Well you all must think I left town. Not really. We had company for dinner Sat (9 people) and I cooked ribs, buffalo wings and home made Boston baked beans. among other things. Took me two days to cook the ribs but they were perfect. I also made daffodil cupcakes which are stuffed with lemon cream, and decorated to look like daffodils. Kinda labor intensive. Anyway it was a great time. Sunday I just sort of crashed and worked on my wedding cake. There is a picture at the end of this post. Very preliminary, but making all the favors and boxes takes time.
Today I thought I would digress a little from cards to make an Easter mailbox for my grand-daughter. It will be filled with candy and surprises. This was my first attempt at altering these and after a little trial and error I think it came out cute. I am entering this in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge, something springy. Also over at Scrapbookaholic by Abby challenge 2 is a spring time theme. Check out both of these.
