Cupcake Birthday Blog Hop & My Craft Spot DT Post!

Welcome to The Cupcake Birthday Blog Hop. First I would like to say Happy Birthday to Sylvia , Hope all your wishes come true! If you arrived here from Becka Blog you are on the right track. If you just happen to stumble upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning please Click Here!

So whats a Birthday without a Sweet Treat?

Not only is this a cupcake, but look whats attached to the cherry! Direction for this project can be found over at Fabulously Artsy.
( prepared to laugh)

For this hop I decided to do two projects, not only is it a blog hop but it is time for another wonderful challenge at My Craft Spot! This weeks challenge is to create a project with something Sweet!

So I kept with the Birthday Theme and added some very yummy looking candy!

These great photos were taken this year at Jasper National Park on my brother in laws 65Th Birthday .

I used twine for the banner, which comes in so many beautiful colour's and can be purchased at My Craft Spot along with the Happy Birthday sentiment which is also from My Crafts Spot Inside and out Stamp Set Sentiments #2.

I used Glossy Accents on both the sucker and candy apple to make it shine, just like a real candy apple would.

Cartridges used for this project were George and Basic Shapes, Paisley for the suckers, Celebrations for the candies and October 31st for the candy apple. Don't forget to check out this weeks challenge at My Craft Spot. I am sure there will be some yummy sweets for this weeks challenge.

Now if you have stuck with me this long, just wait to you see the Yummy Sweet Blog Candy I have for you today! One lucky follower will receive $25.00 in SVG files from Design On Cloud 9 !
