cake & lily bee

I can make my cake ... just can't eat it .... while I was at the bookstore the other day, I was browsing through some magazines and the cover of the May/June PaperCrafts magazine really caught my eye. there was this cute little paper birthday cake made in bright & happy spring colours .. you know, lots of yellows & greens & pinks & turquoise. So of course off to the dollar store i got to pick up some cute little round boxes ... I went home and whipped up my own version ... using pinks and whites and slightly more girly accents. These are such a cute idea for gift giving ... imagine giving a 3 layer birthday present to someone, or having this at a bridal shower or graduation or just any kind of an occasion where you get to celebrate with cake and prezzies!!! I will be dragging it off tommorrow to the POTP store so if you want to see it IRL it will be there for a couple of weeks. And if you want to make your own, send me an email and i will help you with directions. My cake was made with Bazzill Swiss Dots in Salt, and MLYB ~ Baby Safari ~ Girl pattern papers.



Sandra got in some Lily Bee papers recently. This is a brand new company and the papers are from their first release. Check them out at the store or on their site. They are totally cute, nicely weighted and best of all ... double sided.

Love that 3-tiered cake. If I can manage to buy my sister's wedding gifts to fit in three round boxes, I'm totally doing this for her wedding gift. Love it!!

I picked up all that Lily Bee stuff last time I was in the store (gulp) and can't wait to start cutting it up.
