Yay... finally!!

Yay, I can finally start updating my poor neglected blog. I managed to tie my DH down long enough to get my things off my old dead laptop and onto my new one!! Can't rush these big jobs.

Anyway, as promised in my previous blog I have something special to show you all. This is a "baby cake" I made for a friend's baby who was born at the beginning of June (a big welcome to the beautiful Isabella).
Here is the finished off cake, all tied up with ribbon. I filled each individual box with baby items such as bibs, singlets, cotton buds, cotton balls and all things baby.

This is a close up of each individual piece which I stamped the cute baby from "All in the Family". I also made scalloped flowers from the scallop circle punch.

Now for a top view of the cake with all 11 pieces in place. I was very happy with my first ever cake and it definitely had the WOW factor. My friend absolutely loved it so much she ordered one for her partner's daughter who had her baby just last weekend (yes, another girl so another pink one!!).

Here is a close up view of the scalloped flowers. I ended up putting brads in the middle to give it that nice finished off look.

Thanks for being patient and I hope it was worth the wait!!!

My Apologies

Hi to everyone out there who checks into my blog.

My apologies for neglecting my poor blog and I have so much to show and tell but alas I am still waiting to get the pics off the camera (which has been sent away!!) and onto my new laptop. My DH gave me his old laptop to use and am still waiting to get the bits off my dead laptop. Oh well can't rush these things.

I have been working on quite a bit lately and haven't been able to photograph any of them. I have been making paper "cakes" for babies and even some bags and things for my lovely neighbour's business.

Keep checking in and hopefully will have something to show you in the following weeks. Until then I will keep creating!!
