Christina's Birthday Cake

I can't  believe our little princess is already a year old, seems to happen so quickly.
My daughter (Christina's Mom) and I decided to make the cake and smash cake for her celebration, and we both picked out the same picture on Pinterest at different times,
So that was the plan, and it turned out fabulous!



We decided just two cakes would be good,  so let the baking begin !

next step the crumb coat ,

The beautiful platter belonged to Libby My daughters Grandma, 

The Pink Butter Cream Frosting for the Ombre Rosettes,

Now to begin the rosettes, the piping bags are filled and we are using the wilton 1M tip,


We are so pleased with the way they turned out. And would so do it again! So of course I created a Pinterest photo also here it is,

Christina's Birthday was so much fun, and she was so stinking cute in her birthday tutu. In case you were wondering (She was so dainty with the smash cake at first but after awhile she got her smash on, what a mess lol)


Mama Elephant Organic Blooms

Let me say first I Love This Stamp !
I am totally loving florals lately, I'd blame spring but its basically spring or summer every day here.
I'm trying to find my perfect peach combo in copic markers in this image. Again the darker colors are Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens.

Day 30 !!  Yay I'm so excited to have done this event , Thank you Kathy for hosting it !  I colored the free digital image again this time in a softer palette and played with some of the soft spectrum noir sparkle pens to add the dark contrasting colors.  I have been doing this a lot lately and I'm loving it.

Day 28, #thedailymarker30day

Day 28, Came with a very vivid memory of two beautiful little girls and I singing the Teddy Bears picnic song 30 years ago! Can that even be possible lol As I was coloring these cuties I was singing the song and when I realized it, I had that flash back of my girls very little and a long time ago. I love when that happens . These cute bears are from Mama Elephant (Bear Hugs and Cub Cuddles) they are colored with copic markers in the E family Big Bears are : E23,E25,E27 and the baby are : E15,E17, E39. here is the link for the video: Didedi's Crafty Corner  #lovemydaughters

Day 27, of the challenge I used a Stampendous stamp called Nestled Bird,
And this is absolutely one of my favorite stamps! I colored the Stamped image with,  Yes you guessed it...Copic markers using a little dot technique on the bird to give him a ''new feather appearance''

Day 26,  I found this  digital image on a Google search, and colored it with copic markers. I really focused on trying to get the depth right, so that the flowers looked on top of the leaves. Not to bad but still need a bit more work. I will be cutting out the image with the Brother scan and cut so I can pop it up on a card.
