Its time for CAKE!


I am sorry I have been absent for a bit, besides celebrating the holiday 3 day weekend- I have been accident prone. To those that know me, I can be a klutz... but this week its been BAD!  Nothing too serious! .. but I am dangerous!  I was cutting up canteloupe on Tuesday night, May 24, and sliced my thumb... TO ME, I wanted to put a bandaid on it and call it a night- but to the other half (who inspected it well) it was a car ride to the ER, a tetanus shot and two stitches later going to be ok.... I hate it when hes right! {{wink wink}} Its on a part of your thumb in which holds everything - it sits on the desktop when you are using a mouse, its just a bad bad spot. Plus I use this hand with scissors... UGH!!!!

This was  Wednesday morning, I removed the stitches by Monday May 30 myself, it was just annoying!

In the meantime, I have to get some graduations gifts completed. I wanted to make something different for the boys, and I knew they would love this - since they really could east it!

I only hot glued the two styrofoam circles together, after I put cardstock on them. Everything else has medium sticky dots on them, so you can eat the chocolate.

I am convinced the I may have to stick these numbers up - some little strips of cardboard, for a better appearance. With only really only having limited use of the right hand - I figured I would try this first, then pop them up! {{when my thumb was up to it!}}

Top view - and I really had a fun time making this! I did imagine other candies that you could use for this project too!

Thank you for stopping by!

Hug the ones you love!

Have a great day!

Yikes, that looks like it hurts bad!!! Hope it heals quickly and next time you are cutting fruit, be CAREFUL!!! Maybe some of those chainlinked gloves they wear with birds so the knife doesn't cut you (he he).

Great graduation creation!!! Love how different it is!
