Tummy Yummy with The Crafty Pad

 Before I get to this weeks challenge at The Crafty Pad I would like  to share with you all a quick photo of our weekend.
This weekend we were blessed with a super quick 48 hour visit from hubby who flew home to help us celebrate Our Little Miss Emile turning the BIG ONE!

The time goes so slow between his visits home but so fast when he is here :( We had a wonderful weekend and Little Miss Emilie loved having her daddy home even if it was only for a blink of an eye :(  It is moments like these I have come to treasure and hold close to my heart.

But enough with the tears and onto things that make us happy and that would be crafting away to this weeks challenge and I assure you it is something really yummy this week!
You guessed it! This week The Crafty Pad girls wanna see 

And this week we are being sponsored by the lovely Crafty Emma Store.
The random winner will scoop up their choice of Memory Box 6x6 Paper Pad!
Have you seen these papers? 
They are so adorable that if you haven't seen them then I assure you you will be adding them to your wish /must have list! 

This week I could not resist getting my Copics out & coloring The Crafty Pad Berry Sweet Strawberry that you can purchase HERE.   I thought this would go perfectly as a label for one of my jars of homemade Strawberry Jam.  A jar of jam can't be given alone, so I whipped up a gorgeous little piklet/pancake hamper basket to go with it.  

The hamper contains a mix & shake pancake satchel, a can of ready whipped cream, the jar of homemade strawberry jam & a few chocolates thrown in for good measure :)

I got creative with my embellishments this week & set to making some of my favorite flowers in pink.  I added one to the lid of the strawberry jam & I made a really nice big one to place on the basket handle.  I added some adorable strawberry buttons I found at Scrappers Haven the other day & to keep with the homely feel I went with raffia today & added one big ribbon bow on the basket handle. 

This little basket full of goodies I am donating to my girls daycare center for them to use on a cooking day.  I think little finger people would love shaking the mix up & I am sure those little tummy's will love eating the results :P

Remember - to play along with The Crafty Pad Challenge you do not need to use a Crafty Pad image but we sure do like to see them, so please use them if you have one :) 

I hope I will see you at this weeks challenge - you have till Saturday Evening at 8pm GMT to get your entries in!
