Hey Everyone... hope you had a wonderful New Years Eve and Day....................and are off to a great start in 2009!
Today is Taylors Challenge #49.....and it's a Special day over on Taylors Blog.. as it's release day for new Stamp and Sweet Impression. You can check it all out here. CUTE!!!!

Okay... here's my spin on Taylors Sketch

Taylors Sketcha few close ups
I wish the lighting was better, sorry.
And here are the supplies I used.

This weeks cupcake sampler is Carolina Buchting at Carolinas Creative Pad
be sure to pop over and check out what she created with Taylors Sketch and also the creations of the rest of the talented Cupcake crew.

I had to laugh when I was was getting ready to unload a couple of photos from yesterday.. why?
Well because I had no photos of people. lol I knew I hadn't taken many photos at all.. and that's okay... I was just caught up in enjoying the day. But my camera is always close enough to grab.. it's just that I seemed to not get any people shots.
But food.. yep. I can tell you one thing.... it's a good thing the holidays are over.. if only for the fact.. the endless food.. has got to stop! eeek

The guys watched the game .. and everyone was thrilled... ahhhhhh... a win for the Huskers!
Celebrated Nebraskas win.. and the new year with a little Asti.

Everyone stuck around for dinner.. and even though.. it was a paper plate meal... it was great to sit and chat around the table.
Now today , it's back to reality.... work.. and a salad!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Go Huskers!!!!! What a good game that was! Your card is adorable! At first I thought you had used the cuttlebug embossing plates they must have some that resemble those stickers. Very cute!

Even your paper plate setting looks great! My favorite foods were together on one plate, brownies and rice crispie treats. I tried to make the but they never taste as good as......anyone else's~

Elaine said...

These pictures tell all...a thoughtful hostess and a fun time! :)

The counter and spread look divine...wish I were there to partake! lol

Go Huskers!

I do the cranberries and candles every year at the holidays also. Take real snow and add to it right before your party. A friend gave me that tip a few years ago and it is beautiful.

Looks like a GREAT party!
