12 Days of Cupcakes - Continued

So, sorry for not posting this sooner.  There was a memory card issue, someone thought it would be funny to hide it, luckily after all the pictures had been taken.  
Day 6:  Tealight Cupcake (I forgot to take a picture before I gave it, so this is from SCS)
Tutorial found here.

Day 7:  Carnation Cupcake (it kind of looked like a cupcake)

Day 8:  Cupcake Card Holder/Organizer

Day 9:  Cupcake (Themed) Cards

Day 10:  Cupcakes (This started out as a Cupcake Kit, until I found out her birthday was the next day.  I couldn't have her make her own cupcakes on her birthday.)

Day 11:  Cupcake Ornament

Day 12:  Cupcake Gift Card Holder (tutorial found here.)

Whew!  Thanks for looking.

Inktegrity Hump Day Inspiration #26

This week's challenge is to use your favorite Non-traditional Holiday colors.  I chose purples and white.  Come and play with us here.  It will be fun.  I used one of Joni's new images "Baby Slusser"  He's so cute.  

This will probably be my posting for Inktegrity's Design Team (although I hope I have time to complete next week's challenge too).  The fall term comes to an end next week.  I have enjoyed my time with Inktegrity.  Everyone has been very encouraging as well as inspirational.  I only wish I had more time to devote to commenting on others' blogs.  One of my resolutions for the new year is to comment more on the blogs I love to visit.  I know how much comments mean to me, it is only right to send some love out into the blogisphere.
Thanks for looking!

Twelve Days of Cupcakes

Every year the teachers and staff at my school have a "12 Days of Christmas"  Secret Santa/Advent Angel Exchange.  This year I decided to get creative and make it a "Twelve Days of Cupcakes" Christmas.  This is day one - "Spa Cupcake"  inside the cupcake paper is a glass tea light holder (with candle), sitting on top is a bath poof and the "cherry" is a small rose shaped soap.  
Day 2 Cupcake sticky note holder with pen
Day 3 Felt cupcake ornament (the cherry is a button, of course)
Day 4 Cupcake box (the digichick) filled with Hershey's Kisses
Day 5 Sock cupcake (rolled pair of Christmas socks wrapped with crimped paper to look like a cupcake).
You'll have to come back for the rest of the days, I can only make 5 days at a time.  This idea could also be altered leading up to the days before a birthday/anniversary.  Thanks for looking.
