Hi! It's me Kathy Martin, excited to be your guest blogger this week at SEI Lifestyle! If you missed my introduction and want to know a little bit about me, just scroll down to Friday's post. After a lovely and restful weekend I'm ready to share some more projects from SEI's Moonrise line! Today I have a scrapbook page to show you of my son enjoying a pumpkin cupcake.

Look at that face! Can you tell the cupcakes were a hit? LOL I thought a round theme would work perfectly for a cupcake page so I used the entire corner of the 'quiescent' patterned paper as a template. I simply placed my patterned paper over a brown piece of card stock and pierced around the circles with an awl. Then with a pencil I drew a curved line where I wanted to cut out the corner of the patterned paper revealing the circles.

To mimic some circles of the patterned paper I used a piece of clear vellum to frame my son's photo. The look of the vellum is almost identical to the frosted circles of the patterned paper. I used the Wizard die cut machine and Nestabilities dies along with my Silhouette to cut all the scalloped circles.

What do you think of the title letters? Aren't they yummy? They are SEI's Dark Chocolate Puff Stickers! I used them and a Gleaming Pearl die cut accent for my title on and to double as a secret door for my journaling. The final touches are a few more Gleaming Pearl die cuts, some brads, a couple of the beautiful SEI Metal Filigree accents and a simple craft string bow.

Now how about a recipe for those pumpkin cupcakes? They are heavenly and if you like cream cheese frosting, you are going to love them! The recipe is from Ina Garten, otherwise known as the Barefoot Contessa.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and can return tomorrow for another. Until we meet again, have a fantastic day! :) Kathy
