Provo Craft's Hello Thursday and a Pool Party!

You know what time of the month is super fun? Hello Thursday! This is when Provo Craft reveals their new cartridges for the month. This month the cartridge was designed by Teresa Collins called Chic and Scary. This cartridge is Halloween for grown ups! It has a flair of sophistication to it.....which is so Teresa! I decided to make a faux Halloween cupcake using a styrofoam ball and texture paste. I gave it a generous coat of glitter and sprinkled a few "eyeballs" into the frosting. ; ) The cupcake holder was one of the cuts on the cartridge.....and yes there are more available! How cool is that? For the spider's body, I used black Flower Soft.....he looks sort of tarantula like don't you think? I added tiny purple rhinestones for his eyes to make him look a bit more menacing.


Here is a close up of the menacing spider.......... ; )

If you would like to see what Teresa's cartridge has to offer in its entirety, be sure to visit the Cricut Blog! I also have all of the cut info available there as well as other fabulous projects!

Last week I had Cort's 16th birthday with all of her friends. Her best friend Patty turned 17 and her mom and I decided to celebrate the girls' birthdays together. Here they are in all of their swimsuit and cake glory!! :D

Don't ya love this cheerleading cake?!

Here is Sue and I with our birthday girls.......

Patty......looking so innocent and sweet! Believe me....this girl is a firecracker! ; )

Here's me all squinty eyed with Cort and her wild do!

I am sorry for my lack of posts this week.....hopefully when school starts and we get into a routine around here, I will be able to get back on track!


Have a great weekend! And thank you, thank you for stopping by!!!
