Good Day

So today was a good day. I had Steph's parents over to pick up the cake and they absolutely LOVED it!! They thought it was so incredibly clever and unique. So that made me feel good that people appreciate my hard work with creating works of "art" in cake form!! :) I also got a short, but very much appreciated visit, from one of my best friends from MU katie...also known as Cash. I haven't seen her since my wedding shower last May and she stopped in for breakfast on her way to a class she was taking in the area!

Which brings me to my blog name...1/3 Chicklet. In my first year of college, at MU, I became very good friends with a girl ( now one of my best friends) Tracey. She was in one of my classes and we slowly got to know each other better. She then introduced me to her room mate whom she had become very close with Cash. Within days of meeting each other, the three of us were inseperable!! We would have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at any opportunity we could and would hang out and study together. So I gave us the name "The Chicklets" and it stuck! To this day, 6 years after we met, we still label the photo's of us Chicklets. So technically, im 1 of 3 Chicklets....hence the blog name "1/3 Chicklet"!

So today was a very good day. Unfortunately, i'm still hanging out at my parents house and I dont have ANY PAPER CRAFTS!!! And trust me when I tell you that im going crazy! Thankfully i have some projects that i've finished up on my computer and i can share them with you.

This idea is one of Angie's creations at Chic n Scratch and she was honestly the first person to get me into paper crafting! One day, about 2 months ago, i was on youtube searching for ideas using my Cricut and I came across her channel and i LOVED it immediately! It made me want to be a Stampin'Up! demonstrator but right now with a move coming up, i thought it would be smart to wait till im down in florida. But I've taken her creaions using Stampin' Up! products and tried to replicate with a little bit of my style and craft supplies. This is a notebook for my sister. She hates the boring Marble notebooks and she loves "blig or jewels"! She also LOVES pink so this is what i came up with! The 'notes' was created using my Gypsy Font(welded together) and the jewels are from the $1.00 rack at Michaels. Please visit Angie at her blog because she really does make some Fantastic projects!!
Hope ya'll have a great start of the week!!!
