Every party has at least one delicious cake for the tasting, and when handed a slice, barely are we able to take just one bite. When we spotted this cake over at Pinterest, with it's buttery sweet, pink frosting and itty bitty sprinklers, this week's Creative Weekly theme was a given! How could we seriously resist the cuteness of sprinkles? This week's theme entitles you to one slice of yummy cake with a side of color-ific confetti..and a round of Crate Paper sprinkle-inspired creations!
My girls just LOVE sprinkles. My local market has a TON of colors to choose from, and what's not to love? This led to a few pictures of my girls with their ice cream cones and sprinkles, which led them to a "sprinkle fight" and they were everywhere! I wanted to convey that feeling on my page, and compare the love of having a sister as a best friend to the love of always having sprinkles on your ice cream. I punched them with my confetti punch, scattered them in different places, covering the areas with glue and glitter, and the confetti. It was a lot of fun!
The sprinkles theme immediately made me think of birthday celebrations. So, I decided to document my past birthday with this latest layout! I used Little Bo Peep papers, tags and brads (they're not just for babies!), along with a couple of chipboard pieces from the Pretty Party collection. Also, I immediately thought of making confetti-"sprinkles" for my page! I've been saving some mailing envelopes so I could use the cellophane windows and they worked perfectly on here to hold my paper sprinkles in place! I also embellished the confetti pockets with tags and chipboard alphas - clever, eh?
We're going to continue with this theme the remainder of the week, and if you've something to say about it, or add, the comment area is just below. There's plenty of space, so jot down a word or two! Take care!
