Cupcakes and a Girliy Girl Accordion

I got the new CTMH stamp set Cup Cake Sprinkles recently. And I LOVE it! I saw it in the spring catalog and new I had to have it. I have so many wonderful ideas for this little set. Especially some really fun cards. The possibilities are definitely endless for this set. Here is a set of eight 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 cards I made. I used the More To Adore Papers with Bubblegum and Chocolate inks. 
This is my 6x6 Memory Showcase album. I used Daydream Bulk Paper and Honey & Hollyhock Cardstock.  The stamp set is Girly Girl. I know it is plain, but I was afraid to go overboard with embellishments and no pictures.

Looking for a good deal?

How about a steal? Over the last few months I have become addicted with a web store. BabySteals is a great way to get baby and maternity items for a fraction of the price. Each day they offer one item, it goes up and is sold until it is sold out or for 24 hours only. In the recent weeks I have gotten two of my favorite baby things in the world. I got some really cute baby legs for Peyton. They were a three pack and I paid just over what I pay for ONE pair. Then there is my Sprout Shell Oh how I LOVE my Sprout Shell. This is the coolest thing and a must have for anyone with a small baby. Baby steals has turned me on to items I never knew existed and some are now my favorite things in the world. I had never seen a sprout shell until it was up as a steal. Now it is one of my most coveted baby items. I have told countless friends about baby steals. But I am turning to you guys as well. I know many of you are mom's grandma's Aunts, etc. We all know someone who could take advantage of these great savings. Or you could , yourself. So check it out. You never know what you may get to steal today ;)

Pay it forward!

Here is how it works-the 1st 5 people to leave a comment on this post will receive at some point during this year a handmade gift from me. If you don't live by me give me some way to contact you so I can send it. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment here write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going( or cut and one will judge you, cause that is what I did). Then come back and let me know you are going to play, and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift. Remember only the 1st 5 will qualify. Good Luck!!!

Cupcake Pops

I follow Pioneer Woman's Blog. She has all sorts of yummy recipes, great gardening tips, great photography tips, and more. I absolutely love reading her blog. A while back she mentioned Bakerella in a post. Then last month Bakerella and Pioneer woman got together and had a weekend of lessons. One being Bakerella's cupcake pops. I of course had to look up Bakerella's other creations. All I can say is OMG this woman has an awesome talent. She makes cake pops of every shape and color. I used one of her tutorials to make cupcake pops this weekend. They came out great. We took them to a birthday party yesterday and they were a hit. Everyone loved them. So I had to share a picture of my yummy cake pops with all of you. I made mine with a white cake mix that I doctored up a bit. Instead of using the water it called for I used maraschino cherry juice. The cake turned out so good! They are now what my daughter is asking to have for her birthday... in Dec. lol Anyway I recommend both of these blogs to everyone. I definitely think everyone should try the cake pops. They were so fun to make and just so stinking cute when finished. I think I have a new addiction!

BTW, if anyone has seen the new CTMH stamps Cupcake Sprinkles... I think these would look cute with something made from that set ;)
