Alison’s baby bash

Welcome to the one of a kind, super duper fabulous online baby shower.

We are gathered here, dear bloggers, friends and all around great people, to celebrate soon to arrive new baby boy of the one and only Alison from Mama wants this.

Reason is simple really. We all adore Alison. If we could drop everything and hop on the plane right now to see her, spend the afternoon in Malaysia throwing her a cupcake eating, gossip talking and tea sipping baby shower, we would. But there are not enough daily flights to Kuala Lumpur to take us all there, so we are doing this bloggy style ( not to be confused with…never mind).

This party is so monumental it is happening in three time zones. Ado The Momalog is hosting a LINK YOUR FAVORITE BABY PHOTO AND QUOTE bit of the party. Erica, the creator and curator of Yeah Write is hosting the GUESS THE BABY SCRUMPLET’S BIRTH DATE, WEIGHT AND LENGHT bit of the party. And right here we are pinning something or somebody down for Alison and Scrumplet.
Seeing how PINTEREST is the theme on my blog, let me start by sharing my find for Alison.

This is my gift to you dear friend. You have been my longest bloggy buddy, my first guest list maker and an all around modern pen pal. I know you are Pinterest mad and we have created a board for you which I will fill up with every pin that is linked to this party. I will then post it for you on Friday to see.

The little pin I know will come in handy with the new baby is:


A simple and candid photo idea you can even take with your phone after the scrumplet is born. I know posed baby photography is becoming very popular but I think simple moments caught are the ones with real impact.
Your turn: find something you wish to gift to Alison and add it in your post. Add this cute button

and link it below. I will make sure Alison hears about her gift. Promise.

You can also post a photo of you as a baby or one of your babies, then add a little quote like this:

Little J baby
that links to Ado.
And if you place your guess on Scrumplet like this:

Arrival date May 2nd 2012 . Weight 3.74 kg and Lenght 51cm.
Possibly the cutest baby ever born on the right side of Planet Earth.

you enter your odds at Erica’s too!
Now that my friends is how it is done.
Happy Birth Day little Scrumplet, we cannot wait to ‘meet’ you!
Very official rules: All are invited. It helps if you know Alison, but it is never too late to become her fan. You may join all three, two or just one of us in this celebration. No hard feelings if you skip pinning and go straight to guessing weight. Oh and play nice and check other bloggers gifts. It’s karmically correct and how things are done at posh baby showers anyway. You may follow the Alison’s baby bash board on Pinterest too. For those of you not on Pinterest, please add an image of your find to the post and I will pin it for you.
