Cake Topper is Made





That check list from yesterday seems to be helping me stay focused on all the things that I need to get done this weekend. I even was able to fit in a little walk to 7/11 for a Slurpee. Yummmm! So, I have finished my coursework for the weekend, I am on the second to last load of laundry, and will be starting the SMART Board document collection now. It is truly amazing how this tool has remediated my classroom instruction. The student feedback on it has been great as well. I am hoping to get the Smart Board stuff all done in a couple of hours. Then I would like to get outside for a little bit again. I need to get some photos developed to finish the guest book, and then I can finish that off too. However, I got the creative bug last night, and I was able to make some butterflies.



These were inspired from the blog Lo Lo's Craft Corner. She made hers with transparencies, embossing powder, and transparencies. However, the heat gun distorted the transparency. Additionally, the butterfly stamps I have aren't as pretty as that one. Miraculously, I don't have that butterfly stamp. So, when all else fails use the cricut. This darling little butterfly comes from the Indie Solution cartridge. I added the beads and wire antennae and these are so darling!

Thx for the sweet comment and linky! Sorry to hear you didn't have any luck with your heat gun. There are diff ones out there that have diff temp heat. The heat gun I used is from Michaels and it's specifically for more delicate items so that's why it didn't mess up the acetate. I luv how you used the Circut to create your butterflies. They turned out very nice. I like the style butterfly you picked. I was about to ask you if you wanted me to make some for your wedding but I see you have make them yourself...heehee. Great job!!

Congrats on your wedding and new home!! Are you getting married in BC? My hubby and I got married in Richmond, BC. We were both born there and lived there most of our lives. Most of our family and friends are there so we flew back to get married in 2007. Our 2 year wedding anniversary will be in a couple of months. We have been together for over 12 years. Wow does time fly!
