My roomie gift, cupcake box answers, and no more training wheels...

How's that for a random group of subjects to post together? *Ü*

This was what my wonderful Leadership roomie Christine gave me. How cute is that little backpack? She filled it with candy, a mini pencil, and a highlighter pen (so I could mark off the million things I wanted in the new Idea Book.) The little pocket in the front had a mini Post It pad inside to mark my favorite pages. LOVE IT! She also gave me this cute flip flap book. Now I need to print out my Leadership photos to put inside.

I have had a few people ask me about the cupcake box that I made for the silent auction at the CTMH Leadership Conference, so I thought I would post some of the answers here. The cupcake on the outside of the box and on the mix box was a template that I created. It is very simple and somewhat primative, but if you would like it, you are welcome to download it. You can click on the photo to make it larger. Then just scale it down to whatever size you would like when you print it out.
As far as the recipes go, I actually got them from this website. I picked six to go with my box, but there are a ton of others that look really yummy. I can't wait to try the chocolate peanut butter recipe! Mmm...Hope that helps a bit.

On a side note, if you haven't watched the Studio J video yet, be sure to check it out. When they showed it at the Conferece, my eyes welled up with tears. As soon as I saw the little girl with her daddy helping her learn to ride her bike, I thought about my son who has been contemplating the idea of taking off his training wheels. Well, tonight was the night. About an hour before it got dark, he asked my husband if he could take off his training wheels. As I snapped my pictures and took some short videos, I couldn't help but think about how I was going to scrapbook them! I CANNOT wait for Studio J to go live so I can use it to scrapbook these precious memories that we created tonight. If you'd like to take a peek at my family website to see some pictures of my little guy riding without his training wheels, feel free to click here. It may not be as exciting to you as it is to me. *Ü*
