Pretty Pink Crepe Paper Cake

A nice Big Roll of Vintage
Pink Crepe paper for
50 cents!

I had to work this morning so
there was no way I could go out
treasure Hunting.
But around 2:00 I stopped in my
Local little Charity Thrift Shop
And walked out with this Beautiful Roll
of Pink Crepe!

So I thought about just how could I jazz it
up to have an actual Post about a Roll of Crepe Paper!
So here it is
A Ballerina Crepe Paper Cake!

These two Chenille Easter Chickie Trees
are my daughters Creations.
You can find them in her Shop
They are just full of detail Darling
Whimsical Trees!

Well we did open Escrow on a Mobile Home today for the Grannies!
Whew! I really never thought that would happen, they were killing me.
And on a Mobile home commission is almost nothing.
Funny just what you have to do to make a
buck in this crazy economy.

And now that I have them (grannies) Happy
I can play in my Studio tonight,
I hope your enjoying the beginning of Spring!
It sure is a beautiful Day here today!
And now I'm off to visit some of your Blogs.

Hugs & Kisses,

You come up with the best ideas. I always used this for my daughter's birthday parties, but I never thought to use it this way. It looks so pretty.

Tracy Suzanne said...

Girl, you even make crepe paper look pretty without making something with it! I can see your daughter has your talent. The trees are so cute!

Have a fun Sunday. Hugs...Tracy :)
