Have your cake and (don't) eat it too!!!!

Q. What does every new parent need??


But giving someone a package of diapers is not much fun! SOOOO when Jessica Young (friend from our ward) had her little baby boy Easton I decided to try making a diaper cake! I had never done it before and had so much fun making it! I used 107 diapers (I later found 5 more rolled up under the couch!) and some cute blue and brown paper. I now am just waiting for another baby shower so I can do it again!!

B-day/challange card!

This card is for a challenge that my friends Amy and Debbie are doing. The challenge is to make a card using scraps. The top of the cupcake is from a scallop punch I never used. I folded it in half and used demension dots to give it a 3D effect! I also dry embossed the little dots on the pink. It did not look as good as I hoped so I tried to versamark it so I could see the dots better. the bottom of the cupcake is a little scrap that I crimped. Then for the bottom of the card I just punched out a bunch of small circles of the same pink, sanded them a little and glued them on! It's simple but it was fun and I did not have to cut up a new sheet of paper to make it!
P.S. the card is also for a friend of chelseas!

24 hour thank yous!!

This was my phone call on Wednesday evening.

Lani: Hello?
Chelsea: Uh, I need a thank you card.
Lani: Ok.
Chelsea: Uh, actually I need 9 thank you cards!
Lani: Uh, ok.
Chelsea: And (pause) I need them tomorrow!

jk I am sure there was more to the conversation but I seem to only remember this part!!

Well they turned out pretty simple because I sent too much time reading Midnight Sun (264 pages of Edward!!!!) when I should have been finishing the cards!!
