And Baby Makes 3

No, No, Not me, ROFL.  I have a friend/co-worker that is expecting her first baby.  She and her husband are so cute!!  She's due mid-July but has basically been told it could be anytime now.  So with little time to spare, I have finally finished their baby gifts!!!  They have been told it's a girl -let's hope it is!!! They have picked the name, Gabriella Sophia.  WOW!! Gorgeous name for what I'm sure to be a GORGEOUS little princess.  Now, here comes a warning for you....THIS POST IS PICTURE HEAVY!! If you want to stop and leave now...I completely understand, hee-hee. 
First, I embroidered some onesies with her name and a "beach" theme. And because I have this OCD thing I just can't traditionally wrap a gift, I had to think of a creative way to give it.  Gabriella's first handbag!  Come on, you're never too young to start collecting handbags!  I grabbed a pink one and embroidered her initials on one side and a cute little bear on the other. (I told you in an earlier post you would see these bears again! I just LOVE them!!).
Cute bear embellished with a butterfly and flower!

and more flowers!

Now for the fun part!  Beware - MANY pictures to follow!!!! This was a project that almost got tossed. After I cut the stroller I had a hard time trying to come up with ways to embellish it.  In fact, I came REALLY close to just throwing it away and making something else.  After letting it sit for about 3 days, I knew I needed to at least give it all I had.  OK, so you're probably asking yourself what the heck it is I'm talking about, LOL.....It's a baby stroller!!

Isn't it just too stinkin' cute?!  I actually like the way it came out, glad I didn't throw away!! It's the perfect size to put a trial pack of baby wash thingies in it:
I wish I could say I came up with this cut file, but alas, just not that creative.   I bought the cut file came from MyTimeMadeEasy.  Lauren is amazing, she can make anything out of paper! Ok, if you are still here, well, I appreciate your time! And if you have just a few minutes more, I'd appreciate hearing what you think about it!!
