Cake Anyone???


Hello Friends :)

I those of you that celebrate had a great Christmas.  I did, except for when my almost 6 year old daughter woke up at 3:30 am and WOULD NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP! - It made for a long day, but it was a good one, none the less.  BOTH of my girls said more than once today "This is the BEST Christmas EVER!" so I think we did alright :).

It's Saturday, and time for a Just Us Girls Challenge.  This week we have a sponsor, and guest designer  Kelleigh Ratzlaff!  I was so excited to get to use one of Kelleigh's templates -- fun, and easy to assemble!


I chose to use the Hexagon Box Template for my project.  When I saw the template on her site -- all I could think of was a wedding cake.  Not sure if it's all of the episodes of "Cake-off" or "Ace of Cakes" that we've been watching or what. lol.

So, I printed out the template, and got to work.  VERY easy to cut out, so that's a bonus too!

I assembled the boxes, and then trimmed them up with some 12 Days of Snowflakes digi paper.


Added some ribbon, and then the confetti flowers.  I tried to make it like those really elegant cakes, and had the flowers crawl up the side of the 'cake' to the middle of the top layer :).

Each flower is adorned with a clear flatback swarovski crystal, for that little bit of elegance, and sparkle.


Be sure to stop by the rest of the team, as they've all made some FABULOUS creations with Kelleigh's templates -- and don't forget to stop by Kelleigh's blog too!!
Have a SUPER day -- I'll be back tomorrow with a Cutesy Cover project!

This brings me back to my cake making days! I think I made a real wedding cake that looked just like this once! This is so pretty with that beautiful blue digi paper! Great winter wedding cake! And I love how the flowers "crawl" up the cake to the top! Great use of the template, Tracey! Fabulous project!
