How do you win? Well, everyone has worked so hard on their projects for today, please leave a comment, a little love over at their blogs. If you're not a follower, please follow me! Why? Because I love to craft, and I used to share my creations with my Mom, who was always my biggest fan, but since her passing in 1995, I miss her and her comments. So when you leave me a comment, at least I know I haven't crafted in vain... Perhaps I'll have something that will inspire you to try! I use Random.Org to pick a winner on Monday morning! That should give everyone a chance to hop through the blogs and leave their comments.
Other blogs along the way may have some blog candy offering as well.
The complete line-up will be following my project, so check it out and at least with these cupcakes, you won't be gaining any weight.....
I chose a chipboard purse/book that I purchased over at http://honeybearzdesigns2011.blogspot.com/2012/08/good-morning-and-welcome-to-our-august.html
I saw this on her blog, and she opened a store and I just had to purchase it! I knew I wanted to use it for my project for today. Let me post a photo of it.
I used a pack of CTMH pink patterned paper. It's from years ago... (I'm a hoarder) but thought it'd be perfect for this. I used Washi tape (2) along the bottom of the front.
Now I haven't completely embellished the front or the inside tags. Why? Well, I thought I was going to do one thing, but while I was working on it... discovered we're going to have a new granddaughter this November. We just had a new grandson, so with the first granddaughter and grandson, now we'll have 4! (I don't count the other child's dogs, but she insists they're my granddogs..) anyway, so I thought maybe I'd do this a different way.. Now I'm just undecided.... may just go with the oldest one from birth to 11, and as she's turning 12 in February, could do this for her birthday. Yes, that might be doable.. now to February to decide and finish it... LOL Who else has projects that aren't done, maybe never will be done.. I know I'm not the only one!
Here's the inside of the book so far.
I love how there are the inside covers, and with 6 tags, inside and out, that's 24 places to stash photos, quotes, or other embellishments. I have a plastic tray that I"m putting all my pink things in, or things I might want to use on this in so they are all together. That's another problem I have, where did I put that??? These trays from the dollar stores are great to group together upcoming projects and all in one place when I'm ready to work.
Perhaps just too much to choose from....
Now for my recipe- I was scoping out the web.. and found a recipe called Crunch-A-Bunch Cupcakes. It's from the Kellogg's people. Who doesn't love Rice Krispies? They took the rice krispy recipe and had the kids make them into a ball (like popcorn balls) and put in a cupcake liner. That gives the kids a top to ice and decorate, just like cupcakes. How easy is that? You know they're gonna love buttering their hands, and making that into a ball and then decorating that! It'll be a great way to keep them busy during the upcoming holiday season and they could help make a treat for everyone!
Don't they look luscious? When we make rice krispy treats, we just cut the pan into however many are here at that time.. One big treat and we're all happy! LOL For the recipe or more ideas, check out the link below.
