Amy Jo's Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning, fabulous friends and welcome to Amy Jo's Birthday Bash & Blog Hop! We are so excited you could join us today to help celebrate Amy's birthday!

If you arrived here from Julie, then you are in the right place! If you just happened upon my blog today, please start at the beginning with Amy Jo because you don't want to miss out on the fabulous prizes that are being sponsored!

Amy Jo said she likes black, white and pink so I just had to make her a birthday card that incorporated all those colors.

Paper: Black and White Paper Pack II from Oriental Trading
Pink Daisy: I designed in Inkscape and used Studio G black glitter glue for the middle
Black Ribbon with Polka Dots: Graduation Printed Ribbon from Oriental Trading
Pink Ribbon: Spool Ribbon from Michael's

Thank you so much for joining us and helping us celebrate along with Amy! Your next stop is the talented Anita

Mason's Cards

Please read here about Mason.

After reading the struggles, my daughter and I decided we needed to make Mason some cards so we set to work. We decided to do the same card but to put our own twists on it.

This is my card...

This is my 7 year old daughter's card...

I showed her my scrap of paper, how to use my Cuddlebug and then let her go. She is one talented little lady. She even did her own inking on the edges of the dinosaur.

Dinosaur Card: SVG Cuts "Waterfall Cards"

Baby Blog Hop

Welcome to the Baby Blog Hop hosted by Sylvia. This blog hop is to celebrate babies and the joy they bring to our lives. If you've happened upon my blog, please start back at the beginning otherwise continue on from here.

All the projects I have done for the hop are to help lesson the burden of putting on a GREAT baby shower without breaking the bank. I know everyone is on a budget but that doesn't mean we don't want to give the mother-to-be a great baby shower.

BLOG CANDY: I am working with SVG Attic today and showcasing one of their files and they have been nice enough to sponsor my blog for this hop. At the end of my blog, there is a boy and girl svg file set and you can become eligible to win one of the sets by doing two things: 1.) Become a follower of Lorby's World and SVG Attic Blog 2.) Leave a comment letting me know you have become a follower, which set you would want to win, and an email to contact you.

Now let's put this baby shower together...

First is the baby shower invite: How cute to use this diaper that unfolds to give the guest all the details or if you want something a little more simple try this onsie invite on for size. (pun there)

Decorations can be as elaborate as you wish or just cute and simple. I made this "It's a Boy" banner and this cute little bootie favor. Make enough booties so that each guest has one and then fill it with yummies such as peanuts, and pastel M & M's.
 This can be used as a centerpiece for the gift or food table and if you take the cute little vehicles off or make extras you can use them to decorate a diaper cake.

I make diaper cakes but don't have any videos of mine so I found these directions on line. http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Diaper-Cake

You can get helium balloons for pennies on the dollar at the a party store of a dollar each at one of the dollar stores.

Then comes the games. I cut out a smaller version of the diaper invite and turned it into the dirty diaper game. Each guests gets a diaper when they arrive and they are not allowed to look at their diaper until later in the party. Have them open their diapers all at the same time and the one who has the "poop" in their diaper is the winner. I tied a yarn bow on this diaper so that it can be used with a safety pin and pinned to the person's shirt. You can glue the tabs shut on the diaper to make sure no one peaks until it's time or I used Blu Tack for mine.

Here is a site I have used for other game ideas: Baby Shower 101

Once the games are over, open gifts, eat and just enjoy each others' company. 

I used the file Baby Boy from SVG Attic.and here is the girl shower set too: Baby Girl

Thank you for stopping by today and don't forget to pick your favorite set from above. Now it's time to see what baby project Jamie has to share.
