Baking, Quilting, Scrapbooking and a Movie August 9, 2009

This weekend has been filled with some of my favorite things!

I went to a baby shower on Saturday. So Friday night, I made frosting and chocolate chip cupcakes.



Saturday morning I frosted them…



The card I made…


Saturday evening I went to the local scrapbooking store and scrapbooked with a friend. I updated a simple album I keep of the cakes I decorate and then I made a few cards.


I got this idea from a blog, but I can't remember whose!

I found the elephant at a scrapbook store, I didn't make it.

Same as the elephant, I didn't make the lion.

If I make cards ahead of time, to have ready for an event, I don’t usually put a sentiment on the front until I know the final purpose.

Lately, I have had creative block to scrapbooking other photos besides my cake creations. I think I need to get all my photos a little more organized, and that might help. That will be another project for another weekend.

Yesterday and today I have also been quilting. I have been working on the quilt I started the other day. New pictures to come soon.

I almost forgot… My husband took me to see the new movie, Julie & Julia. It was fabulous! I laughed a lot. I am sad I hadn’t read the book before hand, but I do plan to still read it. It was very inspiring… but no, I will not be cooking through the cookbook in the next year. I might however, try some new recipes. Harder recipes!

    Hey you… WOW. the Cupcakes look AMAZING. I’m hungry now and it’s not even 9am (I’m on a boring conference call at present). Also, congrats on the award winning pie. You’re such a “crafty” star!

    P.S. – those cupcakes look wonderful.
