A gift your guest won't forget...

Told you that I've been creating, just haven't had time to post:-).
Last week over on Platinum Scraps we were asked to create a project for Mother's Day;
but what do you give to the person that has it all??? hmm, give me a minute... I say tile tissue paper coasters, the coasters are super easy to create, yet have that WOW factor that you look for in a gift!!!

who can forget this face, especially when your glass is sitting on it...

Thanks to Shimmy Bean Creations for the awesome tutorial on printing on tissue paper
SplitCoast Stampers  for the how-to tutorial.

Supplies Used:
Modge Podge
4x 4 Tumbled Granite tile
Dollar Tree tissue paper
Storybook- scallop circle
Sentiment is computer generated

FYI- I found that if I allow my ink to dry on the tissue paper before using the sealer I got more of the actual picture color... Also, allow extra time for drying.. You will need to let the sealer completly dry before stacking and wrapping with ribbon ( I learned this the hard way)

Sock Cupcakes: So yummy without the guilt!!!

Life has been sooo busy for our family... We recently returned from a wonderful Disney vacation and a quick weekend trip to DC... top that off with multiple family member birthdays, Mother's Day and end of school year testing... whew, I'm exhausted!!! School is about to end and the kids are getting a tab bit antsy... summer sports are starting and my days are running into my nights ( oh, what a life!!!); but I've managed to find some ME time... time to create and just be free ( if only for a few minutes:-). Okay, now to the good stuff... Every year for Mother's Day, we give all the Mother's in our lives a small token of appreciation, this year thanks to Greenbean I created 15 of the cutest sock cupcakes with matching Jr. Legal Pads!!! I think they turned out perfect and everyone loved them!!!

Supplies Used:
Sweet Treats- Cupcake Holder
Plantin Schoolbook- Circle
Storybook- Scallop circle
