Birthday Board

I know these are done all the time but I wanted to show you my take on it.
I started out with a board that my husband cut for me. I then placed the vinyl on. (Vinyl was purchased from Expressions Vinyl)

Next I took some small hooks and screwed them into the bottom.
For my board, I didn't want the names hanging all down the wall, so I printed out all the names with the birth date. I then took clear contact paper and covered them. Next I cut them all out. I bought some binder rings, punched holes in the names and added them to the rings!

I was so excited about my finished product. Now I have to make me one. I gave this to my mother for mothers day!

Flower Basket

I like to every now and then take a treat or a little something to the ladies I visit. I found this cute little basket in the Silhouette store and decided to make it for my sweet ladies.

First I downloaded the pattern from Silhouette and then sent the pattern to my Silhouette machine.

I found some cute two sided cardstock and let the machine cut out the basket for me! So easy.

Little White Crocheted Dress

Just finished my first crocheted dress. I'm kind of new at the whole crochet thing so it is still hard for me to follow a pattern. I started with a pattern and then couldn't figure it out so I just started making it up. This is what I ended up with, a sweet little lacy dress!

How Does Your Garden Grow

I had to share my gardening story. We haven't had a garden in about 15 years. So this year we decided we would try a little garden as you can see in the pictures. I was so excited when stuff actually started growing. Then the other afternoon my son told my husband and I to hurry and come look. There was a rock chuck sitting in our garden. I thought it was so cute and so I grabbed my camera to take a few shots. You can't tell in the pictures but he was pretty good sized. After my husband showed me how it had eaten all the kale, peas and lettuce I didn't think it was so cute anymore. So much for my garden. I hope we can catch it soon!

Awesome Tape Dispenser

I love this and the American Woodworker. Go HERE to the American Woodworker for the tutorial. I really need this at my house. Always looking for tape. The blade on it is the best also.

Hamburger Cake and Fries

I made this hamburger cake for my son's Birthday.
I started by making a round yellow cake. I was making cupcakes so I didn't want a large cake. This is a six inch pan.

After the cake cooled I cut of the top and bottom and ate the center. :)

Next I made a milk chocolate cake in the six inch pan. I cut the top and bottom off and saved the center for the burger.

I made some yellow MMF and cut it in a square for the cheese. I then made some buttercream frosting and colored some red and some green. I then put it in a sandwich bag and cut the corner off. I then added some red for the catsup and green for some lettuce. Add the top, sprinkle with sesame seeds and you've got yourself a hamburger cake!

For the fries I made sugar cookie dough.

I rolled it out and cut out long strips. I then sprinkled them with sugar before and after baking.

I also made mini hamburgers out of cupcakes the same as I made the cake.

The kids loved them!

She didn't want it at first but the minute she bit into it and it was sweet she couldn't get enough!

Wizards of Waverly Place Cake

I made this cake for my grand daughters seventh Birthday. She loves Selena Gomez and Wizards of Waverly Place. The cake was Almond Cherry.
I used three different colors for the layers inside to match the outside of the cake.
