Definitely thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif . I think you got the theme down pat and looking real good!

Welcome to CC btw. Just an FYI, if you'd like to have comments posted on your pic itself you will want to go into your profile and under the prefences section you'll want to select yes to "Allow other members to post comments on my photos". If you want email notification of those comments select yes to "Always notify me of new comments".

Also, here is a link to commonly used acronyms on CC in case you haven't seen it yet:

Once again, great job on the cake (bet your friend loved it)!

Xstitcher, for your first time, I think it's great! I'm too afraid to try, so I completely honor you for going for it. It is super cute!

Hi NYCGiGi. I actually wasn't the one who made the cake but I'm sure Kel will figure out that you mean to compliment her on a job well done. icon_biggrin.gif

Very cute!! Is this the one from Debbie Brown's '50 easy party cakes'?

If so, was it difficult or easy as the title of her book claims?? icon_biggrin.gif

thumbs_up.gif Kellyanne - I haven't had the nerve to try any models yet! It must feel good to get that first one out of the way! Practice makes perfect!
