We got her good..I Hope!!!

Well now that the baby shower is finally over I can post some pictures of what I made for Lisa and my DN baby shower. I don't think she was too surprised because there is always someone in the family that just can't keep secrets, but as long as she was happy and like all of the hard work that was put into we are happy.
Here is a diaper cake that I made with Pamper Size 2 diapers. They are having a boy and are huge NY Yankees fans ** Although they lost real bad this yeah lol** This cake is about 75-85 diapers. I used a navy blue floral ribbon and a baseball ribbon. The baseball was cut @ 3 1/2 in on my cricut. White is on shadow setting and the red piece is normal. Each tier is wrapped with an organza ribbon that was about 2 1/2 inches wide to simulate "frosting".
For the table centerpieces I cut 12x12 pieces of Styrofoam and covered them with fake grass rug. I cut the field @ 11 inches, to use a template and painted the field lines with white acrylic paint. I bought small wooden dowels and drilled them into the foam. I cut 2 babies @ 2 1/2 inches using the NA cartridge and my cricut, the score was cut using the baseball solutions cart @ 3 1/2 inches and the catchers mask was cut @ 2 inches also from the baseball solutions cart. The 2 baseballs were cut from left over ribbon from the diaper cake. To finish it off I added baby blue stickles to each babies diaper.
We bought small blue candle baseballs that said It's a boy and I just added tags I cut with my TBBM cartridge @ 4 inches and a baby face from NA @ 2 inches. The labels are clear mailing labels from staples.
