Girly Cupcake Stands

Well... Here is the other SUPER C-U-T-E!!! Cupcake stand.
My daughter has decided that it belongs to her and my neighbor just about flipped when she saw and wants me to make her 24 stands for her granddaughters birthday party.
So for her party, I will have her name, age and a message printed on the top circle of the stand, so her guests can take it as a party favor.

Here is another look at the stand with a paper cupcake I have in my work room.
FYI... All my kits for the Mistletoe Magic Event, will come with the instructions on how to duplicate my projects for your own personal use.

Mistletoe Layouts

Hi Everyone!
Just like an Elf, I have been working on the Christmas layouts for this months workshop.  We will be assembling these Mistletoe Layouts using CTMH Mistletoe Level 2 paper packet and matching embellishments.
I hope you like them!!!
The ornaments on these 12 x 12 layouts are embossed with gold embossing powder.
These layouts have faux stitching!!!  I simply hand drew stitching on the cardstock with the matching Cocoa colored marker from CTMH.

 These two 12 x 12 layouts are my favorite! The Christmas tree was dry embossed with the Big Kick and the ornaments were embossed with gold embossing powder and individually hand cut by ME!!!  
YEP!!! You heard correctly, I hand stamped, embossed and cut each ornament and stars for everyone!
Over 200 pieces!!!!!  I love my customers!!!!

My Little Ones in Halloween Costumes

O.K.!!!! How C.U.T.E is this little Mario? My son Hunter looked so cute, people stopped their tracks to comment on how much he looked like the Mario from the games. Of course he loved all the attention and acted sillier!
Nathan, was a character from Avatar, but he did not like the feeling of the mask and he couldn't see very well out of the holes for the eyes, so we opted for a semi blue face. Here he is with a friend of ours Perla, at her haunted house.
Victoria had a hard time with her vampire teeth, but she insisted that they completed the outfit. So in all her pictures, she looks like she has a big gum ball in her mouth...

Another Halloween came and gone... Now let's get ready for the Holidays!!!!!
