Happy Friday the 13th! 



Yes, I am aware of what day today is because I have a 7 year old who thinks it's awesome :) Makes me laugh so hard because I thought it was so cool when I was little too! I remember walking to school looking for black cats or SOMETHING that would make the day significant! Oh to be a kid again! I hope none of you have any kind of misfortune today...and that includes no scary men in masks with a hockey stick ;)


I think most of you have seen this beautiful stack of ours, Chateau Lavender, which has been out for a few months. I have seen many pages, cards and albums using the gorgeous paper. But I was not prepared to see these!


These are COOKIES! I cant believe it! Maybe because I am good with making things with paper but decorating cakes and cookies is for sure not one of my talents. Amy over at Arty McGoo is a big DCWV paper fan but had not seen the Chateau Lavender Stack yet. When I showed her, of course she loved it. 















 
I love seeing all of the talents that you hold! I think part of keeping our own creativity alive is seeing all of the things that people around us can do. That's probably why I love Pinterest so much! I love the creative love that we all share, I really do!

Thank you, Amy, for letting me share your talent with my blogging friends! I just don't think I could eat one of those works of art, it would be a sin!

Have a fabulous weekend!!
