A Class, A Tag & Cupcakes

Gosh this whole month is just flying by, don't you think?! Between Christmas, birthdays, shopping, baking and making time for and making new traditions, the days are so full I barely notice them passing.

If however, you do have a little extra time or are looking for something to do doing vacation week, there is still a little time to check out my Simple Stamping class at Miss Art's Papercrafting! Or if you have already stamped your heart out, there are a few new classes debuting soon as well. :)

Speaking of holiday baking I started last night with some tasty Salted Caramel Cupcakes. And oh my goodness, the caramel filling almost got the best of me. I was up til 1:30am melting sugar, remelting and starting over trying to get it just right. Maybe it's my competitiveness, but I can't let a challenging task beat me. No way. I must master it! And it was totally worth it because they are delish!!

Top with a caramel, mine came from the store, but these sound really good.

I made 3 dozen to hand out teachers, the bus driver and a few of our neighbors.

To make the tags included with the cupcakes, I created some tags using the Make It Monday #46 - any die into a folder tag. So glad to have a simple challenge like this to distract from what I really need to be doing :) This one is my fav.

Thanks for stopping!

Happy Holidays! x

Great tag, but I confess to being distracted by the cupcakes! Yummy! Happy Christmas!
