Life's a Beach

Isn't she the cutest! I just love my Cheeky Beach from The Greeting Farm. I had tons of fun coloring her. This card is being sent to a friend of mine. The inside greeting says, "...especially when you're SICK!" LOL. My version of a "get well" card. I added some glitter to her shoes, swim suit and the flower in her hair.
The "Life's a BEACH" sentiment was stamped with individual alpha letters that I had purchased at Michael's in their dollar bins a while back.

Here are the Copic Marker colors that I used.

Owl Cake Pops

This is my first attempt at making these owl cake pops. I was inspired by Bakerella. She has the cutest ideas and the best tutorials. I am no baker but these turned out pretty cute =) They were yummy too, especially for those with a sweet tooth. The inside is composed of strawberry cake mix and cream cheese frosting. The outside of the owl is coated with white chocolate. I did not make the flowers, the eyes or the feet. They were premade embellishments and sprinkles that can be bought at your local baking supply store.
I made these cute critters for a scrapbook crop at my LSS (Scrapbook Land). The girls enjoyed it, some even ate 4 LOL. You guys should give these a try, just be prepared for a long day (it felt like it for me) of baking and assembling =) Thanks for stopping by!
