Women's Health Handout

I was asked to make a handout for the Women's Health activity we are having at church this week.  It's all about taking time out for your self, pampering yourself and nurturing your spirit.  So what do you do when your asked to make a handout?  Well you get your besties to get on board with you and they comply.  I love that time with my friends just chatting, thanks Liz and Monica for coming to my rescue, I really needed the help and sure do appreciate your friendships!
We decided to keep these handouts simple.  Monica had a bunch of tags already cut out so we simply embellished them.  There are three handouts to choose from.  Two scented bath salts, Lavender and Mandarin Lime (that one is fantastic) and we have an oatmeal bath soak for those with sensitive skin.

These are a fun little gift and could be given as a hostess gift too, or just because.  I know I would love one of these anytime.  Now go do something just for you!

Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there, but especially to my Father in Law Merlin and my Husband Kent.  My kids are pretty darn lucky to have these two special men in their lives that think the world of them and make them feel like they are the most special little kids in the world. 

My husband loves Dad's Root beer, I usually only buy one at a time but for Fathers Day a case was in order.  Now I'm off to make these, Daddy's Day request!

Girly Cupcakes for the Spa Party

The cupcakes are ready for Coconut's spa party in the morning.  I think I may actually like working with fondant more when it's for cupcakes, than trying to battle a cake.  That and I'm think I'm starting to get the hang of it a bit better.
I took the day off work today to get ready for her party, when coconuts got home from school she was so excited to see these toppers for her cupcakes.  Hope her little girly friends enjoy them.

Heavenly Strawberry Roll

I love my Kraft What's Cooking magazine.  I found this recipe and had to try it, it was light and fluffy and delicious.  My kids swallowed it whole and wanted seconds.  Don't you just love summer, strawberries, sunshine and sitting on the deck enjoying a piece of this.
I sure did!

Spa Day Party Invitations

This is my first attempt at making a photo invitation.  I bought the picnik premium package a while back and didn't realize they had the option of making your own birthday invitations!

I simply picked one of their already made templates, I added Coconut's picture and the text with the Birthday details.  They also have these cute "stickers" you can add.  I added the number seven candle.  She loves them and is getting really excited to finally be having her party!

Handmade Cards

First of all I"m back, really it's me.  I had a pretty intense last few weeks.  I'll spare you the details, but it involved a ton of studying, a few tests and an ear that feels like my son shoved play dough in it and I even lost my voice for the weekend!  The fun part though was that I had my first card order from a sweet friend.  She gave me a list of cards she wanted, the age range and whether it was for a girl or a boy, then she let me use my creativity to come up with the cards.  I had a ton of fun (and maybe one or two creative blocks) coming up with these bad boys!  What do you think.
 Here are some of my favourites.  These are a few boy birthday cards.  I didn't realize how many girl punches and stamps I have until it was time to get creative for a boy.

 This card was my absolute favourite, I loved how it turned out.
Thanks for stopping in I hope you didn't forget about me while I was gone!
