Lots of Dots

These cupcakes reminded of some papers that were sitting in my stash for a long time.  I picked up several sheets of those papers because I was using them for a shoebox swap.  There were lots of participants so I had picked up several sheets of the papers and ended up with about 3 of each paper left over.  I think they're perfect for this inspiration photo.

This week the Cupcake Inspirations challenge is sponsored by Anita Be Stampin.
This  image is Busty Betsy.  I purchased this particular stamp because the proceeds for this one are donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.  That cause is near and dear to my heart and should be to anyone who has breasts.   I think that pretty much covers everybody.  In case you didn't notice there's a pink ribbon on my sidebar.  If you click it you'll be forwarded to a site that's part of the fight.  It takes only a couple seconds and a couple clicks to help out.  If you're a frequent visitor to my site and hope you are, you'll read this request over and over.  But I digress...

don't forget the inside
