Happy Birthday Shawners

The perfect birthday cake for a guy who doesn't really like chocolate with the exception of Hershey Nuggets WITH Almonds!!!! I used the Celebrations paper. I bought 3 different sizes styrofoam discs to adhere the nuggets to. The base is a round cake board that I covered with paper and ribbon. The "ribbons" on the cake are paper. I cut the 35 with my silhouette! (oh how I love that machine!) I ended up using the hot glue gun to stick the nuggets to the styrofoam! Turned out cute! A week and a half later...there are only a few nuggets left! I think he liked it!!!

Flowers for a friend

This is a little bouquet of flowers that I made for a friend of mine. I wanted to really antique and distress them up and make them vintagey! I loved the paper I found at Archivers with the french words printed on it! I think that added a cool look! I used a die cut I had for the flowers.
