Sugar Overload Anyone

Why oh why does sugar have to be so sweet...so delicious, so yummy.  Addiction is a good word to sum up my feelings toward it.  And Halloween is not helping.  Those candy companies are super smart...they make teeny tiny Snickers and Milky Ways...so little that you don't feel bad having one.  Which quickly turns into two and downhill you go! 

I try to keep all things like that out of my house because I don't have willpower, but between birthday parties and Halloween, I am a junkie!

Speaking of birthday parties, I got some great shots of both my party and Nathan's.  I don't typically scrap birthdays, but this year, I am going to do that!  Maybe it is the fact that many were taken outside with natural light.  Maybe because Nathan had his first "friend" party.  Whatever the reason, I am enjoying scrapping those special days.

Here is the first!  I caught this shot of Nathan in his homemade cape (I used my Elmer's Exacto knife and fabric glue), looking all superheroish.  Yet he is holding a cupcake.  Hence the title:

I used the triangular shapes from a sheet of patterned paper by Teresa Collins to make this star...then carried the stars all around the page!   Most were handcut from a sheet of the Celebrate paper. I also used smaller wooden stars as stencils to make the hand drawn ones.  I must say that I am a huge fan of the star!  I am totally enjoying making layouts using strips of paper as opposed to large blocks...change feeds the creative soul.

Kinda like cupcakes and chocolate feed the inner sugar demon...anyone have an intervention for me?
