"Baby Cakes" Toppers and a Package from Lulu!

Today I finished two "Baby" Wedding Cake Toppers. I had big fun making these guys! They will work on either the top of a wedding cake, or with cupcakes. These are generic,,,not custom orders. They may end up in Art and Soul Gallery,  or at an event a friend of mine is participating in. I just hadn't made anything wedding related for a while and the "creative fairies" told me it was time.

I had this "Garden Thingy" going on and this one is certainly the BRIGHTEST one I've ever done! I constructed a little "gazebo" for the background, complete with a bird fountain.
The text is a bit hard to read, but says, "Happily Ever After."

The second one is a bit more subdued, and like many as of late, I love working with these aquas, beiges and
bits of brown. I found a big old song book from the 50's in my basement and used part of a "Spring" song on this one.

When I started working on the first one (top piece) I was trying to decide how to fashion a birdbath for my "gazebo" when all of a sudden a thought came to me. I cut a spun cotton ball in half with the little hole top center. Then I used a vintage plastic candle holder (like you'd use on a cake or cupcake) and hot glued that into the cotton base. Then added a couple of really tiny doves and glittered the daylights out of it!

I had so much fun making the first "birdbath" that i felt compelled to make another for this one.
TP roll Gazebo's and candle holder Birdbaths, Fun projects!

Tomorrow I'm constructing the Eiffel Tower out of Toothpics!
(just kidding)

I was just getting ready to sent this post to that Great Blog Publisher in the Netherworld, when my son Andrew announced I have a package,,,,,,,,From Lulu!  Ooooooooh!

Oh my Stars! The box weighed a ton! And, there is a box within the box! "Things to have Fun With!"
Lulu told me she was sending me some "Wellies" aka Garden boots, and well, they are just too cute! I think I'll just post this tease and show you what's in the box(es) tomorrow! Ackkkkkkkkk!

Have a good evening! Stay posted, I'm almost at 100 posts, and I promise a fun Giveaway!
