Melis just makes me feel good with her designs. Wish I was as talented.

This project is positively adorable! What fabulous party favors for a little girl's birthday. Melissa is the best!

Unfortunately I see that the cupcakes are already sold out, a day after this post! This seems to happen quite often with Emma's Paperie. It would seem that if Melissa Phillips uses a product in her projects, that would warrant a very large order, hint hint! :)
