Cupcakes and pom poms!

So here is my second cupcake layout of our California trip. We visited alot of cupcakeries and this was definitely a favourite of mine - Yummy cupcakes in Santa Monica, we tried popcorn cupcakes, chocolate & coconut cupcakes and rootbeer frosting shots - my favourite flavours and they tasted spot on! They had so many flavours to choose from and even sold cupcakes made in a jar!

I think the page still needs something in the top right hand corner and my journalling was done in a light green pen which doesn't really show up so might change this!

I've also spent this weekend wrapping presents and I couldn't wait to make some pom poms following the simple tutorial video on this blog

All you need is some wool, sharp scissors and your hand! I love how easy they are to make and they look really effective as a decorative touch on christmas presents - my favourite part is when you have to give them a haircut!!

Road trip!

So Mel was right one of the highlights of Arne's trip was when we filled up with petrol and he got the squidgee out to clean the windows - look at that pure enjoyment on his face! This was the number plate on our hire car, I got lots of pics of number plates and that's another story! (and page..)

Cali dreamin'!

I made this page to show a selection of the places, activities & food that we enjoyed (or in the case of the apples talked about enjoying but never actually did!) In the middle I stitched the square in place and inside I am going to have little journalling cards about what's in each square... coming next a road trip page and the highlight of Arne's trip!

Double jelly belly fun!

This double layout about our trip to jelly belly factory took quite a while, I wanted the mural to run all along the bottom but my pics didn't quite match/line up so I had to do a bit of chopping and piecing together!

The other layout is my version of our santa monica pier pics on the forrest gump bench!

Copy cat!

The latest of my california scrap pages. I don't think Mel can accuse me of copying her 'big breakfast' layout, just the title but great minds think alike!
