Patches of Pink Link Up Thursday and Design Team Post

Friends, It has been a while and things have been super crazy around here. Noah just finished school. He graduated to the 5th grade . On the last day of scool he received 3 awards. So proud of him. We did a birthday paty for him almosta month after his birthday .That should tell you how crazy things have been  iusually never wait that long to do his birthday party. But we had no choice this year and he was fine with it.  One of my goals for this year is to become a design team member. But not just for any blog. Picky  iguess.. jsut as the Design Team blog owner should be as well. As I said  Ihave tons of photos to post of his styled party and I will be adding them very soon. This will be the first in my portfolio of parties. I guess  Iwill have to go backwards from his tenth birthday back and the parties  ihave done for others there as well but for right now here is the backdrop for my entry into the design team and link up at Patches of Pink.  Thanks for looking and wish me luck. TFL and  Ican not wait to share the rest of the photos.

For the Kiddos Blog Hop Info

Hi Ladies, stopping in this morning to say a few things. One, Thank you so much for stopping by to comment on the For the Kiddos Blog Hop yesterday. Weren't all the ladies in the hop so very talented. Laura Cline of Making Things Pretty organized the hop and did a great job. She has informed us that for blog candy that Crafty Moms Stamps is offerering a stamp set for hopping along and commenting. A stamp set of your choice. So isn't that a really nice treat.??. I am offering blog candy and will be doing the drawing at weeks end as  I am featuring Elmo all week long because that was my sons birthday them when he turned one and is turning ten this  Sunday. So to be clear I  made cookie pops yesterday that in the picture look quite small but they are not. They are huge and in the picture at the bottom of the post you can see the COOKIE POP Wilton pan I used. It is a 3 inch cookie but ours turned out to be a good 4-5 inches or bigger. I put way too much dough in the form. So about half full will do if you are going to be making the cookies. Do not fill the form to the rim but if you do want hearty cookies like those then feel free to fill it up. I myself would have used a biger stick such as a popsicle stick. With that said when making cookie pops the stick can ruin the integrity of the cookie. So although they held up fine, you have to be really careful and not mess with the cookie stick at all and try not to handle the stick when decorating the cookie. 3. Some people asked what tip I used. it was the grass-hair tip from Wilton. and finally I am making cake pops too this week and that is what I will be offerering as blog candy. The actual ingredients to make the cake pops. Decorations and all. So the popsticks,candy melts in red and the facial decorations ect along with the recipe for making cake pops and technique for making Elmos fur. I think The hop went great and again thanks s to Laura Cline for organizing it although she had so much on her plate ,she did a wonderful job organizing the whole thing Would love to hop with her again. Oh yeah one more thing. If I reach my goal of 220 plus followers this week Elmo's Party cart up for grabs. Havea great day and come back later and check out my Elmo project for the day.

For the Kiddos Blog Hop

for the Kiddos blog Hop Elmo Cookie Pops. Over 4-5 Inches. Used Red White and Black Butter cream with a grass tip for Elmo's fur. I will be doing Elmo posts all week. I so love this cart and this was my son Noah's first birthday theme He will be ten this weekend. So while I am planning his big boy party I decided that I would take a walk down memory lane and do Elmo posts all week. The pan for these cookies can be found at any place you can find wilton pans and not just for cookies. Last year I used them to mold rice krispie treats to decorate as baseballs with each childs name on it. I think I used a little too much cookie dough.With frosting I beleive the ookies each weigh a good 12-14 oz almost a lb. The cookies turned out huge. Half the amount would have worked fine but my son thinks that the size is perfect. Bigger cookie more frosting yummm. Thanks for looking. I will post cake pops too this week .My blog candy for the week all though this is a one day hop will be everything you need to make Elmo cake pops. Not cookie pops but cake pops so do not forget to leave your comments today and this week. Oh and do not forget to follow for a chance at winning.
