CIC 292


Hope you all enjoyed your holidays.  It's a busy crazy time of year.
At our house I hosted Thanksgiving and three weeks later hosted a College Graduation party for my son.  He graduated from the University of Montana.  We are so proud of all his hard work!

Then came Hanukkah/Christmas and New Years Eve.  
Whew, I am in crafting withdrawal.  

So glad to be back to our weekly Cupcake Inspirations Challenges.
It is such a fun Design Team to be on.
Fun to have cupcake photos for inspiration each week and great people to work with.
