Glass Photo Coasters

            My grandmother has the most beautiful flowers and I am forever taking pictures of them. I have accumulated quite a stack of photos and had no idea what I was going to do with them all. Until, she purchased her new living room set and I saw the old worn out coasters on her pretty new tables. I purchased 4 coasters from my local scrapbook store that were ready to add photos to. They had a black border painted on them that I didn't want so I lightly sanded them until it was gone. I stamped them with black Staz On ink and then used a gold paint dauber to do the background. They turned out so pretty I want to make some for myself and she loved them.

Diaper Cake

I have wanted to make a diaper cake ever since I first saw one and finally my good friend gave me a reason to. We had to put together a last minute baby shower for her sister with a monkey theme. I used the Create a Critter cartridge (one of my favs) a cut the monkeys, palm tree and vines. I used Don Juan for the name and embossed the letters with the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder then sprayed them with Perfect Pearls mist to give them a little pop. I found the cute fabric at Joann's, as well as the ribbon and tulle. I was pretty happy with it and she loved it. Can't wait to do another one!
