We interupt this challenge...

to pause for Summer Break.

I didn't intend to take time off this summer...but I'm finding myself pulled in other directions. Directions I want to be pulled so it is all good (hello: nothing says summer quite like a good book, a cold glass of lemonade, sitting in a comfy chair and watching the clouds pass by).

I hope to return to my crafty ways in early August.
But until then...see what's happening over on the Family Blog.

Got Cake?

We do!

Finished Course 1 a few weeks ago and this was my final cake - Loved making Wilton Roses once I figured out how to hold the tip.


Now we're on to Course 3, I'll take course 2 next.

This class introduced me to fondant - not so sure I like working with it but mine turned out awesome. The teacher was shocked at how well I did.

So without further ado I present my present

And this is why my scrapbooking and card making has been on a decline.

Anyone want to place an order?

Cleaning up

Wk 16:  Finally blogger didn't try to tilt it on its side.  (Original sketch came fromPage Maps, Jan 09)

SS Sketch Challenge:  Wk17 (this was a BH sketch, pg.  182)
  While it isn't one of my recent favorites, I am pleased with how I was able to highlight several different events in one sketch and I am glad I took the time to add the journaling.  The best part is that it is D.O.N.E. and I can move on to something else.  

Off I go...taking off my crafting hat and putting on the administrative assistant hat...the pile of stuff that needs to be filed and sorted is HUGE and before I can pay bills I need to get a handle on the chaos.
