This time it is my choice for the theme and the photograph of my grandson Brandan, taken just after he had clearly wrestled with a tricky bit of chocolate cake gave me the inspiration for the theme. so without further ado the theme is
Let Them Eat Cake
We are looking for cake themed projects, any type or size of cake will do as long it is cake and lets be honest it is a good way to enjoy calorie free cake using it in crafting so here is that photo and my project .
I chose a lovely rich cream card as my base for this 12x12 page and then used papers and a trimmed down topper from the Shaun Jenkins Collection CD this is great for scrapbooking and card making alike as there are some wonderfully versatile designs included.
The titles are felt adhesive letters picked up in my local Hobbycraft shop.
I layered several papers behind the photo and added a paper doily and three cupcakes made from Martha Stewart paper clay.
I typed some little phrases onto white card and trimmed these and added them around the layout. I used 'undercurrent' font and colour matched them to the colours in the papers using MCS elite.
I trimmed the Happy Birthday off the topper and added the image to the bottom of the page to mirror the three little cupcake embellishments.
Oh and if you think the chocolate cake is messy wait till you see what he did with a chocolate pudding and a spoon.
