No baby shower is complete with a 'birth announcement' and a bib. I actually did a jungle themed 'birth announcement' for my cousin's baby, Olivia. But I do believe this one is cuter (sorry cuz). This one is made from the Stork and Baby file and I did it in pink of course for the little bundle.

Since I do not have a little one of my own (all mine are teenagers), I had to use the next best thing, my Cabbage Patch Kid, Cierra. She is modeling the baby bib I made using the Bear with Blocks file. I turned the bear into a tear bear, used felt for the outter part of the blocks, and did use paper for the letters. This was all attached to the bib using fabric glue.

The little decorative shoe is just for that, decoration. The shoe was cut with Close to My Heart's new Cricut cartridge, Artise, and the flower was cut with a punch out of Michaels. All card stock used in these projects is also Close to My Heart.
