Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #76

Good afternoon! I had a few minutes on Sunday to play along with Taylor's sketch for this week. As soon as I saw this one, I knew it was going to involve some layering, so out came the dp. I don't usually do a whole lot of layers, so this sketch made me stretch those skills just a little. It's good not to let them get too rusty. :)

However, I admit that layers of lots of prints still scare me a little bit. Therefore, I opted to only you one dp and keep it simple on the eyes. Out came the Washington Apple dp, and I chose a simple pattern that wouldn't overwhelm the card. I had the idea to use a teapot in the circle, so I wanted a pattern that felt a bit daintier.

I popped up the teapot and the sentiment for some dimension, but other than that, I think this is a pretty self-explanatory card.

Packing officially begins today for my vacation up to Bend, Oregon! I leave bright and early Tuesday morning to go visit my best friend, Heather, and my sister, Sharon, whom are both currently living in Bend. Love it when I can kill two birds with one stone! We already have some grand plans for dinners out and some tubing down the Deschutes river. Should be fun! I always have lots of time to sit and read on my trips up there as well, which is always welcome. I am a certifiable bookaholic. My stack of "books to read" is getting taller and taller, so this will be the perfect opportunity to widdle it down a little.

Have a wonderful rest of your Sunday! Thanks for stopping by.
