Makeup 4 The Weekend #23

Hello all and HAPPY FRIDAY! I am SOOO glad the week is over. That means a few more days and we're off to Disneyland! WOO HOO! My gosh I haven't been to Disneyland in AGES and I live maybe 20 minutes away? My BIL works there and he gets passes...so since it's Lizzie's birthday on the 16th...he's giving us the passes to have her birthday there! Awww...isn't he sweet!?

Ok...now onto what I'm here for...lol...Paper Makeup's Makeup 4 The Weekend! The challenge set by Lisa K. this week is to create anything using a template! Since I had been itching to use Lauren Meader's Pick of the Petals template...I decided to print it out and work on it! This is my first...so it's kinda hideous...lol...NO...I kid! Still I had to make it because I made this HUGE cupcake for a very deserving person who has no idea how much she's impacted my life and that of my family. She'll know who I'm talking about when she receives it. ;)

I used Creamy Caramel for the base and Cameo Coral (I think that's the name...lol) since I didn't have pink to match the cupcake. Then I crocheted a larger flower to top it off and punched a few leaves and a butterfly. The center is a flatback pearl. The 3X3 card was made using the stamps set Sprinkles and Cherries.

Alright...I'll let you go so you can play along with us. Check the Paper Makeup Stamps blog to check out the full deets! ;) Hope to see my friends...my followers play along!

Ciao!
