Pieces of the Story, Cake Crazy

I love to bake!  Cakes are my absolute weakness, especially chocolate ones.  And birthday's are, of course, the perfect excuse to whip up a batch!  Which is exactly what I did here in the featured photo for this scrapbook layout of my son's birthday.  I was inspired to scrapbook this occasion thanks to the Global Design Project "Cooking, Baking & Making" theme this week.

I used the Cake Crazy stamp set to make this little stamped cake embellishment.  The layering in this set is fun to play with and makes creating multi-coloured images so easy!  I used soft suede for the 'chocolate' cake base and coloured the spots directly on the stamp of the overlapping layering piece with Stampin' Write markers to mimic the look of the m&m's decorating my cupcakes in the included photo.

I'm a big fan of creating your own background papers.  This decorative circle was made by stamping the Cake Crazy sentiment over and over again on a whisper white circle (cut using the largest from the layering circles framelits).
