SOC & Inspiration Cupcake Challenge

Hello All:

I hope your weekend was full of all kinds of wonderful things to see and do. I also hope you were able to relax if that's what you wanted to do. My weekend was full of plenty of things to see and do, but I'll just share the highlights with you.

A few weeks ago, I came across a really neat site--Scraps of Color a.k.a SOC. Since I joined the site it seems as though I log onto SOC at least once a day. Last week I was invited to join the ladies (Camille,  Joy, Pat, Lisa, etc.) of NYC&Me (smaller group within the Maryland group of SOC) for a crop in Glen Burnie. Learning of another place to shop was a benefit, but hanging out with the ladies of NYC&Me was best of all. They were just so nice and a pleasure to be with. On top of that, they are excellent scrappers. Ladies: I look forward to hanging out with all of you in September. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon.

Have you ever volunteered for something with nothing but good intensions? And then, it happens. It's time to carry out the task. Well I did. I volunteered to bring cake to my church's annual summer picnic today. Of course I could just bring a regular 9"x13" cake in. No, I had to take it to the next level. I had this great idea to make cake pops for the children. No problem, right?  Yes, there was a problem. I was suppose to begin this little project Friday night. Then, that was pushed back until Saturday evening. That didn't happen either because I stayed at the mall way to late. By the time I returned, I was exhausted. So, I got up early (way before the chickens) this morning to make these cake purple cake pops. The pops went over well with the children. (I'll post a copy of the cake pop recipe tomorrow.)



One of my very dear friends recently purchased a home in Virginia. I tied the card I made for Angela with this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I love the colors we were given to work with.  Below is the inspiration photo.





My interpretation...




The DP is from a Provo product. The houses were created with a SU wheel I purchased some time ago. The images were colored using COPIC markers. With the use of dimenisionals, one house stands out from the rest. The windows in the homes are glazed over with Glossy Accents. I embossed the sentiment from Clear Stamps We've Moved stamp set and I finished off the card with a ribbon treatment. Oh, how I love ribbon. I think it's my favorite embellishment.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by The Peddler's Gallery. Come back real soon.

Lorie, It was so nice to meet you this past weekend, and I look forward to scrapping with you again soon. The SOC board has so many talented women, and it was a pleasure to find another sistah here in the D-M-V.
