My Time Made Easy - March Release Day...err...day late :|


Hi all!  I'm FINALLY posting my project that was due yesterday for MTME's March release!  I had to finish up some digi paper business yesterday before I could enjoy finishing my project, photographing and typing my post.  SO, here I am...a day late, BUT a baby gift ahead in preparation for a shower this Saturday!!  Can't scoff at that...I'm rarely ahead :]
I got to use the Card Catch All for my project yesterday.  I decided that two of them without the interior dividers would make an AWESOME little baby supply caddy!  Something the new mom can keep on hand in that part of the house that isn't the baby's room, to have essentials nearby. 
So, I packed the back with diapers, and the front with basic supplies and tools. ...and some cutie patootie hair barettes :] (yes, she's having a girl)

For my template, I printed some of my digi paper from the Bringing Home Baby Girl collection so that I could have the look of stitching without having to thread a needle.  I also used the new Random Ribbons cut file I created for my zig zag strips down the sides of the dp.  Neat, huh?  I love how the ribbons turned out :] 

How about those tags on either side?  That, my friends, is a cut file (So Sentimental Frame) and a stamped frame that fits perfectly.  I used the narrow SU! oval punch for my sentiment...nice fit, huh?
The ribbon is May Arts and the butterflies are also MTME cut files, Flutters and Flowers.  The pink pearl rhinestones are from Michaels (Recollections).  Buttons are from my stash.
The tag is a cut file that was released yesterday also.  It's from the Tag You're It files.  I added a handmade, distressed flower with leaves, some zig zag Random Ribbon, and stamped the buggy from You've Got Mail (last month's release) and the sentiment from All A Flutter (Jan release).

I just love the color combinations we chose this month!  They can be all baby or all boy or all girl!  ...or even a neutral combination.

That's all I have for you today, but be sure to check out Lauren's blog if you didn't come here by way of her...she'll list a LOT more info regarding the release and some amazing projects!  Give the other DT girls a shout also...they've come up with some jaw dropping, inspirational projects!!  Links are in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by :]

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!! I love how you decorated it and added the tags to the sided. I love that you used an older "bfly" set for BABY! I love the ribbon bows attached to the top too. That is way cute. Love that paper-my fave!! I am crazy about this being adhered together like that too-it looks so elegant.
