{cupcake love} TPV

This week's challenge at The Paper Variety is a sweet one!  The challenge is to use a cupcake on your paper project, be it a card, layout or altered object.  Fun, right?  Because really, who cant resist a cupcake?  :)

I made some magnetic cupcake clothes pin clips for my message board, all the sweeter to hold some nice notes for the boys in my life!  I used a Martha Stewart cupcake punch and finished the tops off with beads and a crocheted flower.  I painted the mini clothes pins and added a magnet to the back.  I finished it off with a bit of blink and a little message flag. 

Here is one of my boys holding the message board I made a few weeks ago

We have an awesome prize up for grabs from The Treasure Box Club:

You have until noon EST Tuesday, February 15 to link your project to the TPV blog.  If you want a chance at having your project featured on the blog have it linked up by Sunday, February 13th. 

Hope to see you there!  Happy creating!
