Celebrating Cupcakes

I wanted to try something a little different with my Lana ladies class, so decided to make an Explosion Box, just a simple one - don't want to totally freak them out, LOL! (Hi gals!) I chose cupcakes as the theme cos, well let's face it, who doesn't love cupcakes? Plus I have a stamp set and a template for cupcakes, so hey, that was a no-brainer! And I likes them no brainers, LOL!

So here's the outside of the box, a simple 7 cm square. I used the adorable Tea Party papers (how perfect is that name, he he!) and the cupcake stamp from Party Hearty.

The sentiment on the top is from Sweet Little Sentiments, which if my memory serves me correctly (which it doesn't always these days, sigh!) is a hostess set.

Then you open up the box to find ....

... a 3D cupcake! This is made from a template by Hot Off The Press and I got it at my LSS. How cute is that?

Topped off with a flower from the Boho Blossoms punch and a brad to match, all completely fat free!

During the week I was honoured to receive the Swap Sisters Bonny Blog Award from Olga. Many thanks for the award Olga! You can check out the lovely work that Olga does here. The conditions of the award are:

So, here goes with 5 things about myself:
  1. I was nearly born in a car, as my parents got a flat tyre on the way to the hospital to have me and my poor dad had his MIL in the back seat!
  2. The only nuts I like are salted peanuts and cashews
  3. I am very long sighted
  4. I've been on TV twice
  5. I love trivia, attend trivia nights once a month and have even run a trivia night fundraiser for juvenile diabetes
Now, to nominate 5 people for this award (in no particular order):
  1. Liam Pucher (always amazing me with her talent for 3D creations)
  2. Teneale Williams (who has influenced my own creative journey enormously and whose work I 99.9% adore)
  3. Andrea Buckland (a lovely lady who creates simply beautiful things)
  4. Robyn Irving (who, although she hasn't posted in WAY too long, is very creative and makes gorgeous projects)
  5. Tui Nathan (fellow ex-pat Kiwi and talented crafter)
Do pop on over to their wonderful blogs and be inspired by these talented ladies.

Well, that's it from me! Hope you are having a terrific day; thanks for stopping by.
