While I was able to make the shower for Colby's little boy one week after our wedding, I will miss out on the sprinkle for her daughter :( Although I won't be there in person, I am happy to take part in her alphabet collage.
On the back of the shower invite every guest was assigned a letter with no rules on shape, size or style. The host only asked that the letter coordinate with one or more of the colors on the invite. I think this is the cutest idea and after a quick stop to Michael's I was ready to get started on my letter "Y".
I wanted to do a little more than just paint the letter, so I opted to cut Frog tape into circles for the polka dot effect.
Once all those little circles were placed it was time for a little Martha Stewart Glitter paint.
And by a little, I really mean a lot. It took a good 6 or 7 coats to get to the shade of pink that I was going for (or, you know the color on the store plaque in front of the bottle).
As you can guess, I finished this last night so the glare of the light doesn't do the glitter justice.

I hope Colby and her daughter enjoy this "Y" and I can't wait to see a picture of the whole collage put together!
Have you seen or taken a part of any cute baby shower ideas?
