Don't ya just love a piece of calorie free cake... What??? 
Yes sir re.... Paper cake no calories here, well all depends what you put in it.

I used a few files from Designs on Cloud 9 and a stamp from Joys Life
Sorry I can't remember where I found the cake slice or the ric rac file, but the flourish, roses and the label are all from Designs on Cloud 9...

Love you to the Moon!

Hi, I just wanted to share a layout I did of my two LOVES!

When I tell my little one that I love him, he always tells me "I Love you more"
so I have to top that and I say "I Love you to the Moon and back"  so when Michelle created this patten I had to have it and I had an adorable picture in mind for it.  
I just love this photo of the two of them... this is a for sure Kodak moment, because it doesn't happen all that often when they are cute and cuddly together.
I used "sMOOches" for the title and the cow hanging on the moon and "Laurie's Labels" for the label that I stamped on from
The stamps are from "All around Sentiments" and "Everyday Occasions" stamps sets
Now I don't know if anyone noticed, but the saying on the photo is not correct.  
Here I was all proud that I made a great saying out of Joys stamps. 
(don't get me wrong it's not the stamps fault)
  After putting it all together I went to bed and suddenly woke in the middle of the night thinking "OMGosh it's not YOUR it's YOU'RE my everything..... LOL!!  
Oh well, that is what makes scrapping great right!  The little mistakes that add to the charm to the layout. 
Thanks for visiting!

Joy's Life Blog Hop with the ANIMALS 3D and CARD FOLDS

Hi there! If you happened on this post by accident, then hop on over to Joys blog to start for some great inspiration. If you came from Debbie's blog then you are on the right track.
Now onto my project...
I went with a card fold for this hop.
I needed to make a card for a co-worker and wanted to make something with room for several places for everyone to sign so I tried out a z-fold with an inner hinge card for room for more signatures.
I used a slider to keep the card closed.

The adorable bear image is a .png from Designs on Cloud 9's "Soda-lightful" pattern set
Close up of "You're Soda-lightful" stamp from "Yummy Puns"
this stamp fit so perfectly with DC9's pattern set!
