Night Garden and Golf Bag

Well this was a busy week for me.   My daughter turned 2 on Saturday and my son turns 4 tomorrow.  So we do one big party for both of them.   The week is full of party planning, picking up items and of course making the cake.   This year my son requested a In The Night Garden cake, and thankfully my daughter also loves this show so I was able to get away with making one big cake rather then 2 cakes.

Because this theme is not as popular in Canada as it is in England they don't have party themed items here to purchase.   So I got creative and make cookie flowers for all the kids to decorate.   Here is my daughter and son with their cookies.
 The few days before the party it was work as usual and I had a cake order to fill as well.  They requested a golf bag cake.  I kept it black and white to honestly keep it easier on myself with having so much on my plate this week.  I love the contrast it ended up giving the cake.

Workshop layouts

Okay so I am always on my workshop ladies to be actually using their layouts and not just collecting them.   We actually have a draw each week and if you bring a previous workshop layout with some pictures on it you can be entered into the draw.

Well I have another confession to make.  Besides from collecting swap layouts (see below post) I also have a good collection of workshop layouts without pictures.  I try to put pictures on them when I can but truthfully I forget about the layouts half the time and end up scrapbooking something new for the set of pictures.   So while I was sorting through my swap layouts I also pulled out my workshop layouts and put a few pictures on.  I wanted to post so the ladies can see the finished product as they always look so much nicer with pictures on them.  

Using up some swap layouts

Some of you are familiar with swaps while many aren't.   A swap is were a group of people all sign up to participate, each person making a specific number of the same layouts - usually 6-8 layouts.   You send your completed layouts into the host, who also receives the same number of layouts from all the other participants and she swaps them out so that each person receives one layout back from everyone in the group.  So basically you send in 6-8 of the same layouts and get 6-8 different layouts back.   It's like Christmas when the package comes, getting to see what everyone has created.

I participate in swaps all the time as I really enjoy them and it keeps me creative.   However I have become somewhat of a swap hoarder.  I have tons of layouts in my scrapbook room without any pictures on them.  So my goal this year is to put as many of those layouts to good use as I can.  

Here are some of the swap layouts I finally put pictures on.   I don't know who created the layout so unfortunately can't give create to the amazing scrapbookers out there :( 

I loved this layout as soon as I seen it.  It was part of a swap awhile back that was all boy themed.  I just didn't have the pictures to put on it at the time.   My son and husband went to Monster trucks a few months back so I used this layout to get those pictures done.  She put a little journal pocket, which I also used to put the tickets in for keepsake.  

This was actually the layout I made for the same boys swap.  I finally put some pictures on it from a camping trip we had a few weeks ago.  

This layout is from an paper pack themed swap.   I hate scrapbooking Easter for some reason so this was perfect to be able to put some pictures on an already done layout and call it a day :)

Choo, Choo

It was fun to see this one come to life.   So many times when I start a cake I look at it praying I can make it look okay, then as you add each piece it comes to life to nicely.   
The trains are real and are the birthday boys well loved toys that we washed up and added to the cake.

Oh, the beach

This cake just makes you want to take a trip to the beach!  This was a cake I did for my daycare provider Linda.  It's her birthday this weekend and since we won't see her we took the cake to her today.  She always wears flip flops around the house, winter though summer so this was a fun one to make for her.
