Pause, Dream & Enjoy-Cupcakes or Baby.

It is another great challenge over at Pause, Dream and Enjoy. I am having so much fun creating projects that our lovely DT coordinator, Janis, comes up with.  This week our  Theme is: Baby Cakes (use cupcakes or baby project).

We are sponsored EACH WEEK the month of AUGUST by CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS with a $5 Gift Certificate to their store to a weekly winner.

For those doing the mini-album, our question is: What's Your Nickname?

Though I am not doing the mini-album, I figure it would be nice to share my nickname story.  My children have taken to calling me Mommarella.  This originated from my oldest who was about 4-5 at the time (and a big Cinderella lover then) noticed me mopping the floors and said, "Momma, you are like Cinderella..always doing chores in your house clothes (which are unsightly sweat pants and  alarge t-shirt with bleach stains on it LOL)...I think we should call you Mommarella". Now what was my witty response???? "Well honey, Someday my Prince will come!".

So now the nickname has stuck and I plan to get a T-shirt done with my witty response on it..much to my hubby annoyance.
Anyway, back to the challenge.

This is the only La La Land stamp I own and it an adorable image called Cupcake Marci.  I decided to do paper piecing on the outfit and use some bright summery colors that I have had stacking up in my scrap pile.  The tag is again from My Craft spot Teeny Tags.  Colored it with my Spectrum Noirs except for my Copics on the skin. 

Happy Crafting to all my fellow "Mommarellas" out there! Can not wait to see your Cupcake or Baby Theme Projects!
