A Little Rainbow of Love

I am trying out party favors for an upcoming party, 
and my DD called my attention to these very 
cute little cakes in a jar. 

We have done a couple of trial runs and 
I think we have it down now. 
These are super fun - a little bit 
of rainbow - just right to take along!

 How very cute are these things?! 
Pastel colored vanilla cake, in a mason jar!
Then they are topped with creamy vanilla icing
and sprinkles - right inside the jar!

Because I simply cannot give out plain ol' mason jars, 
I had to gussy mine up a bit. I have used some
Bo Bunny papers, which I have sewn and inked. 
I added some MME ribbon, Prima Flowers and 
bling and crocheted flowers made by a sweet, generous friend of mine.

I hope everyone loves them.
And I hope they give my jars back!

Thanks for stopping by :) I would love to hear your thoughts on these.

My Sunshine

Today I have my LO for ColourQ  - Love the colors this week. Soft pastels are by far my faves!

I am so in love with Echo Park's new papers! 
Where have they been all my life ?!

All papers and cardstock stickers on this LO are from Echo Park - the 
Playground line I believe. I have also used Prima, Websters Pages,
Maya Road, Basic Grey and those polka dot 
brads - I can't remember who made those! 

I swear that the background paper is a pale pink - but no matter how 
many photos I took I could not make it come 
out looking that way in the photos! It is not lilac I swear :0)

How wonderful are these colors! My faves. 

Please stop by ColourQ  and see the wonderful things the DT 
has created this week and then join us in the fun!

I haven't been blogging much the last couple of weeks, I know. 
It is spring gardening season and my flower beds and roses need some love. 
I will be back to posting normally soon.

 Aren't those canvas Prima flowers to die for?!?!

at Scrapbook & Cards Today Blog for a challenge.

They have wonderful sketches over there from Pagemaps which I love. 

Today's LO is a pic of my DD in the Texas Wildflowers. We love our
wildflowers here in Texas, and every year at this time, we all flock 
to the roadside to take pics of our kids in the blue bonnets. This one year,
I headed for the indian paintbrushes instead.
I have used Bazzill, Basic Grey, Anna Griffin, Prima, Tattered Angels, Making Memories, My Minds Eye, American Crafts, ribbon & brads from my stash and VersaMagic and StazOn inks.

Here is the sketch I have used,,,
Thanks for stopping by today. We are in the middle of typical spring weather
