I know I've been absent

So sorry for being absent lately! Things have just been out of hand. First my MIL came to visit, then my grandmother with my sister. After they left, my oldest daughter caught a virus, then I came down with it! Then work got really crazy (still is), my grandfather passed away, and now my youngest has the bug! I'll be absent a little while longer too because I am flying this weekend for my grandfather's funeral on Monday. See, my grandparents raised my sister and me so they are like my mom and dad. Grandpa was in the late stages of Alzheimer's too so I have mixed emotions about his death.

The only project I have had time to finish were 35 baby shower invitations! When the girls and I were talking about throwing a shower, I KNEW I wanted to make the invites! I had the perfect stamp (Stampingbella's Teddybella) for them. I think I should have just made them a little simpler, but she LOVED them as did most of the guests so for that it was worth it. I used stickles for the bow on her belly and bear, glitter pen for the blue bag and copics for all over coloring. Paper is Paper Studio and Bazzil.

Thanks for looking! I hope to be back creating next week.
