WOYWW 450 and a Diaper Teddy Bear

I was MIA last week as I was in Georgetown, TX for our Fun Stampers Journey Leadership Conference.  I flew out O Dark Thirty Wednesday morning and got home early evening Sunday.  I absolutely had a ball! We had workshops and crafting time, a Texas Hoe Down (quite the dinner and learned to do basic line dancing), and lots of food and snacks.  But 2 weeks ago I said I would share my version of the Diaper Teddy Bear that I made for a diaper shower at church.  But first, since this is Wednesday I am taking part in the weekly blog hop of desks put together by Julia of the Stamping Ground.  So....  my desk.

This photo was taken yesterday afternoon.  I was working on completing 3 of our 4 projects at the conference.  Seems like when we work with glitter and other more messy products I prefer to wait until I get home. Here you see my planner on the left with the directions to the projects. And my 4th project is front and center ready to work on.  The green tool on the right is my Bloom Tool, very similar to the Tool-in-1 by Spellbinders but with more attachments.  Then my ATG adhesive roller and stamps sets I got at the conference. As to the back half, oh so much!  One highlight of our conference was meeting Brittany Young, the certified celebrator!  Talk about a fireball of energy! She is on FB and does oodles of crafts! I highly recommend you check her out!  FSJ partnered with her and so far I think it's great!

Ok, I bet you're ready to see my Diaper Teddy.  Ashley just loved it as did all the ladies at the shower.

I didn't use a lot of diapers but did use lots of rubber bands and pipe cleaners! Socks on the arms and legs, a pacifier, a wash cloth, and a little beanie for supplies and black card stock for the eyes and nose.  What a hoot!

So now please leave a comment and then head over to the Stamping Ground for the links to other desks!
