Pink, Pearls, Ribbon and Candy

Hello Maggie Fans,

I can't believe March is over. Time just flies. In one month we are expecting the arrival of our first grandchild! No one know whether it is a girl or boy not even the parents themselves. So for her baby shower I decorated her table with both Pink and Blue.

Below is a photo of my DIL. Do you think it is a girl or boy?  I know let's have some fun. Her due date is May 1st. If you want to play along here is what you need to do:

1. Become a follower if you are not already (I would like to reach 250 followers. I hope you will play along)
2. Guess the due date
3. Guess the sex of the baby

Here is what the person who gets the due and sex of the baby correct. Now we may end up with the closet date. A $20.00 gift certificate to Magnolia Licious plus a special gift from me.

I created this Tussie Mussie using Pion Paper (my most favorite). The embellishments I added were pearl trim, pearl bling, flower trim, ribbon, tulle trim, resin and chipboard goodies. For Magnolia Stamps I chose Little Cute Tilda and Flower Basket. Tilda skin and hair were colored with Copic Markers and her outfit and ribbon I stamped on the DP.

A Closer View:
