Sweet Success!

Can’t you just taste them?
Oooooh la la. These would be what I call a “Sweet” success. I’ve never before made cinnamon rolls, but in my ever increasing attempt to keep busy this week, I thought I’d give PW’s cinnamon rolls a shot. Oh, heaven! They turned out PERFECT! And I take no credit whatsoever – just followed her instructions and YUMMO. I actually halved the recipe, and instead of her maple coffee glaze, I made a cream cheese glaze to pour over top.

Now, I have not forgotten my quest to get into shape and lose some excess poundage, so I only had one, saved enough for the kids to each have one, then packaged up 3 plates of these babies to hand deliver to a few of our neighbors. The kids and I took a walk down the block and chose 3 houses to deliver them to. They loved it. It was a great object lesson on service (and sacrifice! Ha!). Then we came back home to paint some plant pots for a fun activity. Good times.

And oh, joy – to wake up this morning to this:
What a better excuse for taking a ‘day off’ and scrapbooking than a yucky snow day? So, that’s what I did!

I used the little photo collage I made a while back and made quick work of this little layout. I love it. The Chandelier was cut out on my silhouette machine – so cute, and I stuck some bling on it to jazz it up a bit. I took a page out of Talia’s book and tied some tulle on top as a finishing touch.
This page was lifted from one of Maggie Holmes, who lifted it from someone else. I had fun playing with buttons, ribbon, and jewels to make this look. Now I’m working on the second page in the spread, showcasing TJ’s birthday party. So fun.
