Cupcake Monday A Challenge and An Award

Happy Monday everyone. I hope your weekend was a good one. I was planning on sharing this with you yesterday but ended up with a killer migraine so I am doing it today instead. Emilia picked the Devils Food Cupcake for us to try this time. I decorated mine to match the DP on the packaging.

This is how Emilia chose to decorate hers.

Since it is finally feeling and looking like fall around here I decided to go with a fall theme. You are getting a preview of new Perfect Presentation template Leigh Ann is coming out with soon. It makes a great cupcake box but could also hold a candle too.

After I made the base of the box from PTI Dark Chocolate Cardstock I added panels from this digital paper pack
I cut a circle in the top then attached a piece of acetate. After that I cut another circle to outline it.

Inside the box is an insert to hold the cupcake or candle in place. You don't have to use it if you don't want to though but as you can see the cupcake fits perfectly. To finish the box off I added an image from the new PTI Everyday Treats Set.
This project also qualifies for Angy's Peeps Challenge #15 which was to make something with a fall theme.
I was also honored to receive a Cherry On Top Award from Rhonda today. Thanks Rhonda!

Now I am suppose to share a photo and tell you something about myself . . .
I share a lot about myself already here on my blog so it was hard to come up with something you have not heard before. I don't read a lot of fiction but my favorite author is Judy Blume. I have read every one of her books more than once and still have all of them. I even got to meet her in person one time and got her autograph too!
The picture I chose to share is what is left of our vegetable garden this year. As you can see these 2 tomato plants are huge but did not produce many tomatoes, we are still getting a few though.

Now I need to pass this award on to 5 other ladies who I think deserve it too.It is hard to pick just 5 people but they are:
Bethie I met her in the PTI forum last year and we have become great friends and we have a lot in common. She is the sweetest person! I also love the things she shares on her blog and how creative she is too.
Carol Lives in Colorado too. I love her work that she shares on her blog especially her shabby vintage style.
Laurel I love all the fun things she shares on her blog and how her stamping is evolving too.
Peggy Sue She is the one that started the Papertrey Peeps group. I love her work and when she shares her faith and words of wisdom on her blog.
Leigh Ann I also met her in the PTI forum. She is the creative genius behind the Prefect Presentation templates but I am also a big fan of her work that she shares on her blog too.
That's it for me for now. I am off to work on a birthday present for my mom now. I hope to be back Friday to share that with you. Until then I hope you have a great week and as always thanks for stopping by.
