Creative Craft World Scrap Map Challenge - January 2012

Here is the page I made for this month's Scrap map challenge on the Creative Craft World challenge blog

On my visit to Lawrence, Kansas in November the boys showed me a new shop - The Cupcake Construction Company - so after a late lunch one day we went for cupcakes. You choose your base (vanilla, red velvet or chocolate), then choose a filling (which they add with a syringe!) then your topping (lots to choose from) and finaly your sprinkles and voila you have created your very own cupcake without having to bake a thing :)

The top picture shows the cupcakes in the window (theirs!) and the bottom photo OURS!  Very yummy!

I wanted to use the business card I picked up in the shop so I made this tag

Isn't it gorgeous !!

I got the idea for using glitter and heart confetti (punchies) from Lisa Truesdell aka Gluestick Girl on her blog here  -


  1. Wow! I love that confetti idea, Karen, and I love what you've done with my sketch. Thanks for joining in with us at Creative Craft World.
