Some of you might remember last year around this time I was working on projects for the my God-daughter/niece’s wedding. I’m thrilled to announce that she is going have a baby in September. Recently we my family gathered for a gender reveal celebration and we were all happy to learn that it is a boy!
I had the honor of being the very first to know the gender since I had to prep the canvas and fill the balloon with colored water. Thank goodness they handed me the envelope only a couple of hours before, the knowledge would have been so tempting to share!
You can see the emotion on my sister’s face to learn she’s going to be a grandmother to a boy! We all shed a few tears of joy.
Congratulations to Alexandra and Brandon and their baby boy!
My sister and I have been pinning so many things on Pinterest as we get ready for the baby shower…and she’s due in September!
My cousin’s daughter Rachael is having her 4th child and 3rd daughter! To celebrate this joyous occasion my cousin Leslie threw her a Baby Sprinkle. Here are a few pictures of the event. I have to say that Leslie outdid herself as usual and hosted a great Sprinkle!

A proud mama looking on to her child as she thanks her guests.
Sisterly love, Rachael and Monica.
What a spread!
What’s a party without a cake!
Here’s the card I made for Rachael, I was inspired by Sandy Hancock’s card.
A few more hearts
My gift was a bouncy spinner baby thingy and I had it shipped to her house. I wanted her to see what I got her so printed a copy of it and had it dangle from the top of the inside.
A mother’s Love!

Last weekend I had a wonderful time at my cousin’s daughter’s baby shower. My cousin Leslie outdid herself again with the decorations for her first grand-daughter! Below are pictures of the beautiful cake and souvenirs in addition to my handmade gifts for the parents to be.
The cake table was exquisite!
This dress form was decorated with moss and pink nail polish.
Candy bars with lots of tulle and a rhinestone crown!
Wow, what a cake!
These are the handmade gifts I gave her.
I decorated pink folders with My Digital Studio. Each folder has labels with important information for Baby Sophia Leslie as she grows up.
Each folder was decorated with a different Designer Paper from My Digital Studio
I didn’t leave the father-to-be out! He received a “Daddy Doody Kit”!
In case of emergencies!
My other cousin Sonya who happens to be one of my downline made this beautiful framed present using the Dress Up Frame Lit.
Apparently we are a talented group!

I was visiting my sister in Puerto Rico and celebrating her daughter Ashly’s baby shower. As Hispanics and Puerto Ricans we celebrate everything big! I made a few favors and decorations using My Digital Studio and my niece’s sister in-law made some awesome displays for the table centerpiece and the gift table.
This was my baby shower gift, 13 Onesies! I designed it on “My Digital Studio” and printed them on iron-on transfer paper. The first one says Just Born in Spanish “Recien Nacido” and the baby’s name. The next 12 have months 1 – 12 on them. An easy way to document each month with a picture!
- The baby shower took place in an event hall (I did mention that we celebrate in a big way) this sign was hung in the entrance.
I made a scrapbook where guest signed in upon entering and could also write some advice for the new parents.
My niece’s sister-in-law made this beautiful display with a few of the gifts. Wow!
The cakes with a few Monkey tags I made.
Cupcakes with more monkey tags.
The congratulations sign was also made with My Digital Studio, it was so easy!
This cute sign says Let’s monkey around and take a photo with my parents, in Spanish of course!
While in Puerto Rico I was able to visit with my father, he was happy to be celebrating the future arrival of another great-grandchild!
Here is one of the table centerpieces in green.
The other table centerpiece in blue.
Here are a few of the favors I made.
My father and niece.
The happy parents!
My sister, niece and my brother-in-law.
