Pink Saturday


DSC04010Today is Pink Saturday and if you stop by Bev from How Sweet The Sound you will find lots of lovely Pink posts. Who wears a peanut butter cup tutu you might ask?


DSC04010An artist who needs to come up with a piece of artwork using a candy wrapper.



DSC04010I call this challenge The Peanut Butter Cup Ballet.


DSC04010In our Creativity Boot Camp, we were asked to create a piece of artwork using a candy wrapper. Well, I am a Peanut Butter Cup junkie, so it wasn't too difficult to eat a few to give me enough wrappers to create this Peanut Butter Cup Couture design.


DSC04010Speaking of something sweet...


marie-for-gabriela-bowOne of our favorite Pink Saturday ladies, Gabriela Delworth has published a book, which she just sent to me.


marie-for-gabriela-bowThe book is filled with glitter, and lovely tutorials for the sweetest crowns ever.


marie-for-gabriela-threeSo, if you stop by Gabriela's Pink Saturday post you will surely find some lovely Marie Antionette delights. She has her book for sale on her etsy shop.


marie-for-gabriela-bowThe song for this post is Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.



This is Cocoa and Sam's cousin Fiona. My sister, Susan's dog, isn't she cute? This adorable Pink Sweater, a Fiona Couture original, was designed by Susan and can be purchased for a pooch holiday gift on her etsy shop.

How clever! Of course, eating that many p'nut btr cups would cause me to be unable to fit into a tutu-who am I kidding - I can't fit into a tutu now! Is it your birthday? I saw something in the photo about a b'day. If so, happy birthday! laurie

Oh, that it too-too cute! ;-) Sorry, Karen, I couldn't resist. It really is adorable, and I like the way you made the candy her skirt. I would have chosen Hershey Kisses, and I would use the glittery foil for a silver ensemble.

That book looks fabulous. What a great cover. I'm so proud of Gabriella! :-)

Happy Pink Saturday to you...

Good evening dearest friend! I saw your wonderful work on Gabriella's blog and I am going again to see my sweet Nancy's work. What a great event; and your peanut butter ballet is just innovative, sweet and beautiful. But of course, all your work is blessed of the Lord and it brings such joy. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND THANKSGIVING! Anita
