Birthday Scrap Relay Competition

Hiya Everyone! Hope this finds you well, and I am hoping this lovely spring like winter weather breaks soon (no offence to sunshine and all that but my garden needs a drink!!!)
Today I have a LO to share that I have literally just finished (the kindyglitz is still drying LOL) as part of a birthday scrap relay competition being run at My 2 Angels. Everyone who put in to enter have been split into teams to scrap something on different days, with a different main birthday embellie required. We get our criteria the night before....my day is Tuesday (today) and my criteria was "cupcakes" on the page somewhere.... so I took the whole cupcake criteria and ran with it...Here is Birthday Cupcakes...

I decided to scrap the picture of Jessica's cupcake stack I made for her birthday. The title is one half a My 2 Angels rhinestone happy birthday, with cupcakes in Adorn it little letters. The lacy look around the edge of the great SEI Cake walk papers was done with a Martha Stewart deep edge punch.

I included my easy peasy basic cupcake recipe as journalling, done on a piece of coredinations cardstock that has been embossed with a Timmy folder.  (Tim Holtz Notebook Texture Fades embossing folder - given to me by the lovely Wendy for my birthday *mwah*. Wendy knows I have much love for Timmy stuff) At the top of the recipe, I have used 2 gorgeous My 2 Angels charms - a spoon and handmade hand - just coz they were so cute I couldn't resist. The cupcakes were cut from a piece of SEI Make a Wish paper, tickled with kindyglitz and popped behind the recipe with a folded wee little doily (more blog candy from the lovely Deb).
The rhinestone swirl was done by firstly stamping an Autumn Leaves double scroll stamp onto the cardstock backing with versamark ink. (which is REALLY hard to see on white but you can just glimpse it) Next I dotted along the stamped image with PVA glue (using a toothpick) and placed some loose clear rhinestones along the image. Et Voila! Your very own handmade glittery scroll image. I added more handcut cupcakes and some gorgeous My 2 Angels mulberry flowers (which did not escape the kindyglitz treatment either!!)

Materials Used:
Title: Rhinestone Happy Birthday, Carolees Creations Adorn It lettering.
