All that Glitters...

Hi there!
Firstly I woke up startled today.  Then realization kicks it; it's Daylight Savings and my clock sprung forward.  After I pulled myself together, I got some retail therapy.  I was happy as can be to find a lot of sales at Michael's.  I found THE perfect item: GLITTER TAPE!!!
This week's challenge over at Dilly Beans is "I love glitter".  I got so into it, I couldn't just make one.  I combined my love of cupcakes and glitter :)

First up is my Very Berry cupcake:
Cherry berry cupcake by Marisa
Lollipop party girl from Dilly Beans
Daisy glitter tape by Recollections
Cupcake brad (lower right corner) by Recollections
Flowers from my stash
Cardstock by Bazzil
Prismacolor markers
and a pinch of LOVE xoxo
Glittered up her hat and heart on her frock
Glittered up some berries on the cupcake
Foam dots for dimension
Second up is the Sugar Frosted Pansies cupcake:
Cupcake also by Marisa
Friday from Dilly Beans
Skullie Glitter tape from Recollections
Cardstock from Bazzil
Pansy stickers by Jolee's Boutique
Prismacolor markers
I sprinkled a purple glitter heart on her frock.
Aren't the skullies adorable?
And of course, foam dots for dimension
Are you as crazy about cupcakes as I am?  This is the closest I've ever come to baking :)  Well, I made quite a mess, but I had so MUCH fun...Thanks for stopping by.  I'm going to go clean up my craft table now.
Peace and love,
Mary xoxo
