Taylor's cupcake challenge

Thank goodness for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. After playing around in my stamp room yesterday for about an hour or so, I still had nothing to show for my efforts. What's a girl to do? Draw inspiration from other stampers.

Since yesterday was Friday, I decided I would start with Taylor's challenge. She always has the greatest layouts and the whole cupcake thing is just too fun. You just can't go wrong with cupcakes.

The sentiment was made using my computer and Print Shop and my quirky sense of humor. I just couldn't help myself.

Stamps: Cupcake (Inkadinkado) Papers: Soft Sky, Yo yo yellow, Lime textured, DP (Lollia). Inks: Black Stazon. Accessories: Buttons, Computer, Marker, stickles.

I kept this pretty simple cause I'm just not ready for complicated yet. The cupcake was paper pieced using DP and yo yo yellow paper and then topped off with stickles for a little bling.

The doodle border was hand drawn.

That's all I have for now! My nephews came to stay with my dad while we were in Washington and they are still here and it's a little loud and crowded at the moment. I now know why God only gave me one son. He wanted me to be somewhat sane. You get three boys together and it's just loud and raucous. All well, such is life!

Thank you to all my dear friends for there encouraging words and prayers while I was away! You know who you are and you are the best!

As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great day! TTFN

Hi Becky! Thanks for the comment!Glad you are home! Sounds like you've had a rough week. I'm glad your MIL is doing better. Hopefully you and your family can get some rest now. Baby Alex and I are doing ok-he finally came to meet us last Wednesday! I posted most of the details on my blog. I had to have an emergency c-section and Alex is in the NICU still, but I don't think he'll be in there too long. Hopefully long enough for me to recuperate a little so I can take care of 2 crazy boys!!
