Trees and Cupcakes...

Strange title, I know.  Doesn't sound like the two would go together, but they are related...

This week has been a very sad one, as DT member Sarah Anderson’s 3 year old son Henry passed away. Little Henry was unable to overcome a virus that made him ill last week.
Lorie Ames has organized a way to donate for a memorial for Henry. Henry loved his local zoo and visited it almost every day in the summer. As a memorial, trees will be planted there in his honor. Melissa at Pink Cat Studio has created a digital stamp to help raise funds for a tree for Henry. All proceeds from the sale of the digi stamp, minus Paypal costs, will go towards the tree. If you would like to donate towards the tree, please visit this webpage to purchase the digi stamp: Henry Anderson Memorial Fund Digi Stamp

Another way to donate to the memorial is to print out this form and mail in your donation directly: City of Oshkosh Memorial Tree Program.

Please write on the form that the donation is for Sarah Anderson’s son Henry. Once all of the money is collected, a tree and location will be selected. If you have questions about the form please contact Lorie Ames. Lorie will be in contact with Sarah along this memorial journey to ensure that her wishes are followed.
To contact Lorie, please visit her blog at

If you don’t know Sarah and would like to learn more about her, please visit her blog: Sarah Anderson

I appreciate you all taking the time to read, and donate, $3.50 isn't a whole lot of money, you get a SUPER cute image, and help honor the life of a sweet little boy...go donate!

Now -- the cupcakes...well, as you all know, cupcakes are totally the rage these days...I made some for my daughter's party on Saturday...

of course, these paled in comparison to the AWESOME cake my friend Sue made for the girls -- have a look:

Isn't that GREAT?!?!  I totally loved it -- if you want to order one, let me know ;).

But, back to the cupcakes...Melissa came up with some great images for the digi release this week, and my favorite has to be this one of the cute little birdies with a big cupcake.  MMMMMMmmmmmm....

Some little details here - crystal effects on the sprinkles and cherry, and some stickles along the layers of icing. 

Here's the rest of what's being released today, you don't want to miss out...aren't those polar bears just TOO sweet??  And did you notice?  Melissa has decided to release the 'Itty Bitty Christmas' rubber set, as DIGI images for those who love them!  YEAH!

Head on over to the rest of the DT's blogs to see what they've made - it's no doubt, just FABULOUS.

Thanks for stopping by today!
