What a weekend!

Lots and lots going on, and I've been busy busy busy! I also spent another 8 hrs. in the car yesterday. This time it wasn't to Alabama, but I traversed the state of Tennessee for my sister's baby shower. It was a really special time, a time of giving thanks for these babies, and remembering that God is faithful. She even let me take (just a few) shots of her. Here's my favorite. The ETA right now on the twins is sometime in July.

And then at the shower.

There's lots and lots going on in my scrappy world right now too! Today I'm hosting the 4th birthday challenge over at Urban Anthology, which is a birthday altered item. You can check out the challenge here on the blog.

For this challenge I made Caroline a birthday hat using the May kit. I'm really excited with the way it turned out!

I used Pink Paislee butterfly paper, Basic Grey's Porclein (paper)lace with Prima flowers. The pearls and the Thicker '3' are from my stash.

Also for the challenge I quickly came up with this cupcake table decor piece. I've been wanting to make something like this since I saw Jennifer McGuire's Christmas tree one she donated for the Scrap Etc. (now closed :( ) Fall Event. I saw how quick and easy it was to make, but what a fun way to decorate too, so I made mine for a birthday. I literally made it in 5 min. using a cupcake diecut and some scrap papers. I'll need to go back and add some stickles and bling to it to make it more festive. But I still wanted to share.

And my last little tidbit of fun info is that I heard from Julie over at 52Sketches!, and she's asked me to be a part of her sketch DT! I'm thrilled, and can't wait to get to work on the LOs based on her awesome sketches. They totally inspire me to create!

52 Sketches...52 Weeks

I think that's all for now, so I'll stop rambling. Hope you had a wonderful weekend, and a great start to the week
