Money Cake & Scarf...
This is a "Money Cake" created by my lovely Granddaughter Amber for her sister Amy's Bridal Shower recently. I think the gift of time to carefully roll all those $1 bills and then form them into this cake is the true gift of love. The total of $200 is an extra nice gift for the Bride-to-Be Amy. Amber you did an amazing job on this!
I am a very proud Grandma to these two Granddaughters...Amy (25) holding her money cake and sister Amber (27) hugging her. I love the fact that these two girls are sharing their love and smiles! I love them both more than words can express!
Amy also received this "Money Scarf" which was created with Washi tape holding the bills together and then taped into the lid of a really cute stand-up box so that when she removed the lid money just kept coming. I'd say Amy did very well at her Bridal shower. There were lots of guests and she got lots of cash for the upcoming Caribbean Honeymoon in June. My daughter hosted this at her home and of course went all out decorating in the tropical theme. She also had amazing food and drinks with Dan (her man) as the bartender to all the ladies. I wasn't able to attend but you can be certain I will be at the wedding!
My Granddaughter Amber is also participating in NLWM 2015 this year. I think she is going to love and surprise her pen pal with some fabulous letters. I was late mailing this week. Our Winter was a "One Day Wonder". We had four inches of snow and it was heavy and wet. Because the trees are already leafed out there were lots of damaged limbs falling. Our Statement Crepe Myrtle had its mother branch split in two and break off in opposite directions. Mr. C contributes the catastrophe to the heavy snow and the very drought dry trunk of the tree. I do hope we can salvage part of it.
Creative Bliss on this beautiful April day...
