Celebrate Good Times, Come On!!!!

If you've ever been to a wedding, you know that song!  And this week it's our theme at Tilda's Town!  What's wonderful is that it covers so many different events: birthdays, weddings, engagements, etc.  And since I am madly in love with the new With Love Collection, I decided to use one of my favorite images: Up, Up and Away!

I absolutely adore her!  She's so cute!
Now for more inspiration, be sure to check out the fabulous works of my teammates:

Hang in there!!!!

Ready for another open paper challenge at Make it Monday???  I thought so!!! 

This week we have our old friend Bugaboo back! 


I love these images because they can be sophisticated, charming, adorable or hysterical (hello Stella)! 

This week I went with adorable (I am, after all, Simply CUTE, lol!).  Using Lil Kitty on a Limb:

Poor little kitty cat!  Lol!
And now for my POTW...sometimes something is so crisp and fresh and lovely it catches your eye doesn't have a ton of frills or's simply beautiful because, well, it's simple!  I just fell hard for this beautiful card from Paper Panda:
Gorgeous!  I love it!

Thank you so much for popping by!  Don't forget that we're always an OPEN paper challenge!!!  So if you create anything with paper this week, link it up at Make it Monday for a chance to win a great prize from Bugaboo!

Cupcake Time!!!!

Feeling that chill in the air?  We finally are!  Hey, it's winter, so I shouldn't!  This week our inspirational photo is perfect for the season...deliciously frosty (pun intended!)...

And our sponsor is perfection because what goes better on a cold winter's day than cupcakes and coffee?  Nothing I tell you! 
This week our sponsor is Fresh Brewed Designs
Looking for a magical and whimsy store?  Look no further! 
For my creation, I used "Whistlin' Snowflakes" but, because of all the colds going around, it looked more like he was coughing than whistling (and NOT covering his cough that naughty naughty snowflake!) I used him to create a Get Well card for Grace's friend Chloe (felled by strep throat, poor girl!)!
I think he's just adorable! 
Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you feel inspired to whip up something fabulous for us at Cupcake Inspirations this week!
Happy Sunday!

I used the sketch from the Sketch and Stash Challenge:
 but added roses instead of a circle!

Also for MarkerPOP: monochromatic grey (although in my picture the paper looks more brown than grey for some reason!)
Bearly Mine: open

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by!
