sugary sweet :)

Well the munchkins and myself have had the lurgy of late and being couped up inside with the rain what is better than having fun when you're not feeling one hundred percent so I called on my childhood memories and a magazine recipe I saw the day before ;) and decided to make octopus biscuits and smiley faces with the boys :) Ok so maybe not a great idea to load the kiddies up on sugar when they can't go outside but they loved it so much and apart from that, they mixed the icing, laughed, pulled some funny faces and overall had a blast and it was easy as a few snakes, a few smarties, jelly beans, banana lollies, plain biscuits(or bibi's as Corey calls them) and some icing and off you go....
These cards are for some cute little ladies who are having birthdays in the coming weeks - I cheat a little sometimes - I buy cheap packs of five cards from Big W (they have cute sayings and if I don't get a chance to cover them I have a cute card in the house) and then cover them with a mini LO...
It works for me and plus I don't have a scorer - honestly I think I am the most tool deprived scrapper around but it's not a huge problem as I seem to get by just fine :)
I have used some super cute products including Elle's studio Journal tags and cardstock(who buy the way have now got a stack of digi stuff you can buy and then print yourself - great thing is you have an endless supply of tags in your puter - for a journalling junkie like moi it's heaven!),Bella Bvd, Cosmo cricket ribbon BG and MM alpla's and AC thickers - some old stash some new and voila cute cutes in minutes :)
Loving bright colours and sugary sweetness, thanks for dropping by
