Me, Myself and I

Wow, how did Friday come around so quick again????
Did someone hit the fast forward button??

I have one last page to show from my Cocoa Daisy crop last weekend. I saved my favourite 'til last.
Denise had the wicked idea to stain ribbons etc in coffee, let dry and use.
You can see the challenge here.

And here's what I made.
(click on pic)

Here are the bits that I had soaking in coffee.

I just love this technique and the room ends up smelling so good too.
I also used the coffee cup stamp that I designed for Cocoa Daisy.
The other part of this challenge was to scrap about the person you love having coffee with the most.
That for me was actually 'me'.
Right at that moment when I was creating this I was being driven crazy by family and I just wanted a couple of hours to myself. You know that feeling???

If you haven't seen Denise's work before, go see here. She's one of my favourite Artist's. So so talented this lady.

And here are some of the Red Velvet Cupcakes that I baked yesterday. They are so scrummy. And my new cake stand that I found yesterday : )

3 hours left to work now and I need to make my Mum a canvas and a birthday card.
I need to hit that rewind button. I need more hours.
