Anything Goes - with a cup cake!!!

Good morning all

I expect you thought I'd disappeared from the face of the earth!

My crafty mojo is not very well at the moment and I just can't seem to motivate myself - on top of that lifes been pretty busy and inspite of good intentions my craftroom is an absolute tip so any inspiration I might have is short lived at the thoughts of a big tidy up before I start!  It's not that i'm generally a really untidy crafter - I usually tidy up after one thing before I start again but I made a couple of  messy projects a few weeks back that got pushed to the side rather than put away and now I really can't face the aftermath!!

I've got lots of time on my hands at the moment,
 not crafty time but lots of R & R 😎
 - we're back in Florida on holiday so I thought I'd see what I could find in my photographs of  projects I havent shared to join in with the challenge over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges this week

Our lovely Wendy has come back to join us
- and we're so happy to see her back on the team
so she stepped up to host this weeks challenge which is 

Anything Goes

I thought it was a great oportunity to share the princess themed cup cakes I made for my granddaughters birthday party a couple of weeks ago
( you see I have been busy really!!)

Eva was 3 years old on 18th April - how did that happen!!
She asked me to make her a princess cake, because of course like all little girls these days - she is a princess!!  I was all ready to make her a pink and pretty princess castle from a picture i found on pinterest - it looked quite easy to make 9 that's me all over I just look at things and think I can do that! - sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't!! - but in my world I can make anything lol.
Anyway with a bit more searching around I found this lovely "I'm a princess" castle cupcake stand with little princess toppers so all I had to do was make cupcakes - and i have to say it looked fab.  I made an extra little banner with her name on and added a rosette with '3' - really easy and greatly admired by all on the day.  

I then packaged up all the cupcakes into pretty bow tied bags and each little prince and princess at the party got one to take home - job done : )
My daughter was over the moon that she had her own 'cake lady' who turned up at the party, set it all up and sorted out the party treats to take home - that's what Grandmas are for 😃

I really enjoy baking and cake decorating, and knitting and sewing and papercrafts..... Iknow I know, I spread myslf around but I can't resist having a go at  - well anything!!

and here's the birthday girl and her brother Jacob 'helping' on an Easter baking day 

Hope you'll join in with our very easy challenge at Fab'n'Funky this week 
as for me - today I have a date with a mouse : )))))
