Have Your Cake and ... Well, Ya Know

A VERY quick post for you as I am writing this with
not much time to spare!
I thought I would end up with more time in the evening,
but Paul and I took our two oldest grandsons to their
school's Culture Fair tonight and we ended up spending
lots of extra time together after the festivities ended.

It's time for another challenge from

These colors remind me of
summertime . . . 
picnics . . . 
county fairs . . .

Baby Blue . . . Denim . . . Cherry

These fun stamps are from this week's sponsor Mr. Cricut Crazy
called 'Birthday, Birthday'
A yummy, giant cupcake paper-pieced using paper from
GCD Studios called 'Planes & Trains'.
I twisted baker's twine in matching colors to the challenge,
Maraschino, Denim & Shore,
all from The Twinery,
to create the topper of the cupcake wrapper.
How about that cherry on the top !!!

Make sure you check out all the fabulous work our designers
created using stamps from this week's sponsor...

I'll see you in The Play Date Cafe!

Stamps: Birthday, Birthday by Mr. Cricut Crazy
Embellishments: baker's twine in Marschino, Denim & Shore
giant pearl from Bo-Bunny
Tools:  Swiss Dot EF by Cuttlebug, Big Shot
