Nappy Cakes!!

Morning Peeps!!
How are ya'll this gorgeous sunny morning?!! I bet you all think I have forgotten about my blog over the last few days!! I have just been enjoying the last few days of the hols with Mo as he returns to school on tuesday :(


Last week I had a couple of nappy cakes to make!! The first one was easy peasy as I knew what the little baby was going to be and I had made a little book for baby's mummy and daddy to start filling up a couple of weeks ago Its Here if you haven't seen it already!)
I just followed to theme of the book for this one and added some cute little booties to the top to finish it off!! I love the bunting! it looks so cute!! you can just about make out the little white buttons at the ends of the twine.


Now onto the Gelfling's nappy cake!! The gelfling is one of my oldest and dearest friend's little bump and with 9 weeks to go, this little baby is still being fairly elusive as to what he/she may be!!! gelfling has had many scans to try and see and has become an expert inleg crossing, back turning and curling up so mummy and daddy are still not sure what sex gelfling is!!! romfl!! so I had to be a bit of a both sexes one! after thinking for 3 days what to do, I went with a blue, yellow and green kinda scheme using my DCWV nana's nursery stack to  make it with!! .......and I was still finishing it off when Leah arrived for a cuppa the other day!! :) so I didn't get chance to take piccies....luckily Leah did and I have stolen them to pop on here :) Love yah Leah :) !!!
I made the flower on top with my Tim Holtz tattered floral die and added a little button to the centre.
I am entering my little nappy cakes into the Allsorts challenge blogs Buttons and Threads challenge .

Right then, off to get myself dressed now. Ryan has got a football match this morning so Mo and I are going to walk the dog around the park while Ryan is playing and then the rest of the day will contain lots of vegging out!!! 

Thank you for popping in on me!! 
Huge hugs Lou xxx

Great nappy cakes Lou, it must be that time of year as I've made two this week but in the rush to get them done I didn't get chance to get pics, never mind next time.
Thanks for sharing your makes with us all.

Wow Lou, you have been busy and what super cakes you have made. Ive never done one of these but I can imagine it must be lovely to have been lucky enough too as there is nothing like a new baby to make you feel happy.

Love this! Lil' Gelfling, such a cute idea, loved that word so much when I heard it in The Dark Crystal. So sounds like the Swedish word elskling. Very cool idea x
