Baby Shower banner and a give-a-way

We've been really busy getting ready for Melanie's baby shower this weekend.  For weeks I searched on the internet and pinterest for ideas for baby showers and let me just tell ya that it was just too overwelming. I had a million ideas swimming in my head and I couldnt decide on a single thing.  So I finally stopped looking at all the wonderful ideas and remembered just a few things that I had seen and went with that. 
I'll share more about the baby shower after this weekend but for now here is what i've been working on.

I've been making a few of these tissue paper pom poms all week.. they are really simple to make and I think will look nice for decoration.   We went with just a basic pink and brown theme and i've used different shades of pink and brown for these pompoms.  I'm thinking I'll group them in threes. 

I sat down last night and made these banners.. the one in the back will have the baby's name on it. 
These were fun to make.   And I cant wait to make more for birthdays and other celebrations. 

And since I won a give-a-way recently  Im "giving it forward" and having a giveaway here ..  The "prize" will be  (1) banner with winners choice of colors and wording.    All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is

1.  become a follower and leave me a comment telling me that you did OR leave a comment telling me that you already follow. 

2.  Tell me what you would like your banner to say if you won .. doesnt have to be baby related. 

3.  aaaand I'll throw in an extra entry for you if you spread the word about my give-a-way.  Just leave a comment telling me how you shared. 

Thats THREE  chances to win.. Good luck !!

This give-a-way will end at midnight Aug 7th  and I'll announce the winner on Monday, August 8th.
