For the Love of Cupcakes

If you have followed my blog for anytime, you will have seen that I love to bake, maybe even more than scrapbooking. It is just another creative outlet for me. While I like to try my hand at all kinds of sweets, cupcakes have become my signature dessert within my family. I try all kinds of flavors to please each family members taste. My homemade carrot cake with cream cheese and marscapone frosting is a favorite of my Dad's. My sister loves turtle cupcake which is a version of her favorite candy. And these below, vanilla bean cupcakes with vanilla bean marshmallow frosting is a favorite of small children, which is why I made these for the kiddos at the daycare where my daughter worked.

So to tie my two loves together, I decided to create a page documenting my desire for the sweet treat. I used a Pink Paislee paper for the background and since it was already pre-printed, I just went with that design adding just a few touches to complete my page. I sewed additional doilies at the top corner to match the ones in the bottom. I stamped a few embellishments, cut them out, and adhered them with pop-dots for added dimension. The title is some old Making Memory puffy letter stickers and the new Doodlebug letters from Two Peas. They are so stinkin' adorable that I picked them up in every color. I finished off with a few drops of mist and called it a day.


Thanks for visiting!
