I used French Flair (which I SO love and hope that it's in the new catty) with So Saffron for the background. I stamped the young girl and sentiment with Versamark on So Saffron paper and then heat embossed with clear ep. Next I used a watercolor brush and bleach and just went all over the image and highlighted the grass and flowers along the bottom. I left the 'Thinking of You' unbleached just so it would add a little dimension. I distressed the edges and layered onto More Mustard. I think it took about 15 minutes total, gotta love that!!!

I was at the Le Gourmet Chef store a few months ago and found the most bright and wonderful sugar crystals in every color you can imagine. So I've been dying to use them on something and this was PERFECT! Ok, so here's the trick to the Plumeria Flowers....
Cut jumbo marshmallows using damp kitchen scissors into slices. Sprinkle the sitcky insides with colored sugar sprinkles. Arrange on cupcakes in a flower shape! SO simple and SO adorable, don't ya think?? You could even put a candle in the middle if it was for a birthday, or those little pastel colored candies to make a flower center!! Love it!!
Oh and they were a BIG hit....I think they were all gone by 10am. What a great breakfast, eh? ;)
