Cool waves and it's a bowling party

It's been so hot here the last week that I wish I was that fish in the water! I hate the hot hot humid weather. I'm a crank when I am sticky, ew! So today the fish is appropriate...the cool colors and waves are refreshing!

This fish school is another new release from Whipper Snapper. It's colored with Copics and paired up with some fun paper from Imaginisce. I punched the top edge of the dp panel with a Fiskars Wave Border punch and added some random raindrops to the dp and for the fish's bubbles. Hello is from the Anna Wight designed set Sending Happy Thoughts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We celebrated Joey's birthday at a local bowling alley with some of his friends on Sunday. I appropriately made him bowling pin and bowling ball cupcakes. The design came from Hello Cupcake, a wonderful cupcake decorating book. Mine however were less like bowling pins and more like melting ghosts...but in the end they were cute and the kids loved them! And I was done making them by midnight Saturday night and able to take some pictures and get some sleep...so it was all good! You can't expect anything less than last minute with me these days... Anyway, here are some pics!
