2 Year Anniversary

Once in a while in the middle of an ordinary life, LOVE gives you a fairy tale! Yesterday was my 2 year anniversary and I am so thankful for my sweet, sweet husband.

Right before heading to work I received these beauties:

At work, I received another bouquet of flowers with a note that said : " 2 Flower arrangements for 2 years of marriage". It was the sweetest thing.

Just had to share these with ya'll! ♥

Tricycle Diaper Cake

If your looking for my Welch Creations challenge #6 click here!

The baby shower I'm hosting is today and I was able to finish the diaper cake! I'm still trying to get caught up on my sleep though and after today I think I will be able to!

I started out by making the tires. Start with 6 #1 diapers and then keep adding until your tire is full.
After I had done these, I went back and ended up putting in some lugnuts ( not shown in picture) by using 5 rolled diapers.

Here's the finished cake! I think it turned out pretty good for my first go at this! For my handle bars I just used receiving blankets and put a wire hanger in the middle of it to hold it sturdy.

Hope ya'll enjoy!

Carrot Easter Basket

It's been a busy week so far and the hubby went back to the rig yesterday. I went over to my friend Patsy's house yesterday to get a little crafting done!

We made these cute little Carrot Easter Baskets, which we found on splitcoast stampers and they are designed by Brooke Stockman. If you haven't been to splitcoast stampers, be sure to check them out. They have such wonderful designs!

The candy used in these baskets are Lindt's Chocolate Carrots, which are so yummy!

My next challenge won't be until the 15th of this month, I want to try and get back on a good set schedule. Hope everyone enjoys and have a great Thursday!
