Scrapin Away

I am NOT a morning person. If I had my way, I really wouldn't get up before 10 am and wouldn't go to bed before midnight... but being a mom to 3 busy kiddos means this is not a possibility. I am always trying to turn myself into a morning person, so I've been motivating myself with some scrapbook time. I get up early have a little coffee and some quiet time then into the craft room. I get a half hour or so to scrapbook before it's time to get the kids up for school. I'm loving it! (not as much as I would love to sleep till 10 but I'm working on it!)

So here the am perks: finished layouts yeah!

I used some of my journaling cards from the Department Store set and the Take Note set (soon to be listed in my shop).

On this layout I used journaling cards from the Pretty as a Princess and the Springtime in Paris sets.

If you are a morning person, I'd love to know how you do it! ;)

Easy Bunny Pops

I have to admit I have a new addiction. Recently some friends and I got together to make some goodies to pass out to the kids at church on Easter Sunday. We made cake pops. Then my pal Jami and I got together to make a few more... then we started experimenting and well now I'm putting anything I can find on a lollipop stick and dipping it into pretty candy melts. ;) Anyway...

I saw some marshmallow bunny pops somewhere and decided to make my own version. These turned out pretty cute and were so easy to make.

What you need:
a bag of the big white marshmallows
a bag or two of pretty colored candy melts
some lollipop sticks
heart shaped sprinkles
powdered sugar
little treat bags
a kitchen scissors

Then away you go! Heat up your candy melts according to the directions on package. In a small bowl stir together a little cornstarch and powdered sugar. Now to make the ears. Take a marshmallow and cut ears using the kitchen scissors. I held the marshmallow upright and made vertical cuts. Some parts of the ears will be sticky so toss them in the cornstarch mixture.

Next take another marshmallow and insert a lollipop stick. Dip the end of the marshmallow (about 1/3 of the way down) in the candy melts. Add a sprinkle nose. Let the candy coat set up for just a minute, but not all the way, then dip the ends of the ears and attach em to his head. When the candy melt has hardened, bag up your pop and tie it with a cute ribbon. That's it!
