I think my grand-nephew is going to make his appearance today, woohoo. His Mom is in labor, albeit slow, but I think he is coming today. We had a Mickey Mouse themed shower for hera couple of weeks ago and here are a few pictures. I made cake pops and used mini oreos for the ears before I dipped them in the chocolate. I also used qbee's template for baby carriages filled with Hershey Kisses - so stinkin cute! (I will add the link as soon as I get home), I also wrapped water bottles with a cute saying and my niece made sugar dipped Marshmallow treats. This party came together so well that we are working on a new project that you will hear more about shortly. Hopefully I will be sharing some baby pictures on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!
My co-worker Charlie is a cool dude who loves Tootsie Pops and I wanted to do something nice for him. Charlie has a very giving spirit and an easy going personality. He has has a rough time of it since 2006 when his son, Pat, who was in his early twenties at the time, was paralyzed while playing college Hockey and is now a quadriplegic. Charlie and his wife try to make Pat's life as normal as possible and his son plays wheelchair Rugby, attends sporting events, attends college, etc with Charlies help of course. No matter how many appointments, or late nights Charlie has he never complains, he is just thankful to still have his son because it could have been worse. So for a sweet treat I made this Tootsie Pop bouquet for his birthday. I saw it done for other ages and thought it was too cute and yes there are 60 Pops on there, I counted them myself, lol!

I was looking through my pile of layouts and realized that very few feature my husband and after twelve years together, that aint right! So for this first sketch I decided to do one about him and his fabulous bread pudding. Since he and the girls do not eat bread ends (I don't know how that came about), he saves them for a month or two in the freezer and then makes a nice batch of bread pudding. He also makes it for our block party, Thanksgiving, the New Year and on demand for his many fans. One of the things that impress me the most is that he makes it without a recipe or a measuring cup and each batch is better than the last. I personally like the crispier edges and because I know how to do a dessert right I add carmel sauce to mine, lol. For this layout I used almost the last of my Maple Grove papers from a Scrap-room kit in my stash. I hope to finish the papers off on a couple cards, 1 down and many more to go.
