TECC41: Singing & Real Cuppies!


T.G.I.C.F.!!  Thank God it's Cupcake Friday!  Here is my singing cuppie from Home Sweet Home
by Taylored Expressions - I love this little guy in his sparkly red scarf (fire engine red glitter, also in the key ingredients package).  The colors in the dp match real nicely with Riding Hood Red & Kiwi Kiss (which is what I colored his ear muffs with). 

Here is Taylor's sketch so you can play along to be eligible to win cupcake sampler honors and be featured on Taylor's blog next Friday using the next Cupcake Friday sketch. You're not required to use cupcakes on your card, but if you got 'em why not use 'em??  Feel free to create something other than a card if you'd like but please try to keep to the sketch as much as possible.  If you're uploading to Splitcoast, use keyword TECC41.  Leave a comment on Taylor's post with a link to your creation so she can check it out!  Be sure to upload by Monday, November 10th at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the cupcake sampler honors.  Lastly, be sure to have fun!!

The Featured Cupcake Sampler this week is my friend Dawn Easton - Treasured Oiler Designz she is just a sweetie & has a clean, fresh style that I love!

Speaking of sweet cupcakes, I must leave you with a few pics from my trip to CA to visit my niece & nephew for Halloween!

I was so excited that Gabby wanted to be a kitty this year since I have several stamps I can use to scrapbook her pics - and when I decided to dress up too, I thought I would be the Big Cat & she would be the little kitty - perfect!!  Joseph was a Hershey's Kiss - and that red stuff on his cheek is his first lipstick kiss from his mommy!!

Look how precious he is; looking at his big sister who he adores!!  Ever wonder what Gabby's mommy & daddy look like?  I'm not sure I ever posted!  So here they all are - btw, my sister doesn't normally wear bright red lipstick, it was for the pics!!  We had so much fun trick-or-treating - I hadn't done it in about 14 years!!  Such great memories

I just realized I don't have that great of pics of us making cupcakes, my sister was off with the baby so it was me & Gabby for a long while making them.  I did get some great video though. Earlier that day we decorated Trick or Sweet  cupcake toppers, she even helped place the toothpicks on them.  Her mommy kept telling her I was coming for Halloween & we were going to make cupcakes (it was her first time and since she loves helping & cooking it was right up her alley!)  A few weeks ago they went shopping at her favorite store (Target) and she picked out all the cupcake sprinkles (in the plastic tubs) my sister said she kept saying, "I need that and that and that" as she kept throwing items in the cart!!  She also kept telling everyone, "Auntie Donna is coming for Halloween - we're going to make cupcakes, trick or treat, that's what you say to get candy' - it was her mantra!  She is just so sweet, smart & loveable and I miss her so much already!!
