Projects of the Week: Baby Shower Cake, Baby Room Wall Art and Maternity Pictures!

I  have been a very busy girl this past month, and I am just getting around to posting some of the projects I have been working on! All the projects revolved around my friend's Monica's baby shower. I posted her baby shower invitation I created in an earlier blog, and now I will show you all the other projects I worked on for her!

First I will show you the cake I made her. I made the cake from scratch (white cake, butter cream icing and a strawberry butter cream filling), and I was very happy with the taste. It was a HUGE cake that had to ride 4 hours in the car with me in the middle of August in Louisiana! Even though it was hot outside, I managed to get it there just fine!

I wanted to put the paisley pattern that was on the invitation on the cake as well, but there was no way I was going to spend all that time piping icing to do it. I decided to send a jpeg of the pattern to be printed on edible cake stickers at http://www.fillyourheartediblememories.com/.  It was really easy to use and recommend it if you have an image you want on a cake!

Monica wanted me to make some wall art for the baby's room that spelled her name. Using the same paisley theme, I printed out sheets of the pattern and was able to trace and glue the images to letters I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I added some paint to the sides, a layer of mod podge over the top and some ribbon to the back. It was super easy and made an awesome addition to the baby room!

While I was in Bossier, I also took Maternity pictures for Monica of her and her husband, Josh!

It was a lot of fun working on all of these projects for Monica! I can't wait to meet her little baby girl in October!

In other news, I wanted to mention that this blog is officially one year old!

My first blog post was on August 30, 2010. So far, I have posted 46 times and have shared over 30 projects! I have very happy with those numbers! I am looking forward to sharing more projects with you over this next year! I excited about the upcoming fall and Christmas seasons because I always have fun projects to do around then! Also I can't wait for it to COOL OFF! :)

Have a great weekend!
