NSD 2014

This was my first time ever celebrating NSD alone.  I had a totally wonderful day.  My goals were posted on Scraps of Color blog to 1) Complete a Design Team project, 2) Make 10 mini album kits, 3) Alter two picture frames, 4) Make 20 cards from my stash, 5) Mail cards to Sunshine Mail, 6) Play with paint, and 7) Post my day!  Well what had happen    The mini albums came in handy when 10 graduates from our Delta GEMS program were having their ceremony.  This mini tag album ended up being their gift. I altered one frame which was my DT project at Scraps of Color E:Spire, which I played with paint.  I made only two cards that were requested and my Sunshine Mail is postal! Check out each tag.  I was inspired by Frilly and Funkie. The mini tag album is all put together towards the end.

Got my hands in a little mixed media with this one.  I sweet old lady once told me to keep a song in my heart and a Psalm in my mind so I wanted to pass that on to them.   The sheet music is from my church bulletin.
Putting all the pieces together for the kits......It was right on time and easy to prepare.  

 Each stack ready to be put together and delivered.

 Here they are all put together with a binder ring and a pretty red ribbon.  It is my prayer that the graduates are inspired with the positive messages as they enter into the new chapter of their life.  I Remember When...  

Now for the icing on the cake....Well cupcakes.  I was craving for a healthy sweet treat.  In between all the crafty fun, I baked some sweet potato bran muffins!  This is the batter. Oooey Gooey and Yummy for my Tummy.
 This is the set up.  You know I had to make them special.  NSD is an Awesome Day to Celebrate! Right?

And the end result!  I topped them off with a homemade streusel. Now I need to do a layout and include the recipe.  I'll be sure to make them again.

I apologize for the long post, but how can you shorten such a fun filled NSD day!
