Cupcake Wednesday and a Challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone. Hope you are all doing well. Since I last posted It has snowed here a couple of times and is still cold. It is suppose to be back in the 60's tomorrow though. I also spent way to much money on the new Papertrey Release again. I was really hoping that my order would be here this week but I finally got a UPS notification this morning and it won't be here until next week now. I really wish they would send all orders USPS since it is faster. Were the rest of you enabled as much as I was this month?
Today I wanted to start off by sharing the cupcakes Emilia and I baked on Saturday. This time she chose the Choc 'n' Cherry. The topping is fresh whipped cream with chocolate shavings and a cherry on top. Both Rich and Emilia give them 2 thumbs up.

I was trying to figure out what kind of packaging I wanted to go with them then I saw the current Embellish Magazine challenge
This is what I came up with.

I started by cutting down a pink lunch bag. Next I cut 2 6" circles from Raspberry Fizz Polka Dot paper then attached them to the front of the bag and cut the bottoms off. After that I used an oval Coluzzle to cut out the handles. I decorated the front with some Black polka dot ribbon and a doily cut file that I stamped with the cupcake image from the 2008 PTI Anniversary Set.
I put one of the cupcakes inside a clear bag,tied it with a piece of sweet blush satin ribbon then added it to the purse.

As you can see the cupcake fits perfectly inside the bag. You could actually get a few more in there too.

That's it for now. My niece's birthday is Sunday so I have to work on a card for her now. I will be back to share that you all then. In the meantime I hope the rest of your week is a good one and thanks for stopping by.

They look fabulous! Good enough to eat. *wink* I find it so interesting, that with all our nifty gadgets, we still go back to some old tried and true ones like the Coluzzle. Nice job on the gift bag. Really great photo, too!
