Easter cupcakes

In preparation for Easter dinner my daughter  wanted to make cupcakes for dessert for everyone. My good friend shared her famous buttercream icing that my daughter loves and she did it all! Made the cupcakes, made the icing and frosted the cupcakes. They were a huge hit!

They turned out so adorable!

Happy Easter!!

Easter chocolate

We hosted Easter dinner this weekend. In preparation for this my daughter made these yummy chocolates for everyone to enjoy!


They were yummy!!

Amber week 6

I was able to complete the weekly challenge over at Scrapbook Steals.

Given that it was Easter this weekend I figured that an Easter layout would be fitting. I used the Imaginisce Hippity Hop Collection.

Happy Easter!

Sassy Cheryl challenge

This weeks challenge over at Sassy Cheryl is favourite colour combo. That was easy for me!! Blue and purple. I think that is the colour I use on all my cards! I love the way they look together!

I love this layout if I do say so myself!! I loved how bright and colourful these pictures turned out. I also loved the look of concentration as the clown face develops. Priceless!!


FTH sketch - No. 10

I was made aware of a new site for digital images that I love!! From the Heart is the site and they have challenges! I love a challenge. They have a new sketch challenge every week! That is right up my alley! I used their monthly image as part of this challenge so I was able to kill two birds with one stone!!
Here is the sketch

This is my card:

Simple Stories - Vintage Bliss layout

I love the Simple Stories collection so as soon a Vintage Bliss came out I had to get my hands on it. I used this collection to complete the layout for the weekly challenge over at ScrapMuch?

I even did a little sewing on this page!

Aeroplane Bag pattern test

I was lucky enough to be able to test another pattern for Sara at Sew Sweetness. This bag comes in two different sizes. I made the long version but love this bag so much I will definitely make the regular version.

I used Sandi Henderson fabric for this bag. I would say this pattern is for intermediate sewers.

It is very roomy and I had a chance to use this bag on the weekend when we went away. I love it and know that I will get lots of use out of it!

I was able to finish the layout for this weeks challenge over at ScrapMuch?

I used a really old kit that I had in my stash! It is so satisfying to be able to use it up after having kept it around for soooo long!!!


Mid week Mojo #4

I loved the sketch for this weeks challenge over at Scrapbook Steals!

I used the My Mind's Eye On the Sunny Side collection.


Look, I even sewed in two spots!!


I can't wait for the summer to arrive!!

Sassy Cheryl's weekly challenge

This week the challenge over at Sassy Cheryl is to use White, Green and Orange. Because my photo's are not the greatest my green looks more like blue!!

With Easter only a few weeks away I went with the Easter theme! I know someone who loves Easter so may actually put this card in the mail!

Petrillo Bag pattern test

I was fortunate enough to be selected to test the pattern for the Petrillo Bag for Sara over at Sew Sweetness.

I am in love with it!! It will be my new spring bag. So roomy with a perfect padded pocket for my Kobo!
I would say that this pattern is for intermediate sewers.
I used Floral Garden Sea from the Soliel collection as my fabric.
The top flap is pleated.
There are two pockets inside. One with a flap and one with a zipper.
