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 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 ♥

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 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!
