Hello friends. 
The Scrappin' Roots Monthly Layout Challenge has been canceled this month due to my upcoming move. 
I wanted to share a little something different with you all today. I know I almost always post a paper crafted project but not today!
Last year I had the privilege of making a towel cake as a gift for a friends bridal shower (scope it out below).
The bride's niece (she's 9) loved it so much she told her mother that she wanted to give one to her soon-to-be step mother. Her mother asked me way back then if I would put one together as her gift to give to her step mom at her bridal shower. 
I didn't really have a plan or a pattern of decoration for THIS cake I just figured out once I knew the colors and bought the towels I'd go from there. Here is how it turned out and I absolutely LOVE it. 
I cannot believe how perfect it came out. 
I lined the top and bottom of each layer with grossgrain ribbon in solid brown and mint w/ brown polka-dots. The polka-dots are what inspired me to use the buttons (Which were 50% off at JoAnn's, SCORE!) and to steer away from flowers. I actually forgot to get something for the top of the cake and when I was putting it all together, falling in love with it more and more, I got to thinking...."What kind of topper would Buddy The Cake Boss put on top of this cake if it were actually fondant?" I think I got it right! I believe he would have gone with a bow of some type. I LOVE how well it matched the green & brown polka-dot ribbon.

I think this cake looks good enough to eat and I want to display it in my own house, don't you?

What other kind of crafting projects do you do aside from paper projects? Do you do any?

I hope you have been inspired to try something different and new.
Keep Kreating, 
Erin

The cake is adorable. And yes, Buddy would have added a bow! You did a fantastic job. When I am not working on paper crafting, I love to paint and alter wood objects. check out my blog and breeze through some of the old posts if you would like.
Happy Crafting Erin!
