let her eat cupcake

Remember how I said that I was working on a project...here it is!! I hope it was worth the anticipation. I had taken these pics of Sarah a couple weeks ago and when I was browsing through my pictures last night and saw these I knew what I would do for Leah's challenge- make a cupcake-shaped page!! I hope it does look like a cupcake, lol.

It took a while to sketch out the shape I wanted since I am far from being an artist, but I kinda like it and this was the most fun page I've done for a while.


Papers are from the March AC Bailey kit from LAST year- yeah, I liked it so much I bought two of the kits! They're Sassafras Lass (top) and Making Memories (brown dot).

I got real creative and did the pleated part at the bottom and sanded the edges to make it look like a paper cupcake cup. Did it work? I think so, and Glossy Accents worked perfectly for gluing that part onto my background paper. I used some foam adhesive to make the top part stand out as well, did some doodling and added some glitter glue as well and lots of American Crafts Thickers and some Sassafras flowers.


And there you have it...a cupcake-shaped scrapbook page. I hope it earns me some more extra points this week because I'd surely love to win a spot on the Nook design team!! (hint, hint)

p.s. We did go for a walk outside, too, so I met that "get movin'" goal for today as well!!

5/14/09 Just as a side note today, this layout is in the Top 10 over at 2 Peas in a Bucket!!! That is so very exciting for me!!!!

That is a FAB page. Love it! And the cupcake looks delicious too. Hope you get the extra points. And...hooray for 'movin' today. When I've been out of it for a long time, and then get back into it, I must admit, that a little part of me thinks I deserve a medal, or at least a cheer or something, lol. Good for you!
