back for more!

The shower is Saturday afternoon, but I'm especially looking forward to the Saturday night pajama party when both boys and their wives will be spending the night. Oh what fun!

If you have any questions on any of the projects, leave a comment and I'll be sure to follow up with you.

Thanks for stopping and until next time, take gentle care.
