Balancing Act for From Courtney's Closet Challenge


Several months ago I was playing the "From Courtney's Closet" challenge and now I am finally back into the challenge mode! I had lots of fun with this one, as I have all kinds of "cupcake" themed stamping items (don't we all?)! The stamp I used for this is from All Night Media, A Mary Engelbreit design. I changed the dog and tried to make him look "hairy" like my Goldendoodle, the stamp had gift boxes balancing on his nose, but I added a cupcake using my QuicKutz die.

My NEW product I used was Shimmerz Blingz, I used it for the cupcake frosting and the dots on the party hat(Hottie Pink), I also added some "Blingz" to the heart brad, the stripes in the cupcake ........I gotta say I LOVE this stuff, the color I used on the brad and stripes is "Pixie Dust". These are the only 2 colors I have at this point, but will be ordering more for sure! You can visit the challenge and participate to win some blog candy by going here go check it out!
