Yesterday, for the first time in several weeks, my friend Mickey and I had a whole day and into the night to spend together scrapbooking. Of course when we do that, we take several breaks - lunch, snack, dinner, shopping, etc. - but mostly we work on our scrapbooking. I worked diligently for hours on my layouts and completed three. As Lloyd would say, Mickey won 7-3. But it isn't a competition. I'm a slow scrapper and Mickey is faster. I think I might have ADD ;)
Here's what I accomplished yesterday.

another 'fun' on it doesn't it. I'll go take care of that shortly.

For our mid-afternoon break Mickey and I went to a cupcake shop we had never been to before. Cupcakes are very popular here and it seems that a lot of cupcake shops have popped up in the past few years. This new one, called Fuss (as in come see what all the fuss is about) was home to the most delicious cupcakes we had tried yet. They were just about all gone before I thought to take a picture of them...these are the ones that we took home.
|The green one is called The Full Monty and is chocolate with mint icing.|
The yellow one is called Lemon Aid - vanilla cake with lemon icing.
Aren't my little 1970s owls cute. Daughter Jenny gave them to
me to add to my resurrected owl collection.

chives from Emily's garden, complete with the sweetest smelling
blossom ever. The chives were delicious chopped up in a
I think it's a pretty safe bet that Mickey and I will be visiting Fuss again. I had a chocolate Coconut Fuss cupcake with cream cheese icing and fresh coconut, as well as a caramel cake one with pear buttercream icing - delicious. Mickey had Scarlette O'Hara (red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and the decadent Bliss (chocolate cake/chocolate icing/chocolate ganache). We won't stop until we've tried JungleFever, Cloud 9, Purple Haze, Raz and the City, The Diva, The Don, and the rest of their treasures. It might take us awhile, but we'll do it. More incentive for us to have weekly scrapbooking days.
Now, go on out and get yourself a sinful treat. Have a lovely weekend.
