Here's just a quick post on a quick LO I put together for the scrapbooks I'm putting together for Scott's parents. This was Zachary, a stray that we took in but unfortunately after 4 mos we realized it was never going to work out with my other cat, Tyler, so we had to find him (Zach) a new home. We found the best home for him with 2 other cats and dog and the ALL get along, so Zach is very happy in his new (not so new anymore) home and Tyler is happy with him gone! ;p

40th Birthday Cake

Well, I made one for my nephew, Chase, who turn one at the beginning of the month so I decided to go much further in age and made a birthday cake keepsake book for Scott for his 40th birthday.

I used the same rub-ons that I used on Chase's cake, I really like the style of these from Scenic Route:

I went to CVS and used their Kodak Kiosk to make 2x3 pictures so I could fit more in the book:

I love these wood flourishes from Kaiser, they fit so perfectly on this layer of the cake:

Cake Mix:
-CS: Bazzill Basics “Mud Pie” and Craft and Craftin Glitter Paper “Coffee”
-PPs: K&Company Tim Coffey “Fall Script” and “Fall Gold Leaf Scroll”,

Father Daughter Ball 2007

Every year at Alyssa's elementary school they would have a Father Daughter Ball and this one is from 2007 which was the 2nd to the last one. Unfortunately Scott forgot his camera to the last one. :(

Here's two LOs I did at 4:00AM on Thursday because I couldn't sleep...yes I was cutting those intricate flowers at 4 in the morning!

Hope you like...

Those flowers that are partially framing the picture is what I cut out of a beautiful SEI paper that is from the same collection of the two papers I used for these LOs:

Someone decided to take a bite out of her cupcake right before getting her picture taken...I thought it was too funny leave out of the LO:

Isn't she like a princess:

I cut the wings on the butterflies to tuck the picture under:

Somebody turned ONE!

My very adorable nephew, Chase, turned 1 this past Monday. I can't believe it's been a year already!

Last year I took a fun class at my LSS where we made a birthday cake keepsake book so I can't take credit for the idea of this book but the cake decorating part is me (although we used some of the same rub-ons but I placed them in different spots), so some scraplifting.

Anyway here it is, just needs completing once his parents pick out their favorite pics from the b-day party and I can put them in book.

This is two stamps I combined together. I masked the sentiment on the Fluffles baking stamp and replaced it with the other sentiment from another Stampendous stamp (thought it was perfect for this project):
