I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

A Card and a Cake

I don't usually do Inspiration challenges because I get too overwhelmed. My ADD kicks in and my brain goes awry. :) However this Inspiration challenge over at Simply Scrapping Crafts was right up my alley. It was so busy that I could relate to the chaos. Of course most people pick one thing to be inspired by I kinda took it pretty literally and did the whole thing. What do you think? I found a piece of designer paper from American Crafts that reminded me of the frames so then I stamped inside the frames, easy peasy.
Now on to my Upside Down Pineapple Cake. I have to say I learned two things yesterday. One, a iron skillet is very heavy especially when it is full of batter and needs to be flipped over. Enough said. Second, I learned how to self clean my oven, again enough said. The cake actually came out great and everyone agreed it was delicious. Thanks for stopping by.
