Craft Your Days Away - mmmmmm Cupcake

I am such a bad bad blogger at the moment I have neglected this blog due to being a tad busy with family life, which I am sure lots of you will understand.  I shall be back on top blogging form in September when chaos is over and normality returns!

This fortnight over at CRAFT YOUR DAYS AWAY we have a CUPCAKE theme.........yummy!  As you all know we are a multi craft challenge so you can make what ever you please as long as it follows the theme.  So with this in mind I had a quiet moment the other day and sat and had a go at making some sewn items with a cupcake theme.  
Here is what I came up with.

The cupcake keyring is from a tutorial which I cant find now, there is a printable sheet for you to use as a template HA HA a wonderful blogger has found the template if you search for lisapay(dot)com  you can also follow the tute on utube Thanks so much 73mw you are a star You have to check out her blog its fab!!   (I made my own template as my printer is out of action at present).  The little cupcake pin cushion is a very simple make.

This fortnight we are sponsored by Simon says Stamp 

Our challenges run fortnightly so you have plenty of time to get involved!

Thanks for popping by
