My Grand-daughter's Castle Birthday Cake.

I just wanted to share the cake that I made with my daughter for My grand-daughter's birthday. We celebrated her birthday a few days early so that I could be there. We had a great time making it and I think it turned out pretty good. Hope you enjoy.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday is proud to have
as our sponsor this week.

Kristine is offering a $10.00 gift certificate to the winner. Stop on over at
and join us in the fun!! We would love to see your creations!
The sketch this week is an interesting one. It was a challenge for me. Lets see what kind of a challenge it is for you!
I just got back in town Sunday morning at 2 am...what a long day flying. It was really hard to come home. I had such a good time. My daughter and I spent the first week making the curtains, bumper pads, blankets, receiving blankets, sheets and pillows for the baby's room. It turned out so cute. I wish now I had thought about taking pictures. We got it all set up and it is adorable, ready for the arrival of their son.
That was our number one, we spent the two weeks potty training my grand-daughter. That took both my daughters and my full attention 24-7. Wow, what a strong willed little gal. She knows what she wants and it wasn't being potty trained. But, we prevailed!!! Thank heavens for sticker charts and rewards...
Well, here is my card for the week. Hope you enjoy!!

I really like this image. She seems so confident and sure of herself. And, just like the paper in the background, "I can do anything and I follow my heart, I am brave and I am a friend"... What a great motto.
Have a great week everyone!!!

Hi everyone out there in blogland!
I sure hope you will join us this week for our challenge.
I had so much fon creating these card this week. Our sponsor has some adorable images and I just couldn't resist coloring up the three below.
Our sponsor is: DIGI DOODLE SHOP
They are offering a $10.00 gift card to our luck winner this week. So, come on over and join in the fun.
When I first started working on my card for this week, I was only going to do the
"Sleeping Infant"

My daughter is having a little boy in October and I felt this would be the perfect image to color up.
Then I saw the little boy image and fell in love with it. I can't even begin to tell you how much he looks like my I decided to let you be the judge. Here are some pictures of my grandson. I tried to get the same side profile and was going to have him dressed in overalls, but we didn't get that done in time. So, here he is in his jeans and t-shirt.

So, what do you think?

My son-in-law asked me if I drew the image. When I told him no, he couldn't believe that someone else drew a image that look just like our grandson.
I got such a kick out of this image..and so has everyone else in my family.
Then, Arlana and Judi asked if I would do the "Violet" image too. I love here it is.
I hope you enjoy my creations this week. I had a whole lot of fun doing them.
