My first post! Teal and Brown Baby Shower for a Boy!

Hello! For my very first post, I will be showcasing the decorations and favors I made for my sister-in-law's Giraffe themed Baby Shower.  She's having a boy so I decided to do something different and used Teal and Brown as her baby shower colors, rather than the typical light blue colors often used for boy baby showers.

THE INVITE:  I used my Cricut and the New Arrival Cartridge (thanks Mari!) for the giraffe and letters on the front.  I used the cuddle bug to give the invite a pebbly-stony texture that reminded me of giraffe print.  The ribbon separating the giraffe and block letters I found at Joann's for $1.00!  It went perfect with the colors I chose for this Giraffe Themed Baby Shower.    
THE FAVORS: I bought white boxes from Michael's and decorated them with brown and light teal ribbon.  The onesies I cut with my Cricut and the New Arrival Cartridge.  The circle giraffe print I cut with my circle punch and left over scraps of animal print paper.

I used these Hershey Air Delights kisses to fill the boxes.  Don't the brown spots remind you of giraffe print?
