Daria's Birthday Cake

The cake is called Strawberries and Cream.  She wanted a strawberry cake for her birthday and this is what we came up with.  There are 5 layers inside this thing, whipped cream and sliced strawberries between each layer.  Whipped cream on the top and cream cheese icing on the side with the piping using the cream cheese (yup, I did that piping!!) And just in case they didn't like strawberries, I also made chocolate cupcakes.  Both were a HUGE hit with the kids mixed with the homemade vanilla ice cream.

My "Let's Scrap" take on a sketch

I found a great website with lots of inspiration and have applied to be on the design team.  Here is my submission.  Check out their great website and join, the link is in my sidebar!!

My take on a border that I found on the internet

I found this great border out on the internet one night surfing for inspiration.  It was just so cute so I decided to make my own.  The planes and sunshine are designed in SCAL2 (files are available if you want them, just email me), the bears are a pattern from Treasure Box Designs, the CUTE is done in SCAL and the word plane are white leather looking thickers.  Throw in some Prima flowers and's a border.

I noticed one of my rays of sunshine was missing but I did find it as soon as I came back to my desk and put it back on.  Pardon my background, I went looking for natural lighting and the only place I could find was outside on my porch.  The rug out there is ready for replacing!!
