Fancy New Book! and some baking....

Hi Everyone...

I was out with my Girlfriends lastnight and on our shopping trip I found a book one of my blog friends worked on...Andi Butler....

This book is the cutest thing ever...the illustrations are wonderful and I love making these mini couture dresses....

The book comes with all kinds of wonderful supplies and even mini hangers....

I had some fun this morning creating my first mini dress....here is my pink wonder...hope you enjoy it! and I can't wait to make more....

This book is such an inspiration to me....I have so many ideas going through my mind....great work Andi!


I also baked up some yummy cupcakes...these are dark chocolate cake with a creamy milk chocolate frosting and ganache on top....cupcakes and dresses and jewelry...so much fun these days....






I used some of this stuff on each cake too...the flavour is amazing....
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Tonight we are having a bon fire!
Cheers,
Diana

Um, I like to take off hot pink dresses after a night of dancing.

Um, don't pay any attention to me.

Storming here again, spring is having so much trouble getting here this year. But the water gives life and I'm thankful for that.

What a beautiful pink dress! Andi is such a wonderful artist (and so are you!)...this looks like so much fun.

Mmmmm.....save me a cupcake! I can just picture Cole with a face full of ganache!

Hope the bonfire was fun. I did that the other night with a girlfriend...cocktails, a bonfire, kids roasting marshmallows and our dogs enjoying their 'playdate'.

Cheers!
