I don’t have any children, but I have two dogs. They don’t talk the way children can, but they can communicate via the puppy face or by barking. They don’t walk on two legs; they walk on four. …and even though they are furry little critters, I consider them my furkids.
…and just like any other Mommy, you have to celebrate their birthdays, right?! Yeah, yeah… I know that both Maui and Hilo are spoiled, but I can’t help it. They are too CUTE and SWEET.
Last year for Maui’s birthday, I made her a pupcake. She devoured her cake in about five minutes. Here’s a little recap of that:
That pupcake didn’t even have a chance. 😉 Shortly after the massacre, Maui went into a food coma. Definitely an unhealthy thing, but it was too cute! Besides, it only happens once a year.
This year, I decided on coming up with a different recipe for her pupcake. I’ve got to be careful what I bake for both of them because she’s allergic to just about everything. I added her favorites – sweet potatoes and chicken. Check this out:
I created that recipe from scratch, so if you are interested, feel free to contact me. 🙂
We have birthday gifts for the munchkin too, but we will open them later this afternoon, so stay tuned for pictures — that is if I remember to take pictures. LOL. 🙂
I did want to share a couple of things scrapbook related before I head out and grab something to eat.
This month’s theme is scraplifting a layout from one of the Contributing Artists to the blog! To play, scraplift a layout from the list below, and post your creation to this thread. If you would prefer to not post it, email it to email@example.com. Layouts must be posted here or emailed by March 15th midnight EST to qualify.
Two people will win prizes! First prize will be the paper pack from the BRAND NEW Homespun Chic line from GCD Studios and five embellishments from that line to go along with it!! Second prize will be a $15 dollar gift certificate to the scrapbook.com store!!

…and because I’m a contributing artist to IFS, I’d love if you would scraplift my chosen layout. Of course, if you check out the actual challenge, there are other layouts to “lift”. My “liftable” layout is below:
No, you don’t have to use that many photos. No, it does not have to be black and white photos. No, you don’t have to use the same colors. However, if you want to copy those aspects, feel free to. I’d really LOVE LOVE LOVE to see what you do with that layout. It’s not one of my favorite creations, so I thought if someone “lifted” it, I’d start to like it. Good luck, and I’m REALLY REALLY REALLY hoping to see you create something with my layout! 🙂
For any questions on any of those challenges, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be back soon!
