MFT Challenges and Cake Boss

Today was my day to catch up on challenges after a busy weeks of fun. Friday we spent our last official day at the beach for the summer. The weather was perfect and the water was wonderful. The kids loved boogie boarding and digging in the sand. We did not leave the beach until almost 6pm. Saturday we had a swim party. Sunday we got to relax a bit. Yesterday we got up early and took a drive up to Carlo's Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey. Yep that's right, the home of Cake Boss. The pastries were totally yummy and we even got to see Buddy. This is a picture I took of him across the counter from me. He even shook my son's hand, which Jaymes thought was totally cool.

Today I got to complete the Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from last Wednesday, as well as the September Guest Designer Challenge from MFT.

First up is the Wednesday Stamp Club challenge. This week's theme was Floral Fantasy. I broke out a bunch of my Die-namics and got to work. I used the Die-namics tree, flowers, and sun. The stamp is from the "Clearly Sentimental about Birthdays" set.

Next up is this month's MFT Guest Designer Challenge. This month's challenge was to "Get Sentimental." I used one of the sentiments from the "Framed Greetings" set and a ton of buttons. The flowers and leaves are from Prima.

Well that's it for today. See you again soon!
