MPS May Family project

It's baby season in my family!!!!! I'm so excited. Not only will we have 2 new additions, but there are 2 girls at work that are also expecting! So here is what I came up with for this month's Family themed project

Pregnancy Survival Kit
The recipe for the outside is as follows:
New Arrival cart (5.5 mom)
A Child's Year cart (2 inch font)
Family and Friends Stamp Set by My Pink Stamper
me & my BIG ideas flower stickers

I used paper for all of this. I was a little nervous about paper not sticking properly, but the ATG 714 did wonders! It's held up nicely.

I layered the can with an assortment of colored tissue paper. The bottom layer includes some items for the moms such as socks, panty liners (for urine loss hehe), tea, stretch mark cream, hand cream, foot cream, etc. The top layer of the can includes some thoughtful items. I printed the following on a card and placed it in the can with all the items:

Tissue - Because now you cry during all the Hallmark commercials.
Antacid - To help your tummy forgive you for the little thing you couldn't pass up.
Rubberband - To remind you that you won't always be huge... You'll get to keep the stretch marks for the rest of your life.
Penny - To help start saving for that college fund.
Tootsie Roll - To help you satisfy that Chocolate craving.
Puzzle piece - So you won't forget that your life would not be complete without the precious little one that you are expecting

And the best part is that I was able to find EVERYTHING at my dollar store =D
