It's a {WHALE} of a tale :baby shower:

Hi Crafters,
The new challenge for Cut it Up! is something wet. It can either wet all the time or can get wet.

This challenge fit perfectly with the baby shower I hosted a few weeks ago for a co-worker.  This was the first girl baby shower I've thrown in over 3 years (since my niece was born)! The nursery is a beach theme with whales and surf boards.

I used the cuttlebug on her card. I used the 2.5x2.5 mini baby folders on each strip of paper.  
I made a variation of this invite for her shower.  I ended up not doing the double layer and only using the light aqua color for the whale.  I embossed the background purple piece with the cuttlebug.

This is the name canvas I created for her gift.  The surfboard and whale are both from Life's a Beach the lettering is from Songbird (script) and Opposites Attract (up right).  I used a 12x24 paper from K&Company for the surfboard and accents.  The whale is embossed with the cuttle bug.  I stitched around the outside of the surfboard with my sewing machine with green thread.
The banner pennants came from Birthday Bash and the font is from Life's a Beach. 

I hung whales from the loft and chandelier with fishing line (one of my craft room must haves).
