Baseball Season, Is It Really Over?

Both of my sons played baseball this year and I think my husband and I enjoyed it more than they did, if that is possible.  For the end of the year parties I wanted to make something special so for my 6 year olds team I coordinated the gifts and made cards (which I forgot to take pictures of) but also made little mini cupcakes that looked like baseballs and I cut out little baseball gloves from Sports Mania and put them on the gloves on a tray, I took the liners off so the kids could just grab one and munch away.  For my older sons team I made sour cream containers with a baseball eraser and Hershey Kisses inside, both were a big hit.  Here are pictures of them both:

My Baby Girl Turned 1!!!!!

I cannot believe it, my youngest, Mady turned 1 last week.  It has been a very busy few weeks between baseball, Memorial Day weekend, school ending for my boys, work and Mady's birthday.  I wanted to make her some decorations but I really ran out of time.  I did make her a little banner and I made her a #1 cake for her on her birthday and then for her little party (with family and a few close friends) I made my first fondant cake.  It turned out ok.  I would definitely try it again.  Here are some pics of the cakes and decorations.  I also made large sour cream containers in the pink and green as the goodie bags for the kids.  My super creative/talented friend Stephannie made the paper cake you can see a glimpse of in one of the pics.  I did not want to put a full picture here, but if you visit her site, you can see her amazing work.  She is very talented.  Her site is

School is over????

Some how the school year flew by and I feel like I missed it.  As the room mom for my 3rd graders class I had a lot to do.  I made his teacher a scrapbook with a picture of each student and a journaling they did in their own handwriting stating their favorite thing about 3rd grade.  I of course forgot to take a picture.  I also made a card (stealing my girlfriend Steph's idea) for the art teacher and the PE teacher who was leaving the school.  Those turned out cute but I was very rushed and am so glad I saw Steph's idea using Create a Critter.  I used Locker Talk for the PE teachers card.  Here are those items:
