i made a Red Velvet cake for some very special ladies last night.

a bit of a dottie theme , it started with the gorgeous spotty cup-cake holder & went from there...

my LSS is closing after 7 delightful years & we celebrated with a bit of a shin-dig, it was a fun evening, shared at the shop with some lovely ladies who have been very loyal & supportive.

The girls - Mel & Chris - that own this shop are simply gorgeous & i nearly can't believe that they won't be there much longer...I don't think they know how much they & their cute little shop will be missed!

i went all out with the cake, just for them as i know that they appreciate the little extra things. The red spots were licorice rolls that i chopped up, such a fancy cake needed a topper & what a more appropriate topper for a paper shop then a cute little banner.

This month the colour is Teal/Aqua & you have to use chipboard.

so here's my LO... nothing to fancy...a mish-mash of pp, prima flowers, silk ribbon, chippie MM clocks & some delish scrapmatts birds - in the raw 'cause they are sooo cute already!!

& a super cute photo of Miss T & A in front of the 'it's a small world' ride/display at Disneyland! It really was a fantastic display, too much to take it almost.
