Scrapbook-Themed Cake {Bridal Shower}

I love a challenge…and arts and crafts so this was a fun one!

An old friend called me up to see if we could create a bridal shower cake with a scrapbooking theme. Hmmm….interesting! I had total creative control which was very exciting.

After a few sketches, I came up with an idea to incorporate some photos of the happy couple, as if the cake was an actual scrapbook.

What do you think?? (photos were blurred for privacy)

I had to do some research on the paper patterns so that was my excuse to run to Michaels. {By the way, I like to find ridiculous excuses to validate my trips to Michaels…(but what if I want handmade pillows for my out-of town guests which I don’t have? Or, I probably need more cake pans since the 106 I already have are looking dim)…but this excuse was actually justified for once!}

The employees probably thought I was nuts as I just stood there drooling over the millions of paper patterns in their paper aisle…but oh well. I buy enough stuff in that store to really be able to do anything I want, right ? RIGHT?!

I like the orange scissors at the top, almost forming a heart.

Man, this finished cake really makes me want to get my hands on more crafty stuff…sigh. Ok off to Michaels again, who’s coming with???
