Cake Time! - Etsy Inspired Challenge #86

Hello! Today I am heading to a friend's house for an all day crafting event and I am sooooo excited! I don't think I have had a girls' day out for at least a year now (I know I really should be better about taking time for myself...I'm working on it. :) I love being a mom but I do really need a day off and today is the day! I am planning on getting some scrapbooking done, enjoying some good food, and fun time with friends!

Since it's Saturday I have an Etsy Inspired project to share with you all. And in honor of National Scrapbook day, I actually have a layout to share! :) Our featured Etsy shop this week, Isabell's Umbrella, is such a cute paper goods shop. I was inspired by all the fun, adorable images and this birthday card.

I scrapbooked my oldest son's first birthday party using My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary line.

I absolutely love MME's Quite Contrary collection...all the papers are so fun! The little pooh cut out is actually from one of the party decorations that I kept (for 6 years!)...glad I did! :) Here's a close up of my little guy eating his first cake!

This week both Isabell's Umbrella and our sponsor, Lawn Fawn, are offering up some fabulous prizes for the winners!

To play along all you have to do is visit Isabell's Umbrella and find an item that inspires you. Create a project of your own...remember that you can make just about anything crafty (a card, scrapbook layout, altered item, jewelry, a painting). Link your project up to the Etsy Inspired blog by Friday at noon PST for your chance to win one of this week's prizes!

Visit the rest of the Design Team to see what inspiring projects they have come up with this week!
So, what are your plans today? Doing anything fun for National Scrapbook Day? There is a lot going on in blog land and probably at your local scrapbook store too! Have fun! Hopefully I will have lots of scrapbook pages to show for all my kid-free crafting time today! :)
