You're my Cupycake...

On the road trip down to Anaheim for CHA a few weeks ago, a funny thing happened....actually a LOT of funny things happened but I'm only going to highlight one at the moment. There were three of us on this little road adventure so we stocked up on snacks, gossip and music. When one got old we'd just flip to the next form of entertainment. We started with gossip, hit the snacks about an hour in and then as we were flying down the highway it was time for the tunes. The driver, aka Kate, has a fabulous man at home who kindly filled her iPhone with TONS of music so we would have plenty to rock out to. "Old McDonald?? *next* Bingo?!? *next* Itsy Bitsy SPIDER?!?!?! WHAT THE...????? **Insert various adjectives here** Oh, I guess I should have prefaced this with the fact that they have 4 children. He loaded the KIDS car tunes...WHOOPS! So thus, we were groovin to some mad Barney sing-a-longs on our road trip...ROCK ON!!!
So there was a point to that tale, there was one song on there that was so flippin cute. It was sung by a little girl, maybe 3 or 4 and she fumbled all over the words while singing it, which of course made it even cuter. "You're my cupycake-uddlebear-sweetie-eetie-umkin..." So now, whenever we see a "cupycake" we sing the tune and reminisce.

I fell in love with this set when I saw it on Taylors blog. I loved the look of the three cupycakes all together so I used her card for inspiration. I used SU Petals & Paisleys retired DP along with Rose Red & Pretty in Pink cardstock. The ink colors used were Rose Red, Pretty in Pink & Certainly Celery. I used Joanne's little slot/ribbon/knot trick to add a final touch. Hope you likes!
