Cupcakes and things...

Who doesn't like cupcakes? Em has a passion-obsession for everything cupcake. Especially the real thing, so I made these chipboard cupcakes in the February Scrapmuse kit into magnets for her to display her artwork on the refrigerator.

I did this layout with a picture of the girls trying on flower girl dresses at David's Bridal. Em loved hanging with the big girls!! Don't they all look so cute?

I played with the Pencil Lines sketch this week. I have always loved this picture of Emma - she is about 17 months old here.

And another mixed media journal - this one is on watercolor paper - I was playing with some painting techniques and a finish I saw in my Golden book - faux bee's wax. It doesn't really show here but looks good in real life.

Somerset contacted me this week and want to publish my mixed media series - Childhood Memories with a technique article in the next Sew Somerset!!! To say I am thrilled would be putting it mildly!! Hope you are all have a great week! See you soon! :)
Edited to add: OK, Call me crazy but those layouts have been really bugging me - everytime I looked at them I felt something was missing. Does anyone else do this? lol So here they are re-worked a bit and I decided to leave the old ones up to look at the difference.

Call me obsessive, but I feel much better now! ;)
