One more post today :)

Just finished this baby cake for a shower tonight. It's a double shower for two cute ladies in our ward. One is having a boy and the other just had a girl. I got to do the girl cake (hope that's obvious).

Here is a close up view of the top. My daughter (I guess I should say my apprentice - she has decided she wants to learn how to decorate cakes) helped make the fondant bow and she punched out all of the cute fondant flowers. Hope the new mom likes it!

June Fun

I have actually found a few minutes since school got out to sit at my desk and play with paper! Here's what I've been up to:

Still working on my oldest son's scrapbook. This photo was from July 4, 2002. All the kids put red, white, and blue gel in their hair (well, all but the oldest - he was too mature for that - ha ha). I had fun making a little backdrop and shooting photos.

I totally cased this layout from my talented friend Susan. She did a great 12x12 of her son and I adapted it for 8 1/2 x 11.

Supplies: Cricut cartridges (Accents & Elements and Don Juan), Cardstock (Stampin'Up), Ink (Stampin' Up), Ribbon (Michael's), Pattern Paper (old scraps)

Also made Father's Day Cards:

Supplies: Cards (DCWV), Stamps, Ink and Ribbon (Stampin' Up), Cricut Cartridge (Opposites Attract)

This project was my favorite so far this month. I had a friend having a birthday and made this little goodie bag for her:

It was so fun to make and embellish and was just the right size for some girly things: lotion, lip gloss, a room diffuser and some chocolate!
Supplies: Pattern Paper, Ink, Die Cuts & Ribbon (Stampin' Up), Stamp (Autumn Leaves), Fiber (source unknown)

Last but not least, I had fun making this Masquerade Birthday cake for a client last week. We went to High School together and recently got back in touch (got to love FaceBook). Her daughter was turning 13 and wanted a masquerade theme. She told me the colors her daughter wanted and let me have fun! I think it turned out pretty cute :)

Birthdays and Chores (summer must be here!)

Since today is the last day of school and since there are 4 birthdays and a wedding in the next two weeks, AND since I am a wonderful mother (tee hee), I let the kids come home and just do nothing today. I spent a few hours in my craft space making cards and a special present for the kids.

These two are for my Sis in law and my brother who share the same birthday:

Supplies: Wild Asparagus paper, Cardstock (stampin up), jewels and Fiber(unknown), embossing strip (Cuttlebug), Stamp (Autumn Leaves), Ink (Stampin Up)

Supplies: Cardstock (stampin up), P Paper (Wild Asparagus), Cricut (Celebrations and All Mixed Up), Ink (Stampin Up)

A the special gift for my adorable children:

A brand new shiny chore chart! I'm trying to avoid confusion, whining and losing my sanity this summer. Everyone has 2 daily chores and 1 weekly chore and they will rotate weekly. I even included my toddler. Once their daily circles are moved to the complete row then they can go play, use the Wii etc.

Just a close up of the side:

Supplies: Simply Scrappin Kit (Creative License, Stampin Up) Ribbon (stampin Up) Cricut(Opposites Attract and All Mixed Up Cartridges).

Happy Summer - let the work begin :) Hopefully I can get the other birthday card and Wedding card finished tomorrow.
