Imagine the fun time we had when the 3rd graders had a baby shower for their teacher.  I laughed as I watched the boys get shy (or not shy!) as their cute teacher gave them a hug as a thank you for gifts.  And of course we had to play the dirty diaper game where they tried to guess the candy bar inside!

Supplies used: flowers unknown, all other supplies by CTMH: Let’s Get Together paper, Colonial White, Garden Green, and Cranberry cardstock, Cranberry ink, B1288 Solo 3 stamp set, and D1222 Tiny Typewriter Alphabet stamp set.  Layout inspired by CTMH Imagine book.


I just love this picture of my nephew saying “Arrrgg!”  All embellishments were obtained through a swap.  Papers by CTMH.
