WOYWW #93 and winner of the blog candy

Another visit over to Julia's Stamping Ground What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?  You can see things sort of thrown around this week and not really put away yet. In the bottom right of the picture, you can see a wee bit of some new twine I just bought for Charla for her birthday and of course had to get some for myself!

I do have to tell you about this cupcake page on my desk though!

I belong to a monthly Cookbook club. Our leader is Jill McDonald, owner of Urban Papers, the  local papercrafting store. Every month Jill whips up one of her favorite recipes, brings it for us to sample. We all sit around, eat our yummy and  visit and scrap together! Tonight she brought a delicious cupcake recipe named Hostess Cupcakes. (a chocolate cupcake with a marshmallow filling and fudgy frosting on the top) Now you girls across the ocean may not be familiar with this treat, but it has been around the USA for ages. This is a "knock off" homemade version of the store bought.  I would have brought my cupcake home and taken a picture for this post tonight, but really...it was gone in about one minute!

I can not even begin to tell you how delish this treat was! I asked my friend Charla to snap a picture before I ate this treat up in two seconds flat!

Make sure to take a close up peek at the flower on this layout....the center is a zipper!
 We gathered  up the zipper so it ruffled up and stuck it on with a pretty brad..  We also used some Coordinations polka dot paper and did a little sanding to highlight the dots.  The stamped sentiment is from Maya Road.



a better view of the two pages

close up of the flower with the fun zipper center!

Hope you all can join in this week...stop in and say Hello to the other Workdesk crafters! You don't even have to link up only on Wednesday...we visit all week long!


Oops...forgot to tell you who won my blog candy from last week's WOYWW.  drumrolllll........The winner is  Posh Creations! Thanks to all of you who left such fun input on products you had to have, but never used!


Pin It!

Hostess cupcakes? Oh my, I'm doomed! I better try these quick because we're going on a 21 day fast April 1...

Is the gathered part under the zipper paper or is it the zipper? It's just gorgeous!! Lucky you to get to go have scrappy fun! I may have to start my own club as there's nothing like that here.

Minxy said...

My what a busy desk today Sue, love the cards, that zip detail is very cool.
I had 2 delish cupcakes myself the other day from costa coffee, they were only tiny but they were filled with white choc & jam and chocolate sauce. I've never had any with a soft centre b4 and boy were they yummy.
Happy Wednesday

What a great way to build a recipe binder...and a fab way to crop! I'm not familiar with Devils Food Cake either, but I'm guessing Ms Crocker might put me right??! Ain't that zipper flower a great idea - could even be use don a boy LO or card, clever. Loving the array of text stamps on your desk again.

Love that zipper flower you made, and boy does that cupcake look yummy!!

Roban Studio said...

What a clever idea to make your flower with a zipper. And I LOVE Hostess cupcakes. Never knew the filling was made from Marshmallow creme! But now that I think about it, that's exactly what the texture is. Thanks for sharing your desk. #19

theneon said...

I am just "green" with envy Sue. This is so delightful even tasty without the calories. Thank you so much for continuing to be my blog friend even when I have come up dry on posts for awhile. I have missed visiting you and will come back when I have a full cup of coffee! I adore your work.

MaggieC said...

I think we should ban all talk of food from the blogs. Chocolate and cup cakes do not help the diet. they look too delicious.

Terri said...

My desk looks like that sometimes too! Great recipe pages. I especially like the zipper flower.

Online Bakery Delivered said...

I agree with you MaggieC. they make me so hungry!Buy Cakes

lisa said...

Love your zip flower, what a brilliant idea.
Thanks for sharing.

Oh cupcakes! Not what I need right now as we've booked a holiday by the beach in a month (South Carolina) and I've been living in bulky sweats all winter and now I have to see if the shorts still fit!!! Love you desk, so much fun and so much going on as always!.

Can I ask you a favor as you have a lot of blog visitors!! Can I ask you to look at this post please? It's a Mo Manning digi image for $1 with all proceeds going to help Japan, please spread the word if you can, thanks in advance!!

Mary said...

First, thank you for the great comment on my blog. I'm happy that I found you....now those cupcakes... I don't think they will fit into my Weight Watcher plan, they sure look good! What a great layout, as yummy as the cupcakes! I've got to agree with Shirley...Love the flower. I really enjoyed your bio. Seems we have the same problem. I thought when I retired I'd have plenty of time to play....boy was I wrong. Thanks for sharing your workspace!

Denise Marzec said...

Oh COOL! Love that zipper flower!

Sue said...

These chocolate cupcakes were my ultimate favorite thing when I was a kid!!! The homemade version looks delish! Love the entire card, the flower is wonderful.

Hugs
Sue

Leslie Miller said...

Well, I'll be! A zipper! I may have to break my sugar hiatus for those cupcakes. I've always had a weakness for Hostess cupcakes and I'll bet the homemade ones are even better!

Silver MLM said...

WHY does your desk always look like mine?? I love the zipper flower.

SueH said...

Oh Sue, you have me sitting here drawling over the thought of that Chocolate cupcakes!

Your desk looks very interesting indeed this week and I can spy some rather lovely sentiment stamps there.

The double page LO is looking great too.
I love the Colour theme and the flower is fantastic. Can’t say I’ve ever seen one made with a zipper before.

Happy Crafting!
Sue
