Prep work...

Tayvan is almost 3 years old!
I can't believe that my baby is totally toddler-ific. It seems like yesterday that she was truly my baby.
Her birthday party is next weekend, so I've been diving in to the prep work.

For this scrapping fiend, first up was the invitations of course!
I only had to make 10 (thank goodness for small close-knit families), but I had to do them super fast so I kept them simple.

What do y'all think?

I was so happy to play with a little bit of the Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine line. I fell in love, bought it, put it away...and kinda forgot about it. But when I pulled it out for the little tags, it just screamed " still love me!" Ssshhh, I didn't put it up yet b/c I want to play with it some more! LOL :) I think I have a date with some Sunshine Yellow tonight! :)

Next up for preparations...
cupcake lovies!

I said the other day that I'm going throuh a Suzy Homemaker phase again. Pretty hardcore one actually. I've been doing weekly menu plans, cooking dinner every night with lots of new recipes, baking all kinds of goodies every week. S.U.Z.Y. :) Check out Pioneer Woman of course, and a new fave is the Sunday Baker. :)

I think I've gone off the deep end a bit though. Yesterday, I had some freebie money to get a little sumpthin' for Staci at Target. Ended up with a super-cute skirt in one hand and a new cupcake pan in the other. Guess which one I bought. Yeah, the cupcake pan. And I'm sooo excited about it! LOL :) Looks like the deep end was...back there and I'm out in free water. LOL :)

My cupcake plans are...Death by Chocolate!
jumbo chocolate cupcakes
filled with chocolate mousse
topped with chocolate buttercream
For the actual party ones, I'll probably roll them around in choclate sprinkles too.
Never too much chocolate, right? ;)

In other scrappy news...
I am going to teach at Scrappin' Bunnies in McKinney in October!
I am so excited about this!!!
Emily is super-sweet and she does a fantastic job with this store. Everytime I see a newsletter from her with the list of new goodies, I feel like I need to *run* to get there before the goodies are gone! :)
So make a plan to shop on October 17th and come to my class in the same trip! :)

If you can't come to the class, Emily is selling the class kits too.
But really, its so much more fun in person.
Come, scrap, laugh at me, laugh with me, leave with a happy feeling in your heart and chocolate in your veins! :)

Mmmm, chocolate.
What did you say?
Why yes, I do have a one-track mind! ;)
XOXO...Stac :)

One of those cupcakes is for me, right? ;-)
