Cakes for charity........

Well, I for one am not ashamed to admit I am NO cake decorator! Place cake, icing, and fondant in front of me and the result will be a big ole' mess, I gaurantee! Change the materials however, to boxes, paint, glue, and flowers and then I can make something pretty and funky-cool!

What am I talking about exactly? Well, a coworker asked me to join in a cake decorating contest with benefits going to Relay For Life. All I had to do was make a cake from boxes and craft supplies. I was flattered someone liked my work and thought I would be a good fit for this task, and also excited about helping others in need. So, my mind was made up right away and I knew I HAD to do this!

I began with paper mache boxes, and painted them up. I painted a cake board with hot pink and when dry I masked on it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens and Graphite Glimmer Mist.(In the photos the mist looks a bit purple, but in reality it matches the cake brilliantly!) I glued the boxes together with Fabri-Tac, from Beacon Adhesives. It is the BEST glue for a quick, permanent grab! Then, I "had me some fun" with decorating!

I must say, I love how this turned out! I can only hope this will bring some money in the cake raffle/auction!

A new baby in the house!!

We have a new baby! No, I haven't been keeping a secret for nine months, LOL! He is a tiny grey kitten we've named Lester. We got him from our neighbors, and he is a sweetie. As I type this, he is sitting on my foot, chewing on my shoelaces. I forgot kitties were so silly! Check out our new boy:

Now I have to learn how to scrap pet pages, that is something new to me!
