Hello again! My school year is almost over and normally I would be counting the seconds until summer vacation officially begins. This year will be a little different since DD1 is graduating. Not only am I neck deep in party planning and getting photos ready for the big day, but I'm also trying to finally move into my crafting room. DH was able to put the new hardwood in this week and now I'm scrambling around trying to unpack boxes, move furniture, and put things in some sort of order. The only upside of this is it keeps me from focusing on the fact that my first born is approaching a major milestone and won't be around nearly as much as she is now... I recently finished her softball photo board and could not believe how hard it was to look at those first years of softball pictures!
I have also been busy making invitations and thank you cards for her party. Since we needed quite a few of these, I kept the design super simple and easy to assembly line.
When we had senior night for softball, we made cupcakes and arranged them in the shape of a softball. Since we wanted the girls to each have their name on a 'softball', I came up with a banner for each girl. Using die cuts made this super easy to put together. I glued the banners to a cake pop stick and they looked pretty cute flying over the cupcakey goodness.
I'm sorry to say that my pictures of the girls with their cakes didn't turn out too well. It was a hot muggy day and by the time the game was over and the girls could pose with their cakes, the icing was a bit melty... They tasted wonderful though!
I am hoping that within the next month or so, things will be settled and I'll be able to actually create again. Assembly line crafts are great in a pinch, but I am really in need of some serious creative therapy! Wish me luck!
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you'll come back soon!
