I think this is Jack Skeleton and Sally's wedding cake.  Weren't they the perfect couple.  A match made in Halloweentown.  Where ever this cake came from it's a great inspirational piece for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge #131.  This week we're being sponsored by Kenny K and there will be 3 prizes awarded so go your crayons sharpened up. 

This week there's a second inspiration cake.  So if you're not a fan of Halloween you can use the "Sweet 16" cake for your inspiration.  So like I said before - go get those crayons ready.


I happen to be a big fan of Halloween so you know which cake I picked.  

This week has been incredibly busy and stressful for me.  My daughter had to have unanticipated surgery on Tuesday to remove a pilonial cyst and just a couple days earlier we adopted a puppy (our kitty was not too happy).   So I haven't been paying as much attention to blogging as I normally would.  Tomorrow we go back to the surgeon to find out if she can return to school.  Keep your fingers crossed.

there's a tiny skull and crossbones charm hanging off the
linen thread whick is tied to the orange ribbon.  if you
click on the photo to enlarge it you might be able to see it

Here's the deets:
stamp - Kenny K "Devastatia"
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Only Orange"and "Brilliant Blue" cs, "Ghostly Greetings" dsp
miscellaneous - copics; gelly roll glaze pen; Martha Stewart graveyard and ghoul border punches; Stampin' Up linen thread; pleated ribbon; wide striped ribbon; green findings safety pin; orange ribbon; EK success flower bling; Queen and Co rhinestones; sewing machine; Nellies multi frame die

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll come back again.  I also hope that you'll play along with us at Cupcake Inspirations.  We love to see what you create.

For those of you who have been waiting to see a photo of our new fur baby here's a pic of his adorable face.

His name is Bill Bailey.  He came to us from Underdog which is a rescue group here in Bradenton.  If you're looking to get a pet I encourage you to look into a rescue dog, I found Underdog by doing a google search for rescue dogs in my area.  There are so many deserving animals in need of a home.  Can you believe that Bill was slated for execution?  I am so glad that Underdog rescued him and a wonderful couple were willing to give him a home till he was ready to be adopted.

It took a week but Shamus was finally willing to make friends with Bill.
