My Spin on the Pin {6.22.12}

Summer is in full swing at our house.  I've been trying to keep my kids busy so they won't fight, but some days are better than others! 

With 5 kids home all day, there isn't much time for me to do anything crafty.  But I had to make an exception as soon as I saw THIS PIN.

Here's My Spin on the Pin...


The paper pieced cupcake is my favorite part of the card...

And here's another version...


The paper is from the Project Life Cardstock - Clementine Collection by Becky Higgins.  I am in LOVE with the stuff!

Have a great Friday, and happy Pinning!

A Candy Bouquet in Honor of our Grandpa


My sweet Grandpa passed away on May 30th.  We knew he likely wouldn't survive his stroke, but I don't think you can ever be prepared to lose someone you love. 

He {always} had candy in his suit pockets at church, and a cupboard full of gum at home.  My kids loved going to his house because they knew he'd let them have a piece {or two} of gum.  So in honor of our Grandpa, my sisters and I decided to make a special bouquet for his funeral.
The candy and gum that we used were Grandpa's favorites.  It turned out better than we hoped, and we know he would've loved it!

We miss our Grandpa every single minute of every single day.  Although our hearts were {and still are} broken, we find comfort in our belief that we will see him again someday.

Until then, every time I chew a piece of Grandpa's favorite gums or eat one of his favorite candies,  I'll be thinking of him.  He may be gone, but he'll never be forgotten.
