"Please let my cake be chocolate..."
Haha! :D Isn't this the funniest picture of Isiah? He was actually clapping and I happened to catch him with his eyes closed. I was giggling typing out the title of the post, just because it was so appropriate. Either that or he's saying, "Please help me get through this day with all these crazy people in my house!!" LOL!
And speaking of cake, I wanted to show you what we're all partying about all week long over on Modern Sugar Blvd. Remember all the sneaky peekys? Well here is my image in her entirety:
Isn't she pretty? Her name is In The Garden Gal. She's so classy, I keep thinking of Bree Van De Kamp from Desperate Housewives. haha! (Okay, for all you DHW buffs, aka Bree Hodge.)
Remember me mentioning that image I kept resizing? It's that adorable flower pot! The actual size that comes to scale with this image is the one with the red flowers. I printed it out in various sizes so she could have a container garden.
Here's a wider view of my project. It is a holder that I altered as my MIL's mother's day gift for her gardening magazines. :D These are also sold at Michaels in the unfinished wood section near the other magazine holders that I love. I chose this style because I wanted a taller and more solid pallette to work on with this image. I covered the entire piece wtih leftover DP (from my Mary Kay invites) and then hand cut white cardstock to imitate lattice. She's colored in copics, adorned with pearls and primas, and popped up on dimensionals along with a chosen few of the terra cotta pots. Go and visit Rachel, Mary, Georgia and Sharon for more amazing samples using this digi image!
You can find In the Garden Gal HERE at MSB's new store today starting at Noon MST. And stay tuned, there's also another set of gals being released on Friday and Sunday. The other image that I have is pending a release, so while you won't see any more sneak peeks here on my blog, I will be sure to direct you to the other Sugars who have them!
There's also a current challenge going on over at MSB's blog. Join in on the fun with Shop Girl, the original image that they released for the DT call. The Sugar candy for the winner is sweet!
Thank you for popping by, have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!
*Love and Aloha*
