For my Hinged display tray I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Our oldest daughter is expecting our first grandchild and her baby shower is this Sunday.I wanted to make a gift tray, where the new baby's picture could be highlighted. You know those tiny hospital pictures? She does not want to know what she is having so I used " For Always- Paper package with a focus on the Honey and Lagoon cardock as accent colours which are gender neutral along with the black and white pattern paper. Yes this is perfect for any type of picture as black and white complement almost everything!  

I used the border strip of the pattern paper for the words(cut up to make a sentence) and the stamp set C1501- New Arrival-Occasions for the baby sentiment.The embellishments are also from For Always. I layered the flower and pop dotted many of the items. The diaper,silver diecut(cut from our new glitter paper) and words "Hello Baby" are from the Artiste Cricut cartridge. 
Now all that's missing is the picture of the baby! Coming next month !

This is one of her shower gifts... SHHHHHH
