The last couple weeks have been a whirlwind of activity! We just got home from Kansas City after attending my niece’s graduation party.  She’s a very sweet girl and her party was a lot of fun!  I’m also very happy that the six dozen cake balls I made for her party were a hit!  My Dad is funny.  He said, “Why would you mash up a perfectly good cake?”  Well Dad, when you mix the crumbled cake with frosting and dip it in Almond Bark people seem to like it. 🙂  I’m having trouble keeping my boys out of the cake balls we’ve made for Abby’s party.  I don’t think I’ve told you, but ALL my kids are home!  Ryan is home from college doing an internship in West Des Moines for the summer.  Sean flew home from Seattle on Thursday evening and will be here until May 31.  Keegan and Abby are here because they are still in high school. My Mommy heart is happy having our family of six all under one roof again. 🙂

Last night, our dear friend’s oldest daughter, Lauren, got married.  She was a gorgeous bride and had an elegant black and white wedding.  Lauren likes simple yet elegant, so I tried to make her a card that fits her style.  I also was honored to make the card box for her wedding.

I cut the “Lauren” and “Andrew” from the wedding invitation and mounted it on Basic Black cardstock.  The flowers are made with the Succulent Framelits Dies retiring May 31, 2017 and currently 50% off at only $16.50!

The flowers had Wink of Stella on them and were gorgeous in real life!  Best of all, Lauren was very happy with the card box I made for her.

I hope if you don’t already own the Botanical Builders Framelits and Succulent Framelits Dies you’ll consider getting them now at half price, only $16.50 each until May 31 or while supplies last.  These framelits work best with the Precision Base plate.

My Pedal Off the Pounds weigh in went really well.  Part of it was I was wearing jeans the week before and biking shorts this week. The other thing was I had celebrated my birthday the entire week before so I actually weighted more than normal.  Anyway the scale showed me at -7 lbs.  I’m sure that will never happen again, but it was a very nice start.

Blessings,

Beth 🙂
