Vacation Pictures and Baby Shower Card

Happy Friday, and yeah it is a 3 day weekend!!
I wanted to do a quick post, one to share a couple
of photos from my recent vacation trip to
the central coast of California, and 2nd to share a
recent project I made for a friend.
We were lucky enough to be able to
travel with one of our 3 Spoiled Dogs!!
This was her first visit to the beach and she loved it!! 
This is my sweet little Ginger.
 Isn't that the sweetest face ever!!
Ok, ready for more cuteness?
A friend at work asked me to make a
baby shower card using a penguin. 
The Penguin is from SVG Cutting Files
The card base and design elements are from
My Scrap Chick's Card Essentials 2 file.
Paper is from Doodlebug
Of course I added a sweet Peachy Keen face!!
Both sentiments are from CDD STamps
Sugar and Spice Stamp Set
You can but it HERE 
She was giving the Mom to Be a Gift Basket
So I made some decorations on dowels
to help dress up the basket.
The words are from Miss Kate's Cuttables.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you
enjoyed my pictures :)
