Frog Themed Party: Labels and Signs

I was racking my brain Sunday night trying to think of something that would make a good Monday morning post.  I haven't done any projects lately.  My spring cleaning has been mostly on hold since I've been spending that time at the hospital with my mom (I know how incredibly boring it can be at the hospital between visitors!).  

Then I remembered that I've never posted the signs and labels I made for Baby T's shower!  I don't have pictures of them in use, so instead these are screen shots of my files.  I hope they inspire you!  The fonts I used are Cry Kitty and Oh {Photo} Shoot!, and all graphics are from The Graphics Fairy (see my original baby shower post for links to the exact images).

This sign, printed on baby blue card stock greeted guests as they entered the church.  I wondered if it was too cheesy, but the baby's new aunty assured me it was perfect.
These lables, which were about 1.5 inches by about 3 inches were the food lables.  I printed them on the same blue card stock, cut them out, then glued them onto tent cards made of olive green linen-textured cardstock.  I love that colour combination!
This arrow sign was placed on the third floor just outside the elevator doors.  I love this arrow.  It's actually a weathervane image, but I removed the extra stuff to turn it into just an arrow.
These signs are self explanatory.  I made these ones on the afternoon of the shower, after having decorated the room in the morning.  They weren't sure whether they were going to make regular coffee or just decaf, so I made another decaf sign just in case.  Actually, I think they didn't end up using the coffee signs at all.  The new mama is well-loved in the church, so it was a huge shower!  We had to have the food tables in the hallway.

Special thanks to those who have voiced your concern for my mom.  She continues to improve, and is now on new medication to help keep her back from fracturing further (Lord, please deliver me from ever getting osteoporosis!)  We still have no idea when she'll be getting out or where she will go when she does.  But things are looking up as far as I can tell!
