Want to learn how to make them?
Do you feel like I'm totally stalking this blogger and her lemonade party this week?
Cut out a shape on heavy weight cardstock with your whole punch.
(I'm pretty excited because I already own the scalloped whole punch she used)
You're actually going to use the leftover frame and not what you punched out.
Secure it to your glass with adhesive.
Add a sticker to the inside.
She used felt stickers because they were reusable.
Using a paint brush, dab on the etching cream as directed on the bottle.Play around with different shapes and designs until you achieve your desired look.

And for a more personal update...
I had my 36 week ultrasound a few days ago and learned the first important lesson in parenthood...BabyGirl does what she wants.
We've scheduled a c-section for the end of the month.
So NOT my first choice, but all a part of God's plan for us. He knew this was best and I'm not fighting it or being sad over missing out on the whole birthing a baby thing.
After all, I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' no babies.
(name that movie Ashley B.)
My mom, on the other hand, had three kids, all of which were very late. We're talking like over two weeks late because back in the day they had no repect for the mama and her trauma. My dad told her it was because we forgot to read the baby books to see how and when to be born.
I'm pretty sure BabyGirl read What to Expect and then decided she'd be different.
I also like to think that she just decided to snuggle up closer to my heart.
She didn't want her pretty little face to get all squished or have her momma break a sweat. This way we both get to sit back and relax while the paid professionals do all the dirty work.
If any of y'all have any c-section advice, don't hesitate to share it. If you think its too gorry just send me an email. I can take it!
