wednesday . . .


Happy St.Patrick's Day from me & my little leprechaun . . .

This pic is actually from yesterday after Ryan came home from preschool - they made these cute hats & shamrocks :)

Today's weather was an absolute gift - just gorgeous & sunny - temps in the 60s :) We spent most of the afternoon outside enjoying it . . .

Once tuckered out, Ryan & I came inside & decided to do some baking - we moved on to the next holiday a little early & made some Easter cupcakes - Ryan loved decorating these . . .

While working on these cupcakes, I little light bulb went off & I got an idea . . . what about some decorative cupcake holders . . . I found the adorable Egg Drop Soup line by Jillibean Soup in my stash and got creating . . .

LOVE these new cardstock stickers they came out with - the perfect "fix" for my current layering obsession . . .

Oh and the grass around the bottom of the cupcakes . . . stamped with this cute set by Jillibean Soup . . .

I also want to give myself some props in regards to my new cupcake decorating skills - I had bought some of those decorating tips a while ago but never played around with them. I was always a bit intimidated but they were super easy to use.

Have a fab Wednesday . . .
I'll be back Friday to share some more Imaginisce projects using the FABULOUS Live Loud line!!!
