New schtuff, no time...

I picked up my SU order. It wasn't huge but I still wanted to play! I had to run to Babies R Us to grab something off a registry before the invitations go out for my niece's baby shower. My hubby came along for the ride and I'm so glad he did. I bought the Pack & Play and boy was it heavy! I have no idea how I'm going to get it into the restaurant. And the wrap job, you would have died laughing if you saw us at the wrapping station. I was ready to strangle my husband. I am very picky and he was taping as I was folding up the ends and things started tearing, bumping, etc. I'm not happy with the results but I don't want to find huge wrapping rolls and do it over.

So, after I got home I started unwrapping my stuff. I love the dp but I need to figure out how to put the colors together. They're pretty light but they're colors I love. I was going to make a get well for my friend in MI who is having surgery tomorrow. I started off with So Saffron, put dp on top and the Bashful Blue didn't look great as a mat to my image. I feel like maybe the card has to be blue and the mat SS or Certainly Celery. I'll have to play some more. I was too tired at that point so I quit for the night.

Those pack and plays ARE heavy! We lugged ours around quite a bit, but it is such a terrific gift.

I was laughing out loud with the wrapping. My husband's idea of wrapping is a plastic or paper bag.

Yay on the SU-cannot wait to see what ideas you come up with next!
