I'm so excited, this is my first time playing along with any of the Paper Smooches challenges. I have been collecting stamps for a bit and finally broke them out to play with. For this challenge I used one of the new PS sets, Flap Happy and one I have had, Sentiment Sampler, the first PS set I purchased. This week is a trend challenge and the trend is cameras/Polaroids. Do your remember those fun camera's and waiting for the pictures to appear? And then over the years watch the colors fade? Well these shapes seem to be the latest thing for die cuts and they are so fun to use!
I had to share a picture of a cake I made today. We went to a good friends 50th birthday party today and I was asked to bake the cake. I am not a fancy baker by any stretch but wanted the cake to be special. I did a search for a chocolate cake recipe and found the most amazing one! Here is a link to the recipe on Simply Recipes blog. This recipe was for a 3 layer cake and it looked more like 4 once it was frosted. I made 2 cakes for today, one was chocolate and the other a snickerdoodle cake, just in case someone does not like chocolate.
