Superbowl Sports Mania Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Sports Mania Blog Hop! If you are here for the Hop, you're in the right place. If you are just swinging by, join in on the fun by visiting Kathryn's Blog to start at the beginning. This is going to be a great event, so be sure to stop by everyone's site to enjoy the amazing new projects they have put together for you before taking off to watch the game.

My Project
I wanted something "manly" - no ribbons, no glitter, just football - but when I came up with the design, I realized I didn't have the 'field' paper I wanted. So, I created one myself by cutting strips of green paper and adhering it to white paper with a gap in between. Here's how it turned out...


As you know, I recently took a cake decorating class and when everyone was asked to bring something to the party, I immediately volunteered some cupcakes - it's good practice, so technically, I was being selfish :). Here's my yummy cupcake (red velvet with cream cheese filling)...

Times 24 (did I mention how hard it was to not eat even ONE?! lol)

Hope you enjoyed my projects and thank you for stopping by!

  31. I love how you made the field. Very creative. I have not dare showed my husband your cupcakes. He would insist I try and make some. I am gonna try and leave the cake decorating to my mom - as least for a little while longer, unless I give in and get the cricut cake. :)
