HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY GODMOTHER

Happiest birthday wishes to my God~Mother. To celebrate I made her this paper cake.
Each slice of cake is actually a box that contains chocolate. Hershey's has recently come out with a 'birthday line' that has fun festive wrappers and the kisses have fun celebration words on the flags.
This cake was a lot of work but how fun huh? This would be such a great idea if you host a party and then at the end, you could send everyone home with their own 'slice' to have later. Or you could easily just made a single slice to help celebrate someone's birthday as well.
Thank you so much for looking. If you see my God~mother today, wish her a happy one. :)
A big thank you to My Scrap Chick for the use of the pattern.

GETTING MY EARS PIERCED

Hi again everyone. I wanted to share another one page layout with you all. Look how special this is...
I love when little girls get their ears pierced and their Mom takes pictures(or video) to document such a special day. It is when these 'big girls' can now wear grown up pierced earring and it should be a big deal. 
Look how cute she is still on that stool and those earrings are adorable.
I love this gun. It is perfect!!! Thanks so much for looking.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Has anyone seen this movie yet? I am dying to but not sure my husband is willing to go with me :)
I made this one page layout of the Beauty and her Beast. Both patterns are from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
Here is a close up of these couple. Belle is made from just plain cardstock but he is made from cardstock and mulberry paper.
Thanks so much for looking. If you have seen the movie, I hope you enjoyed it.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY

Hi everyone. Happy St.Patrick's Day. Are any of you going out to celebrate today? It is actually my brother-in-laws birthday so we will be staying in to celebrate with pizza, cake, and ping pong :) But I do want to share this adorable card that I did make for my Irish husband...
How adorable is she? This is what I hoped my little girl looked like if I had a little girl.
Look at that hair!!!
Here is a better shot of the cluster...it has a four leaf clover on the base with a green sparkle heart on top. Then I added a claddagh ring, a gold coin and a shamrock. Other than a beer, it doesn't get more irish than that. Thanks so much for looking.

BLESSED BEYOND MEASURE

Hello everyone. We are getting ready for the blizzard coming our way here in New England. But before all that snow comes, I wanted to share some bright cheery thank you cards I just finished up.
How great are these? I have had this pattern for a long time. This is from My Scrap Chick. I think it was intended to be used as a Thanksgiving Day card but I thought it was so appropriate to show my gratitude for some birthday gifts that I received earlier in the month.
Thank you so much for looking. Come back tomorrow for another great project. I plan on being 'snowed' in and can't wait to see all the fun stuff I get done.
