Royal Kat Tuuesday Blog Hop: Inspiration

CUPCAKES!!! Indulge in a little guilty pleasure with us this week.

This week's challenge will be to go online (or your local bakery for the real thing) and find an inspiring cupcake picture. Then create a card or layout or project or whatever using that picture as your inspiration.

Here's a yummy example:

And here's the official blog hop list in case you get lost along the way:

If there's anything I like to indulge in as giving in to my sweet tooth, it's using doilies in my layout. So I definitely knew I wanted a big one as a background.

Then I realized upon looking at last year's Christmas memorabilia, that the cards, gift tags and little drawings of my son are as much a part of the memories as the photos.

So I came up with a way of putting all these precious mementoes in a layout.

The challenge was how to create the pocket for all the stuff I was putting on there. In my ever clumsy way, I always manage to create pockets that are too small for the memorabilia I want to put in my layouts.

I finally stumbled on a solution by using a humble office envelope:

Slap some pretty patterned paper in front and voila, a beautiful pocket:

I used the lovely Peppermint Girl Stamp and Warm Fuzzies Stamp Set.
