landscaping fun and baby shower color combination

As promised I took my camera back outside yesterday to retake the pictures I took yesterday. We finally finished off our flower bed with some gorgeous rock tumblers. If you missed pictures of the "in process" go here. And we are also loving our lights we purchased for out there. It's all ready for some furniture. We are counting down the days until it comes!

While we were in the process of buying rock we went ahead and purchased enough for the front as well. I think it makes it look "finished." My green thumb mother also took me around to all of my flowers to tell me how to make the best of them!
In crafty news, I'm working on some ideas for a baby shower my friend Christie and I are throwing for our mutual friend Shannon. Here's Shannon's description of her baby room:

"The colors are light yellow, sage green and brownish colors - like a natural theme. But I kinda have an animal theme too - just not cartoonish animals...actual photos I took. So modern but sweet, and no cartoons."

So I decide I would play off her colors. I'm actually pretty excited not to be making baby stuff that's not brown and blue or brown and pink. So here's my first set of color ideas:
#1, #2, or #3? I actually think at the moment I'm liking #3. It's certainly not baby, but it does kind of have a modern twist. I'll probably change my thoughts tomorrow. What do you think? I'd love some feedback.

I like your rock border! We need to put some serious time back into our yards to get them back into shape!

I like all three baby buggies! None of them are too cutesy. Looking forward to seeing what you decide on! :>

I like the last one too but i think the 2nd is my fav. The 1st one is pretty but i think 2 or 3 would be the ones for me! :)

I'm liking #3. It's fresh and fun and doesn't scream baby.

You guys have been busy!! The results look great! We have projects on the outdoors too. There are always projects around the house, aren't there?

As far as the cards, I've looked at them over and over, and I really cannot decide. Number 2 may have an edge, but that is subject to change because truly I cannot decide. Can't wait to see the final results. I have baby cards to make too. I need to get on it :)
