This week has just gotten away from me. I do have lots of things to share. Projects, pictures and my favorite Cupcakes!

 Friday afternoon, Zoe and I both needed a little pick me up. 
I made the executive decision it was time to go back to the cupcake shop. 
Not only did we have a nice little mommy daughter date, but we got to try 2 more flavors on our list!

My new favorite, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip.

Pumpkin cupcake with chocolate chips inside, 
a semi-sweet chocolate ganache glaze topped with cream cheese frosting.

And Zoe got the Dirty Turtle, I'm pretty sure she just wanted the mini Oreo cookie on top,
 but she ate almost the entire thing.
The Dirty Turtle is a chocolate cupcake, with a chocolate and sweet cream glaze, 
topped with a mint Oreo frosting. 
The mint frosting was a bit powerful, but the cake itself was yummy.

Next up, I made another layout with my September Polka Dot Whimsy Kit. I've been watching some YouTube videos about using mists and embossing techniques, since I have quite the collections of colors but don't always use them.
For this layout I used three different yellow mists, as well as my AC mustard Zing. While I was embossing I discovered a fun technique. 
I stamped the word "happy" right after I had splattered some buttermilk mist on the page.
I coated the area with my embossing powder, and it stuck to the not dry yet mist. 
I didn't want to wipe it off, I used my heat gun on it and voila, embossed splatter! 
I will definitely be using this technique more often, I love the raised look.

Onto Halloween, I'm having the hardest time deciding what Zoe should be for Halloween. I'm not super into Halloween, but Zoe's preschool has a big party and they go sing at the old folks homes in the area, so I don't want her to be without a costume. Any Ideas?
