Road Trip to a Fabric Shop

A few days ago I got in the car with my two children to meet my Husband who was away on a business trip to Monroe, Michigan.  I decided to explore a bit and landed on a new fabric shop, Lake Erie Mercantile. It's a fairly new shop {only six weeks old}, but ohhh so full of yummy fabrics! They have Amy Butler's collection of fabrics right at the entrance of the store. You could just imagine my expression, ha! As soon as I walked in I could recognize her Full Moon collection (dotted fabrics) and her Love Collection.

How could I say 'no' to the teal? Love it!!

I also bought fabric to make a new dress for my daughter. I chose Henry Glass for that.

Connie, the owner, also has a really good selection of Joel Dewberry, Michael Miller, and Robert Kauffman's fabrics. So pretty! I was so, so happy to be able to see all these fabrics in one store. It made the trip so worth it!

It's a Girl {Baby Shower Banner}

I made a baby shower banner for a friend using my Cricut. The banner says 'It's a Girl' in pinks, reds, and greens. I was really excited about making it and couldn't wait to get started on it. I used 'Nana's Girl Nursery' Paper, Storybook Cartridge for the font, and Cricut Sampler Cartridge to cut the different shapes. Plus lots of glue dots, scrapbooking tape, and ribbon.  
Here are a couple of pictures:

It was a really fun celebration and I was so honored to help celebrate her new baby.
