A Cake To Share!

Hello All!

I wanted to share the Baby Shower cake I made for a friend at work!  She showed me a picture of a cake (pink & brown) and asked if I could do something similar in Blue & Green for her shower.  I think it turned out SO cute!!  I also made the blocks on top of the cake using paint, Cricut Expression & then I sealed them!

I also made these cupcakes for a going away party for my boss.  I made 4 flavors (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry & lemon) & used my Cricut Expression to create the little "garden" on top!

I am hoping to get more business making cakes from the shower cake... it was so much fun!!

Thanks for looking & have a great day!

Wanted to share some Heritage Pages

Hello All!

I wanted to share some Heritage Pages I've been working on.  While going through some photos my dad had given me a while back, I found an envelope that contained the photos from my grandparents' honeymoon in 1939!  I was SO excited!  So, I have decided to create an album of these photos.  I want to preserve these photos and pass them along to my girls!

I chose to use the original photos, using photo corners to add them to the page.  So, they are removable if the need ever arises.   This first page I think I've shared with you already, but I wanted to include it in this group. 

Thank you for looking!

Have A Wonderful Day!
