A new challenge....aren't you curious?

Yay for the weekend, its finally here! To kick start my Saturday, I've joined in on the fun over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! There's a challenge goin' on and an appropriate one at that! MAKE A TAG!

I'm always making tags this time of year. The perfect tag always finishes off any gift! So make sure you play along for your chance to win some KKS rubber!

So, have I told you how much I'm in love with the new Kraftin' Kimmie Alice in Wonderland Stamps by Annie Rodrigue? Well, I do, and have had alot of fun creating funky cards and tags with them. I tried to get a bit creative this time and made a tag featuring 'Alice in Wonderland', and attached it to a cake pop that says 'EAT ME'.... Close up of the cake pop...

Wanna hear a funny story behind this little project? With all the cake-pop makin' goin on in my house lately, I knew when I saw the Alice in Wonderland stamp I was going to make a special one and decorate it with the infamous 'eat me' on it. So, after alot fussing an fiddling with icing and getting it just right, I placed it in the cake stand to let it 'set'. About an hour later, my 9 year old son came down stairs licking his lips, looking to me like he was eating what was left of a 'cake pop'. Knowing I only made the one, I very calmly asked him, 'whatcha eatin?' which he replied, 'that cake pop from upstairs'.....(now, picture me jumping off the couch in slow motion with that low, slowed-down voice yelling....NOOOOOOOOOOO!) I asked him why he decided to eat it without asking he simply replied, 'it said Eat Me'! In retrospect I should have put a sign up saying 'don't eat me'...we all had a good laugh! So the one you see above is my second attempt which turned out better than the first one anyway!
