Build Your Own Cupcake Bar

This was a test run of a cupcake bar... Wasn't quite sure how it would go over, (or how messy it would be), but it was quite the hit. I had my 9 year old niece helping the little ones decorate the cupcakes. She was my cupcake manager :)

You could easily use regular cans of frosting, I did make mine- I will dig out my recipe for you all. It is tried and true, and I use it for all cakes and cupcakes. I had some large craft sticks to help apply the frosting to their cupcakes.

I just love the test tube sprinkles.

Oh yeah, and balloons make it better!

Elle's Studio October Projects

I wanted to share my projects for Elle's Studio this month!! Yes, Dante is going to be an UPS guy...he really wanted to be a trash can, but decided against it after he saw the trash cans at Home Depot, it was a sight!

Also, Elle's Studio is having their Design Team Search!! I have to say that it has been such an honor to be on the design team, and a wonderful experience. So, go apply!! Here are the details.

OOh, so last post you saw a project that I actually did for a Halloween party that we had! Of course, being behind as I am, I don't have any other pictures to show, yet... But, my pal Julie took some GREAT photos (and yeah, her blog rocks also:) Thanks, girl!

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #33

Challenge #33
Halloween Theme:
Create a project using any Halloween idea.
I used Paper Doll Dress Up to create the bats, and strung them with thread. The pom poms are so easy to make, I followed these Martha Stewart instructions.

Walk this Way

Yesterday I posted a fun little project on the Scrapbook Sussies blog...Scrapping multiple photos in a simple way. I have to say the picture of the two of them walking home is one of my favorites!

Before and After.
It was Audrey's first little performance, she just screamed and cried, but gosh it was still so cute:)

i LOVE CSN stores. recently bought a new coffee maker from them.

I have your email, and will be sending you the gift certificate!!

Thank everyone for taking part in this giveaway.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #31

On the Wall:
Create something to hang on the wall, vinyl, shadow box, sign etc...
I printed and cut the princess banner from the Best Friends cartridge for the Imagine. I would have liked to printed some background paper, but instead used some polka dot paper I already had. I got the frame at Goodwill for 80 cents (love to get frames there!) Now, to add the ribbons for the bow holder- just hot glue the ribbon directly to the back of the frame. Easy peasy. Happy Monday all:)
