My co-worker Marlon and his wife just had a baby boy. I made them a diaper cake and here is a detailed shot of the cake topper. Normally, I put a stuff animal on top, but for some reason I couldn't find one that matched. And not matching is just unacceptable to me, lol. I improvised and I think it turned out darling.
I decorated the cake pretty simple and I try not to go over board when I make things for guys. If you'd like instructions on how to make a diaper cake, below are the links to Susan Liles's blog. You'll see that Susan usually does the baby name in chipboard in a banner down the cake. Since I don't know what Marlon named the baby, I decided on 'boy'. If I would of had a spare 'b' in my chipboard stash...I probably would of gone with 'baby'.
You all have to be proud of me...I used up the last of this old CTMH paper pack that I've had for years. Sweet Leaf is my favorite color, so it was hard to part with. But glad to have more room for new paper. Plus, I don't really use 12x12 paper much anymore.
I hope you all have a great Monday...it's back to work for me! PS...3 more week and the Bachelor will be back!
