Sketch challenge at Lia Stampz!

It's that time again... another challenge with Lia Stampz!  This one is a sketch:

I'm sure you can handle this one, ladies!

Here's my version with my cutie patootie Lia image:

All paper, cardstock, and ribbon are SU! and both images are designed by Lia Stampz.

Also going to enter this in these challenges:
The Scrapbooking Queen's digi Monday challenge (Halloween)

On a personal note, I haven't been around much lately.  I hurt myself at work and after I come home from an 8 hour day, I'm exhausted and sore.  I have just enough energy to scrounge up dinner, take a shower, and hit the hay.  Hopefully I get better really soon so I can go back to normal and make stuff! Lol, I really need to get started on my Halloween projects!

'Till next time!

Monkey Invites

I had to create some monkey invites for a special little boy!  Mom gave me a picture of the cake they ordered, which was baby blue with monkeys, had little white flowers, and had bees all around it.  Here's the matching invite I came up with:


It took an entire weekend to make all 30 invites.  It has 3 layers and sponged flowers with rhinestones.  Also teeny tiny little bees stamped over it.  Everything is SU! Cartridge was Create a Critter.  

'Till next time!

Princess Picks

Someone contacted me about making some princesses on picks.  The princesses needed blonde hair and blue eyes, crowns, and wands.  Here's what I came up with:

Aren't they adorable?

Here's a close-up of one of them.

Everything (cardstock, glitter glue, pearls, rhinestones, ink) are by SU! The face is by Peachy Keen.  Cartridge I used is Paper Doll Dress Up.

Angry Bird Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago I had a young gal pal of mine ask me to make her birthday cake.  She said she wanted Angry Birds.  Here's what I came up with:

(my kitty adds extra credit to the picture!)

I made rainbow cupcakes (just make the batter for a white cake and divide it into 5 bowls and tint each bowl a different color.  spoon each color into a muffin tin and bake as usual).  I topped them off with homemade buttercream.  The picks I got inspiration from Dixie Delights and Crafty Kylie.  They were used by hand cutting (beaks, eyebrows, mustaches) and Stampin Up punches (2 step bird, owl punch, circle punches).  They didn't take as long as I expected!  Much easier than trying to shape them in fondant or pipe them.  I also added some flowers with some MPS cupcake stamp sentiments.

Close up of Mr. Pig.  All supplies used by Stampin Up!

Close up of Angry Bird.

The whole crew.

When you take a bite!  I used red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.  I think I could've fit a violet in there too... next time, I guess!

Entering this in the Creative Card Crew's anything goes challenge, Decorate to Celebrate's anything goes challenge and the I Did it Creations anything goes challenge.

Hope you guys like em!  My young gal pal sure did! :)
