How Convenient...

....that Dawn McVey's latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge just happened to be these colors!
I had already started on a baby card and had plans to finish up the gift this weekend when I saw her post and the colors matched pretty well with what I was creating!! One of my coworkers had a baby girl April 30 and I was in need of a small gift. I decided to use Scattered Showers to create a card, onesie and matching gift box and think it turned out sooo cute!
I used Lauren's Perfect Matchbox Timeless Template for the packaging. The onesie was created with Avery dark t-shirt iron-on transfer sheets, by stamping directly on the transfer sheets and then ironing on according to instructions. It all came together relatively quickly and I think Mom and Baby will be pleased.

Stamps: Scattered Showers, Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper: Smokey Shadow, Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, White CS; Text-style Pink Patterns (PTI)
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Smokey Shadow, Fresh Snow (PTI)
Accessories: Sweet Blush double stitched ribbon, Sweet Blush buttons, Black buttons (all PTI); Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Jumbo Eyelet, Slit punch (SU); Hemp Twine; Gerber Onesie; Dark T-shirt Iron-On Transfers (Avery);
My Timeless Template - Perfect Matchbox

And finally, I thought I'd share this cute pic of Dawn and I a few weeks ago in Kaanapali. Dawn and her hubby were on Maui for a few days while on a Hawaiian Cruise. Joel and I met them at Hula Grill in Kaanapali for a yummy dinner and then we all shared a Hula Pie from Leilani's on the Beach (and we literally sat on the ground on the beach, breaking our plastic utensils fighting over the oreo crust!!). It was so fun to spend a few hours with Dawn and her husband! She's such a cutie and so sweet (one of those stunningly perfect girls that you'd love to hate, but you just can't because she's too darn sweet!!). ha! Anyway, the beautiful sunset was a great end to a fun evening with new friends.

Oh goodness! The cuteness quotient is off the charts here!! I just love the umbrella on the onesie and can imagine any mom-to-be just loving the whole gift! :>

Wonderful project! And I love the new blog style. AND, I'm a bit jealous that you got to met Dawn and that she got to meet you!
