Gingerbread Diaper Cake

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday! 
I am happy to say I will be enjoying a day off from work to spend some time with my coffee buddies. I also plan to do some holiday baking and finish up some gift wrapping. I may even have time to sneak in my craft room!
I have a fun little project to share with you today:) 
I was asked to make a diaper cake for my daughters friend who is expecting a little baby girl in January. Her family was throwing a baby shower and wanted a diaper cake made to go along with a winter/gingerbread theme. They planned to have a chocolate bar with hot cocoa, peppermints, candy canes and gingerbread cookies. The diaper cake was going to be the centerpiece for the chocolate bar. Cute idea, ha? 
* *I also wanted to play in some of the current challenges so I thought I would keep that in mind when creating this:
I started with a box of Pamper Diapers and created 3 layers for the cake. There are several you tube videos for diaper cakes which is where I got the directions. You do need 2 bottles for the center and any type of baby supplies/toys for the outside. I used baby lotion, baby wash and baby shampoo and filled in with candy canes.  I decorated the cake levels with brown card stock and then some pretty ribbon from Michael's.
The house is a cut file from the Silhouette Store #70313 Miss Kate Cuttables and cut on my Cameo. I added a little doodling, sparkling ice glitter and a little Wink of Stella to the pieces. The gingerbread girls are also a cut file # 51720 from Miss Kate Cuttables and adhered in place.~I believe I made 13.  I forgot to take photo of the back but I did a big bow on each level with the same peppermint candy ribbon~turned out super cute :)
The gingerbread topper is holding a banner that was created with My Craft Spot's Ribbon Banners metal die and the sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's Gift Card Sentiments
I finished by sprinkling some twinkling snow for a fun look :) 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Love Rubberstamps Challenge #131 Holiday Blitz~Anything Goes
2.) Silhouette Challenges Challenge#20 Anything Goes
3.) Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge #196 Christmas Carol Inspired (White Christmas)
4.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #90 Anything Goes
5.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party~Christmas
