A long 2 weeks!

Sorry I haven't updated in a while. Someone actually unsubscribed because I haven't been updating often enough!! My cousin got very ill and was on life support for 2 weeks and they decided to take her off last week and she passed away. I had been going back and forth to the hospital to give support to family. We went out of town this past weekend to Arkansas to visit my husband's brother and his wife and see their oldest son get baptized. It was nice to be able to go visit, but it was a really fast trip!

I realize this is a paper crafting blog, but I just have to show you something else!

My husband's Aunt called me last week and asked me if I would be willing to make a baby shower cake for someone that she works with. I was a little nervous about it because this was going to be a paid job!! Here is the cake I made for her. I think it turned out really cute! She wanted the pink to be just about white. I used white icing for the main cake so it would help the pink stand out a little bit. I wish I had done a basket weave on the sides, but I didn't think of it until just about time to deliver it, so it had plain sides! I made the roses from fondant that I tinted pale pink and the shimmer is from using pearl luster! ( I hope you can see it) I LOVE that stuff!! It makes them sparkle and looks so pretty!!!

I will try to get back to stamping and posting more frequently now that life is settling back down! Thanks for sticking with me!
