One more share for the evening. This was a picture frame I picked up at Target's Dollar Spot awhile ago. It was black with the ribbon on it. I simply added Stampin' Up! rub on's that I got from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. This was given to someone at my son's Scout Spaghetti Supper Fundraiser.

A note on the fundraiser. My son (15) is working on his Eagle Scout Project at the current time. His project is a Relay for Life team at our local relay, later this month. At the spaghetti supper, he raised over $250 for his team, by having drawings for items donated from area businesses as well as a silent auction on a big donated item. His goal for this big event is $2000 and he's about half way there with only 2 more working weeks for him to collect. Check out the link at the top of this page. Any donation would be welcomed!

Altered Paint Can B-day Present

I altered the Paint Can for a b-day present for my niece. I had made 2 of these for my older nieces for Christmas and Kelly (9) liked it so much, I made one for her birthday. On the side is snowman confetti for the bath. Inside, I put hair scrunchies, bands, nail polish, nail art, lotions, and bath gel. On the top of the can is a big "K" for Kelly!

This was a gift I made or should I say altered for someone. I got the picture album from Big Lots for $3. I added some of Stampin' Up!'s Designer Series Paper to it, scuffed up the edges a bit, and added a chipboard accent after embossing it with Black Embossing Powder several times to give it a metallic look.

Share of Yummy Cake

Since I haven't shared anything for an OH so long time, thought I'd share a yummy cake recipe with you. I recently took this to a scout spaghetti dinner fundraiser, and not a crumb was left in the pan. It is SO easy!!!

You will need:
  1. 1 Yellow cake mix
  2. 1 can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  3. 1 Can of Pina Colada Mix (Creme de Coco)
  4. Small tub of Cool Whip
  5. 9x13" cake pan

  • Take cake mix, and mix according to the directions on the box.
  • While cake is baking, mix Pina Colada mix and Eagle Brand together.
  • Remove from oven and while still HOT...poke holes with a wooden spoon all over the cake.
  • Pour EB and Pina Colada mix over hot cake, then refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
  • Before serving, spread whipped cream over top of cake.
