Be my Bridesmaid/Flower Girl

So my sister is getting married and she is the least creative person I know. She asked me as the Maid of Honor to put together some cards for her to give out to her Bridesmaids and Flower girls. But first a little background my sister has loved Elephants since long before I was born and we did a lot of playing around and idea getting from Pinterest and this is what I cam up with (it was all done at work on Photoshop Elements (Elements sucks it would have taken WAYY less time in Photoshop CC which I have on my home computer) because it was a SUPER slow day today.

I printed them 5x5 and since I work at a photoprint shop we removed any back printing and my sister will be writing a personal note on the back for each person. Lets hope everyone says yes and we have a fun wedding party!!

Baby boy quilt

So for once im actually remembering to post  my latest creation. So a family friend is currently pregnant with a baby boy. As cute as store bought baby things are I far rather the personal touch. So I decided I wanted to make a baby blanket, because who dosen't love their first blanket? I'm 23 and I still have my baby blanket. So I decided on granny squares with 2 shades of blue and had to use you tube to remind me how to actually do granny squares because its been so long since I've done them. The quilt is 9 x 11 squares in size (same size as my blanket was) and I lined it with baby blue cotton. im pretty sure I stole the show at the baby shower with it also because after it was opened everyone was asking me how to make it. Gotta love going homemade :)
For this quilt I ended up using 1.5 balls of Red Heart Light blue and 2.5 calls of Loops and Thread Impeccable Medium Blue. I also lined the blanket with knots so that when the baby is older the backing can be removed (it is more there so little toes and hands don't get caught in the holes)
