Chocolate Cupcakes

This page is the result of a new stack of paper and two messy little girls who happen to love chocolate (who doesn't?) Clicking on the photo will make it larger.
When I get a new pack of paper I'm just dying to make something with it and the DCWV Sweet stack has all those yummy papers in it. I remembered that I had a couple of pictures of the girls enjoying some chocolate cupcakes early this summer (I actually took the picture to show Nana how much of a mess they made with her cupcakes!)
Cupcakes were quite a big thing in crafting this year, so I had plenty to work with.
The background paper and the photo mats are from the DCWV Sweet Stack, I punched the bottom of the mats with my MS doily punch. The adorable cupcake was cut on my Cricut with the Home Decor Solutions cartridge. I cut out the the journaling square with my George cartridge and then embossed it with my Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder and layered some vellum on top. I embellished the vellum with some paper floss, a button, and some Studio G stamps.

The title letters were cut on my Cricut with the Mickey Font cartridge in regular and shadow and then layered, then I added glossy accents to make them all thick and shiny (kinda looks like the Thickers stickers)
You can find the Cricut Home Decor cartridge in my store along with other Cricut necessities.

What a cute layout, and it looks like the girls had a blast eating those cupcakes!

I also LOVE this stack and I'm quite sad that I've used almost the whole stack! I've been hanging on to those super small pieces of scraps too..
