Andrew Roberts is about to amaze you with his incredible set of Little Darlings shower favors! How fun would this be at a baby shower? We love each and every creation! Though Little Darlings is retired, think of the possibilities to create a similar set with Baby 2 Bride or Mother Goose, our current collections! He has banners, cupcake decorations, treat jars, gift bags, gift tags, and more below - how fun!

"The inspiration for this project was a previous creation that was called my Little Darlings chest . It was created to be a great gift and it prompted me to create some baby shower favors to go with it. It was also helpful that little darlings is my favorite graphic 45 collection.

TIP: My tip for multi part projects  is to ensure the embellishments and paper are distributed across all components to ensure project cohesion." ~Andrew

So existing! I love G45 . Sometimes I just spend time just flipping the pappads with a cup of tea and inspiration comes.

So many baby shower ideas. All of them adorable for a boy or a girl. Also the backpack would be great for a first date if school. Great ideas to try.

Great ideas for baby showers and a chance to win An Eerie Tale! My daughters birthday is October 31, so this is the perfect line for me!

Sometimes, I just flip through the paper pad touching the papers, it makes me happy! Am I sad?

Baby showers are year round and a gift card to Babies R Us is always appreciated. I love the picks easy and fast to finish a theme. Eerie night is wonderful for year round Movie Nights. My kids are old enough for Fright Night and they always seem to multiply if I feed them after dark
