T G I F

What a week, what a week!  
When I took on the project of constructing a diaper cake for a friend's baby shower, I had no idea that it would take me two days...sometimes you just wish that you weren't quite so OCD...it turned out so cute though. I've seen the elaborate and the over-the-top-elaborate diaper cakes, but elaborate does not describe my friend, Kristi.  She doesn't like a lot of clutter, so neat-and-simple was the way that I decided to go.
 Now, I know you're probably looking at this and asking "it took you two days to do this?" But wrapping those diapers just 'so-so' takes time and skill LOL  I think she will love it ♥

LITTLE YELLOW BICYCLE
Wowee!  I received my LYB Head of the Class goodies this week...such FUN to work with!  I will share it here just as soon as it goes live on their blog, so be sure to check back.  I created a mini album and there was some cork-board involved *wink* I had a blast and look forward to doing more projects with the material.

I HEART IPPITY
I doubled this card as my latest project for I Heart {Ippity}, as well as  for a challenge over at My Scrapbook Nook :)  I will be a part of the CARDS Team at the Nook beginning in November, but I'm getting my feet wet by doing as many of the October challenges as possible.  But I digress!  Here is my card using the Faith & Blooms Stamp Set IPK-125 and the Nook October Kit
 
I have a plethora (one of my all-time FAV words) of cards stacking up...I will be listing some of them at my Etsy shop soon!

We begin our district play tonight in football...had last Friday off...not fun.  I think the consensus is that we just need to forgo "off" weeks LOL  The boys are itching to get out there and play. Zach's 8th grade team is still undefeated;  they have not lost a game since they began playing together in the 7th grade.  
So, I need to get my sparkly orange and black BEARS shirt ironed and get ready to head out to feed the team.  I hope to be sharing my LYB project with you very soon!
Ya'll be good!
