I have always wanted to make the scrapbook paper letters I have seen on other blogs and finally I made some.
Items needed:

Wooden Letters (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)
Mod Podge
Foam brush
Acrylic Paint
Scrap Book papers (I bought mine at Hobby Lobby)

1. Trace the letters onto the scrap book paper and cut out.
2. Paint the back and sides of the letters.(Do not paint the top of the letter as you will be putting the scrapbook paper with Mod Podge.)Let them dry before going to the next step.
3. Pour some of the Mod Podge on a paper plate and brush onto the top of the letter you are working with and place the cut out scrapbook paper on top. Make sure you smooth out the air bubbles. Brush some more of the Mod Podge on top of the paper to seal it. Continue this step with each letter. Let dry.

Hope you will give this a try. I know I will be making some more. This was so much fun.
Hugs :)

Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting another great Pink Saturday!. Please visit her blog to see all who are participating.

Sorry for being soooo late! I would like to introduce you to Sophia Loren aka Ms. Sophie. She is some diva. I had one heck of a time trying to get her to pose. She just did not want to participate in this weeks Pink Saturday. I told her she just had to smile and show off her beautiful pink collar with a pink bell on it. She just foo fooed and said what...ever!

Finally, she gave in and said quick! Snap at it and let's get this over with.

Then she just sighed....and said " Is this what all the fuss is about?

Then she just turned her back and said "This is the end"

Hope everyone enjoyed their Pink Saturday!

Hugs :)

I Love Birthday Cake!!!

I just love to eat birthday cake! Especially when its Big Red Cake! I'm also glad my sister quit counting her birthdays at 22years. That means I can stop at 42 years. You little sister and I have the same birthday...July 5th....and I'm 20 years older than she is. My Dad, Mom, sister and Aunt came over this weekend to celebrate our birthday. We had so much fun. We drank Pina Coladas and Appletinis and watched several movies.
This is my youngest son Mark and our middle son David with myself and DH (Our oldest son could not be here). I guess we were staring at the other photographer as we sure weren't looking into this camera...and looks like our sons thought they would get their heads chopped off by the way they are bending down. My Mom must have been taking the picture, she usually cuts the tops of our heads.LOL

Here I am with my sister, my Mom and Aunt. I guess I was the only one looking at the correct camera. I always have so much fun when they come over as we try to go to all the thrift stores we can find.

The Big Red Cake is a real simple recipe:
1 box white cake mix. Bake as per directions.
1 16 oz. frozen strawberries at room temperature
1 small box strawberry jello
1 Big Red soda can or strawberry soda
1 large tub of cool whip
Mix strawberries with jello and Big red. Stir until well blended. With wooden spoon handle poke holes in cake. Pour strawberry mixture on top of cake. Frost with cool whip. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.
(As this was the Fourth of July Weekend we decorated the cake to resemble a flag. We sprinkled with fresh blueberries to be the stars and sliced fresh strawberries to be the stripes on the flag).
Hugs :)
