This was the very first cake I decorated after starting my lessons. After squeezing out countless little stars, I thought my hand was going to give up on me. But since I'm very determined, I finished it. Some people call it stubborn ... go figure. What ever it was, it kept me going till it was all covered! In the end it was worth, because on Easter Sunday we went to have coffee with friends and I took this cake and everyone enjoyed it.
I was born in Lisbon, Portugal but raised in Durban, South Africa. We have now called Pearland, Texas, home for the last 18 years. I'm a stay at home mom who has been married to my best friend for 30 years, and we have two wonderful children, a daughter who is 25 and a son who is 20.
Although I have always enjoyed scrapbooking, it wasn't until a few of years ago that my affair with paper crafting began. Now I love all aspects of this wonderful and very fulfilling hobby.
My other hobbies are reading and baking and spending time with the family. We all enjoy travelling and visiting new places.
