Sweet Thing

I gotta tell ya, this Creative Cafe Kit of the Month for May really really rocks.  Hardest part was narrowing down the products for just 4 posts for the month. I decided to create a card from a scrapbooking layout sketch I saw on Pinterest.  The collage paper and stickers from Melissa Francis (included in the kit) were perfect for accomplishing the look.  



Head to The Rubber Cafe for details.

Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday!

I love those cupcake boutiques you find in quaint towns or even in the mall!  Chocolate cake with peanut butter would be my favorite choice!  I do shop with my eyes when I walk into a cupcake store, who doesn't!  The last time I went with my chum, I got an Elvis cupcake.  It was banana cake with PB frosting.  Yup, it was to die for!  But so are these stamps.....

I have been creating again with this months Creative Cafe - Kit of the Month through The Rubber Cafe.  How Sweet it is, is a yummy collection of Melissa Francis papers and stickers, Queen & Co. pearl enamels and black twine, and The Rubber Cafe's exclusive stamps, Make Life Sweet.  Here is my second card created with this collection.



Thanks for stopping by.  Go get a cupcake!

Third Grade Biography and Typical Expression

Today I have two layouts over on eclectic Paperie's blog. 

The first is of Bubba doing research for his third grade biography.  He wanted to do a sports figure but we assumed that is what all the other kids were going to do.  So, off we headed to the library to research possible war hero biographies.  He was attracted to the Green Berets books but decided to report about Norman Schwarzkopf.  He can actually spell this guys name!!  I had to use spell check! 




The second layout is of Bub's typical facial expression.  






These layout were created using eclectic Paperie's kit of the month.  Although the kit is packed with amazing goodies, a little flair from A Flair for Buttons never hurts!

Thanks for stopping in.

You can't buy happiness....

Today I have shared this layered card over at The Rubber Cafe.  This months Creative Cafe Kit of the Month - How Sweet it is, is full of scrumptious stamps.  Who doesn't love ice cream? Cake? Cupcakes?  





Although this looks complicated, it is just layering papers backed with foam tape for dimension.  It is supper easy!  So, head over to The Rubber Cafe for the ingredients!

Loving All of This!

Sharing a layout over at A Flair for Buttons.....

Today I have created a simple layout highlighting two of my best friends, Milford and Flo.  I love these muted colors with a splash of yellow, paired with a few flair, chipboard hearts, machine sewing and enamel dots.

Call me

I can not believe I never shared this card with you all.  It was a couple days after my surgery so I guess I never scheduled the post.  Anyway, it is created using The Rubber Cafe's - Creative Cafe KOTM club.  




Thanks for stopping in!

Lunch with Pals

Hey there.

Just complete a blog post for eclectic Paperie for tomorrow.  I must say whoever it is that is putting those kit club products together is a rock star!!!  Oh wait, its me!!  It is really fun sharing with local peeps and people from afar.  It is cool that eP provides space for those who are local and mails it to others, no matter where they are.  May's kit is pretty cool.  Here is a peek at the overall kit.


This is a layout I created for the club and am using it as my blog post for today.  





Head on over to the blog for more details about this KOTM and how you can sign up.
