it's a cupcake thing

Yes, my friends, sometimes it IS a cupcake thing!

Happy Monday! Time for another fantastic challenge at The Pink Elephant!


THE COLOR AQUA, DESIGNER PAPER AND
EMBELLISHMENT OF YOUR CHOICE

Our sponsor this week is Heather Ellis of Digi Stamp Characters. I love love love Heather's images! She was kind enough to allow us to play with some and I was lucky enough to get this little cupcake girl.

Loving a good sketch as I do, I jumped over to see what Karen has for us this week at Sweet Sketch Sunday, and she did not disappoint! The DP is from the Quite Contrary Jack & Jill collection by My Mind's Eye. You can get a sampler pack from Die Cuts R Us. This is definitely one of my new favorite designer paper lines!

One of my favorite embellishments is flowers, especially those hand made for me by friends. This beauty was crocheted by my sweet friend Kim Yu. The greeting is by Stamping Bella.

Why not come play with us this week at The Pink Elephant? Our card challenges are every other week now, with alternating weeks featuring a scrapbook challenge. Be sure to nip over to The Pink Elephant blog to see what the rest of Ella's Girls have created for this challenge using Heather's images.

Before I go, I have to tell you that I had the BEST time on Saturday. I spent the afternoon and evening with Jami Sibley, Rachel Sztonyck and Jen Visser at Jami's house for some crafty fun and then a yummy dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. We highly recommend the Butter Pound Cake with ice cream! LOL It's so fun to meet people in person that you've met in blogland, and it's a bonus when you get along famously and do a lot of laughing and non-stop talking. Thanks, Girls, for a wonderful time! I needed that!

Hiya all people, a bit question for all ya. I presently work being a assistant for a oral surgeon. Even so, I am of a mind to get a career that gets me closer to actual medical job.

Despite the fact that I realise that the job I am at present doing is within the medical field, I wish to be in a hospital coping on the front line with extreme instances.

I'm flawlessly conscious that numerous people observe them as throw-away and their work as currently being the “unglamorous” items, nevertheless it requires the adequate people to do it.

Things i genuinely would like is always to be on the list of cut and thrust of a hospital that is saving day-to-day lives and making them greater - where must I appear at the moment for [url=http://areyouanursingstudent.shutterfly.com/21]cna training[/url]?
