We had a big family reunion in North Carolina a couple of summers ago. Below is a tag I scrapped for the trip. The tag is made with scrap paper, embellishments, ribbon , glitter (I am especially fond of that Martha Stewart blue glitter–I don’t thin she makes it anymore) and ink. No paint. It’s been a long time since I have created without acrylic paint and molding paste as initial go-tos. Maybe I need to spend some time creating like we did during all those scrapbooking years.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the simplicity of the shapes and the color play from this festive summer tag.

Yup! Here is a great April Fool’s. When my oldest was playing spring baseball during his kindergarten year it was my turn to bring the post game snack. It is supposed to be a healthy snack but since I am me and it was April Fool’s Day I decided to bring a snack that looked healthy but was actually not.
That plate of spaghetti covered in meatballs is really cupcakes smothered in piped frosting, strawberry jam, Ferraror Roche chocolates and white chocolate shavings. The idea (and in this case I darn near followed the instructions verbatim) was from Hello! Cupcake. Great idea! I am glad I was lucky enough to have the perfect excuse to have a little fun! Copy my copy of Hello Cupcake or check out the book for the exact recipe and directions.
Now get cracking April Fool’s is only a few days away.
