Playing Catch Up

Boy, time sure flies. I can't believe it's been so long since my last post. I had some problems with my computer and camera but it seems both are cooperating today and are on the road to being fixed. I thought I would play catch up and show you the rest of the projects that the boys and I came up with for Teacher Appreciation Week. My oldest son really wanted to bake cookies, so we came up with these cute take out boxes filled with different colored sugar cookies. The tags were fun to make and I added some stickles in the center of each of the flowers to add a little extra something.

For this project: Stamps by A Muse; Paper, ink and fibers by Stampin' Up!; marvy punch, stickles and jumbo brads.


Friday brought a party for our teachers. I made two different batches of cupcakes. The top picture is regular cupcakes sprinkled with mini chocolate chips for the kids. The bottom picture are gluten free cupcakes. One of our teacher is allergic to gluten and hadn't had a cupcake in over three years. She was so excited to see these. A couple of the kids wanted to try them and told me they were really good "brownies". I found a great recipe here. I didn't have time to make whipped cream for the tops so I sprinkled them with powdered sugar instead. (You will want to check your powdered sugar though as some companies have started mixing their sugar with wheat instead of cornstarch. Crazy, I know)
Well, I wish you all a great start to a new week. Keep checking back because I have a bunch of new cards to show you.

Until tomorrow,
